alt text for facebook images

hey all,

I am hoping to find you all in a "there's no such thing as a stupid
question" mood.

I am trying to add alt text to a facebook banner and profile image.
According to FB I should be able to do this by adding a description to
the photo that then becomes the alt text. I've been trying this approach
and it just doesn't seem to take.

I've posted some screenshots of me trying to add alt text and what I end
up with here

Am I missing something really obvious? Is there somewhere else I should
be entering this information?

Thanks for your help,
