    There's no way that's more than 20%... the design elements around the text certainly call attention to the text, but the text itself would be significantly less than 20%, perhaps as low as 10%.

    This one looks like between 10 to 20 percent. Not more than that for sure.

    I have been having a hard time with Facebook and their 20% rule, you're right that's not 20% for Facebook something is happening.

    Facebooks 20% is stupid, its a 4x4 grid. If any text is in those grid sections it counts the entire section as being text.

    It does look like it will fail that test...but it may just be good planning around the grid system.
