Five Tips to Help You Choose Cover Photos for Your Facebook Timeline

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

Cover photos seem to be the most popular feature of the new Facebook Timeline feature, so many users are wondering how to make the best of them. Here are a few useful tips to help you out.

How to Choose your Timeline cover pictures:

  1. Cover photos are not supposed to be just a bigger size version of your profile pictures; if you set a cover photo, your profile picture will still be displayed on your page, so using the same picture for both categories will look ugly and will be redundant.
  2. Think of that cover as if it were an ad or a billboard - it has to capture the viewers' attention immediately, intrigue them, make them want to learn more about you and what you do. Ads do not have a lot of text or too many details - they just have to grab people's interest in a matter of seconds. If you know how to use photo-editing programs such as Photoshop, put your creativity at work to obtain some one-of-a-kind photos. However, be cautious, because these covers are public, and although it may seem funny to you to put your head on top of a semi-naked lingerie model's body, some other people, like your family, professors or your boss and coworkers might not see the joke as funny as you see it.
  3. Create more cover photos in order to rotate them every once in a while. Nobody wants their "audience" to get bored.
  4. If you want to promote a service or a product, and you want to use your timeline cover photo to help you with that, be aware that Facebook does not allow uploading advertising content as a cover photo. One is not supposed to add purchasing information on their Timeline cover. These also include calls to action like "buy this now!", information intended for a web page's "about section", etc.
  5. If you do not know what image to use as your timeline cover, you can always check on one of the many websites that offer preformatted images for Timeline or that can help you create your own image in a few simple steps. Most of these sites are free, but some of them may cost a few dollars.

Through these new cover photos, each user's Facebook page is meant to look like a personal website and thus, make sure you make something original of your profile, something you can be proud of.
