Facebook Timeline is hereeee! As Facebook comes out with its latest timeline design, a new cover photo feature emerges too. Along with your profile picture, you can now choose a photo to further represent you and your business.
How Do I Upload a Cover Photo?
If this is your first time creating a Facebook page, on the main top right side, click “Add a Cover” and from there you will simply be given the option to upload a photo.
If changing or updating your photo, simply hover your mouse of the cover photo and from there you can choose photos to upload, choose from existing photos, reposition the picture or remove it completely.
What Type of Photo?
Just like your profile picture, it’s important to choose something that represents your business. According to Facebook, there are a few “no-no’s” such as including price/purchase information, contact information (these should go in “About” section”), “like” or “share” buttons, or callouts such as “Get it now”.
Here at LKR for our Dash Community photos, we choose a photo of the team along with a slogan. This photo shows the personality of the business while staying professional.
