You can hate it, or love it, but there’s no way of getting around it theses days. Me I haven’t made up my mind yet, but I work with it all the same.
If you have a Facebook page like we do (ours is called Willow Health Treatment) and are trying, with it’s help to drive people to you website, it can’t hurt to let people know what you do. Now Facebook has come up with a good idea (again) and that is to give you a large space to show what you’ve got.
The release of Facebook’s timeline profile came with an area known as the Facebook Cover Photo right at the top. Your profile picture is now a little smaller and rests in the lower left corner of the cover picture. Facebook’s new cover picture allows individuals like us, to express themselves in a much larger space.
Most people just add another photo. However, if your creative and looking for a unique way to express yourselves. Customizing Facebook’s cover photo is a great way of doing it.
Below are the dimensions of the cover picture layout.
From Facebook FAQ Page:
“What are the dimensions for my Page’s cover photo?
Cover photos are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall. If you upload an image that’s smaller than these dimensions, it will get stretched to this larger size. The image you upload must be at least 399 pixels wide.
To get the best quality image and fastest load times for your Page, upload an sRGB JPG file that’s 851 pixels wide, 315 pixels tall and less than 100 kilobytes.”

(*note: There is a 1px border around the outside but that will not affect the size of the final image)
Profile Picture Thumbnail
For those of you that are designers and know CSS, the profile picture is positioned absolute. Not that it’s that important, but just saying. It sits 23px from the left and 92px up in the cover picture.
Border: 4px white (#ffffff)
Padding: 1px all around
So if your on Facebook this is me I’m Cool Man2 let’s be friends.
Note To Me: Stop Begging!
That’s it for now. This may help to make the net a much nicer place…
