Tips for having a great cover photo for Facebook Timeline:

  • Choose a strong, vibrant photo or a few of your most popular photos to collage together
  • Don’t try to include too much info on your header
  • People should not have to decode the header. Let them hit the page, understand the header immediately, and scroll down
  • No calls to action (such as “Like us!”), urls, or other advertisements in headers
  • Leave your logo out and include it as your profile picture
