Arrow 20 awesome Facebook cover pages - what will you do with yours?
These screenshots of 20 amazing Facebook cover pages are certainly inspiring.

Have you turned on the preview for your own business page? What will you do with your cover page?

Any ideas?

Some of those were awesome. Wish I had the know-how and/or budget to do something that fancy. I just threw something simple together to get me started. It's pretty basic but does the job for now.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else does with their FB cover pages!

I changed mine and I think I am going to love the timeline on my page. Several clients are already thinking about theirs to particularly the timeline and events.

Thanks Tess for these resources. I am waiting since I will be transitioning my business down the road, hopefully by the summer and don't want to do it twice.

Awesome pages! I personally love the Timeline feature, and the image at the top but I can never get them crystal clear. I've tried so many different images (on my business and personal page) and nothing seems to be clear....does any one else have this issue too? Any suggestions?

Launch, I haven't had a problem with getting my cover images to display correctly, but know from experience with other aspects of a business page on FB that they often have strict guidelines for image size, filetype, etc. It sounds like maybe your image is too small or not the right dimensions.

The Facebook Help section has some info on this, specifically:

What if the image I want to use as my cover is too small?
Since your cover goes across the entire width of your timeline, the image you select for your cover has to be at least 720 pixels wide. This means you may not have the option to choose certain photos as your cover image, or you may get an error if you try uploading a photo that isn’t big enough. If the photo you want to use is too small, try uploading the photo in high resolution, or choosing a different photo.

There are also services you can try that will allow you to create an image using specialized software - you use your own images, or choose images from their stock selection, etc. Those might be worth trying? One that looks to be particularly well-developed: Timeline Cover Banner.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Tess! I found a digital image that I'm happy with and it's finally not blurry

OMG! Amazing and I agree if the budget was the same as some of those pages then the sky would be endless in ideas...I am stuck on trying to put together a good flash or You Tube presentation for prospective clients on my web page!

I love the new timeline and the really cool thing is that it doesn't require as much work to get a really cool look. All of those awesome designs are simply images. Granted, they are professional images, but we can get creative too! I decided to digitally 'scrapbook' my new timeline image. Our local weather guy changes his with the forecast, posting cool cloud formations, weather maps when we're looking at severe weather, etc. Sometimes you just have to think a little bit outside the box...
