Facbook Timeline Cover Image March 2013
Prime Real Estate:
Are You Making the Most of Your Facebook Timeline Cover Image?
Exciting news! Facebook made some recent changes that I’m really happy about … they have updated their policy for timeline cover photos.
Ever since Facebook rolled out their timeline format and allowed us to add timeline cover images business owners have been torn between using this valuable real estate to promote their business and abiding by Facebook’s rules and guidelines regarding what you could and could not include on your timeline cover image.
[jbox title=”The new policy reads:”]All covers are public. This means that anyone who visits your Page will be able to see your cover. Covers can’t be deceptive, misleading, or infringe on anyone else’s copyright. You may not encourage people to upload your cover to their personal timelines. Covers may not include images with more than 20% text.[/jbox]
These Rules Were Omitted This Go Around:
If you were familiar with the previous wording you might remember you were not allowed to include calls to action, contact info, no mention of “Like” this page, no encouraging people to share page or content or tell your friends, or references to price or purchase info on your cover image photos. If you re-read the modified version above there is no mention of these restrictions.
These modifications are exciting but make sure you heed the wording “covers may not include images with more than 20% text.”
Fun … Fun!
It should be fun to see how creative people get with their 20% text allotment. I’ve done some research and many are confused as to how exactly we are to “measure” this 20% text … but there are no rules as to where or how this 20% can used in the image. LOL
Were You … Will You?
So … Were you following the rules prior to this update? Will you be updating your cover image to reflect the changes?
