HOW TO: Update Your Facebook Page’s Cover Image

ShortStackCoverImageTemplate650The cover image is a dominant presence on Facebook pages, and Facebook application creator ShortStack designed a template for page administrators seeking to revamp their cover images, as well as some related tips.

ShortStack’s cover image tips, from a post on its blog, were:

  • Update your cover photo frequently — once per month is ideal.
  • Always include a photo description when you update your cover photo image; in the description, provide links and a call to action.
  • Use arrows and other design elements to direct Timeline visitors’ eyes to the like button or to an app.
  • Coordinate your cover photo with your profile photo.
  • If you haven’t yet, experiment with free photo-enhancing sites such as Pic-Monkey.
