The importance of Facebook Cover Photos

Many dismiss the importance of Facebook Cover Photos because users only see them once when they go to check out a page or person, then they revert to seeing content in their news feed rather than going to the actual page, but with recent changes, any time someone hovers over a name of a brand or person on Facebook, a pop up reveals more information about that person or brand, including their cover photo, front and center.

For that and traditional branding reasons, it has become important to have a quality cover photo that doesn’t violate any Facebook rules (lest your Page be permanently deleted without warning), and is as clear and as clean as possible, as they tend to get fuzzy once uploaded to Facebook.

We’ve given you a cheat shee for all of the image sizes you’ll need, and above, we’ve linked to instructions on how to not upload fuzzy pictures, but if you’re feeling really creative after all of these inspirational examples, we have also shared with you a Photoshop template that will allow you to get ultra creative. Now you know how the design works, the rules, and the branding implications, so there is no excuse for a lazy or bad Cover Photo!
