More and more businesses these days are using their Facebook page as a way of reaching out to consumers. Social media is a large part of our lives now and the Facebook timeline cover is one of the best ways to grab our attention and focus towards a product. With its prominent placement the facebook timeline cover photo is almost like a billboard advertisement for your brand.
Cover photos have been an integral part of the Facebook design for over a year now and brands have been experimenting and competing to come up with some highly creative designs. Constraining the brand design to just one large rectangle and one small square may cause difficulties for some designers yet there is still a lot that can be done. Integrating the profile picture with cover photo for example with Carlsberg is a really clever way of using the design to benefit them.
