As you’ve probably noticed by now, your Facebook page looks a little different these days. Facebook officially moved everyone, including brand pages, over to their new “Timeline” design in April 2012. Part of the new Timeline layout is a large 850-pixel wide image called the Cover Photo. Facebook Cover Photos are a serious piece of real estate on your Facebook page and gives users an opportunity to visually express themselves beyond their Profile image.
How Facebook Users Are Using Their Cover Photos
So far, Facebook users have creatively used their Cover Photos to showcase everything from their kids and beautiful sunsets to… lobsters? We thought that the random Cover Photo coincidence of both Jon Accarrino‘s “pet lobster” and Jennifer Kavanagh‘s lobster dinner was worthy of a few mins of Adobe Photoshop time.
