Below you’ll find a before and after Facebook Timeline Cover graphic. It’s only a small change, I’d call it “tweak,” but it punches up a basic graphic by adding a tag-line and award.
Facebook Timeline Cover guidelines don’t allow you to put a phone number or call-to-action in your timeline graphic (dimensions are 851×315 pixels).
From Facebook Page Guidelines (http://www.facebook.com/page_guidelines.php)
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:
- Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it on socialmusic.com”
- Contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that
should go in your Page’s “About” section
- References to Facebook features or actions, such as “Like” or “Share” or an arrow pointing
from the cover photo to any of these features
- Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”
You can however put tags lines and award graphics!
A Facebook Timeline Cover is a powerful tool to create interest and promote your brand/company, with some creative thinking you can get some real PUNCH with it and compliment your existing branding strategy.
