What’s your favourite Facebook cover photo?
The recent changes to Facebook pages came as a surprise as they got rid of landing pages and replaced them with cover photos. Many people were a little disappointed with this, as their visitors got directly sent to the facebook pages where the wall can be seen instantly, instead of being sent to landing pages which have proven to be effective in getting more “likes.”
There is also the rule that you cannot add any promotional messages to these photos which has disappointed others. Some people have liked these changes though as it provides a new challenge and gives them the opportunity to experiment with new techniques.
Many businesses have been designing cover photos specifically for their pages while some of them have been creatively using photos they have taken. Here are 50 facebook cover photos that make great examples:-
