The size of the banner is 850x314px -While the width needs to be exact, the height can be between 312-315 pixels. (You have a little
room to wiggle, it just happened that I applied 314 in the sample I used for this tutorial.) First, think roughly about what you want your
cover image to say. The time of grabbing just any photo is done with -or you wouldn't be reading this tutorial (or so I think!). Keep in
mind that you want this cover photo to summarize who you are and what you'd like the world (yes, the world) to see. -Think along the
lines of how you would like to be perceived. Write down on a piece of scrap paper or doodle on a tablet, an outline and perhaps a rough
layout. Something like:
: Facebook automatically places your name next to a thumbnail of your (what used to be a lot bigger) profile picture. It's your
choice whether you want to place it on the banner to create a good impression for visitors right away.
: Like a business card, a tagline is a summary that describes you. It should be clear, brief, and right to the point. There's always
an exception -depending on what you want to achieve- that would require more explanation. But it still should look inviting and easy to
: Now that you have given your brief description to the public, let's give the destinations. If you have more than one destination,
choose the ones that would bring the best results. Tread carefully: you don't want to blind your viewers. Here is what you want to
Website urls and logos
: How many do you have, both personal and business? Are you a proud grandmother or a proud mom? A cat
lover? Do you own Facebook fanpages? Twitter? LinkedIn? YouTube, MySpace, Google+, Blogspot, Wordpress, Squidoo, etc.??? How
many would you like to use? Rank them from most to least important to you. As you see from my own banner
, I have althogether seven
urls and three logos. Yes, it can be done with good taste!
Call to action
: If you are like me, this should be your ultimate goal for the whole banner. True, you display all your urls and logos, but
there's no way that Facebook would be generous enough to allow clickable links right on the banner. The chances of that happening is
when pigs fly; or, as Thais would say, "When it floods on a duck's back." Therefore, your call-to-action should be something which you
can control: to point out that your viewers can subscribe and/or add you.
"Face it, your online identity is a major part of your professional presence. How many moms have had their children noticed by the
recording industry? (That's right: if you can blurt out the name right away, that is the result of the power of social networking media.)
How many people have gotten fired because of their online identities? If you have ever "liked" a link, status, or comment, you, too, have
taken ownership of your online presence through social networking media, and no longer are acting as though, "I-only-want-to-
connect-with-my-old-friends-and-relatives." So, you may as well make sure your online identity is solid and reflects your good
