In 4 days your business pages will all be converted to the TIMELINE format. Here are 2 tips to help get your page looking GREAT.
1. Make sure you format your logo and cover image to the correct sizes.
Your LOGO should be 180px X 180px
Updating your logo to this format ahead of time will eliminate the possibility of your logo being hidden or illegible. Facebook will automatically reformat your logo to a smaller size when uploaded but these dimensions will allow for the best resolution.
Your COVER IMAGE should be 851px X 315px. Facebook will allow you to reposition a LARGER photo if you want to use one that doesn’t exactly fit these dimensions.
When choosing your cover photo it is important to follow Facebook’s guideline. Your cover photo cannot include:
A. Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”.
B. Contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that should go in your Page’s “About” section.
C. References to Facebook features or actions, such as “Like” or “Share” or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features.
D. Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”.
Covers must not be false, deceptive or misleading, and must not infringe on third parties’ intellectual property. Please read the updated help files for Facebook Page TIMELINES: http://www.facebook.com/help?faq=%20276329115767498
2. Make sure you have updated the ABOUT, CONTACT INFO, and BASIC INFO sections of your pages profile.
This information will now be prominently displayed in the new page format. You can find these settings by clicking on the ABOUT text link in the new format or by clicking on MANAGE from the new Admin Panel on your page.
