Facebook cover pictures, a very nice and popular feature of Facebook Timelines. But can also be one of the worst thing of your profile if you are not using it properly. Many of my friends remain confused for this use. So here I am suggesting some tips. May be they can help you also. While using your own picture as cover you should always keep the privacy thing in mind. 1. Cover pictures are the identity of your profile, it should be good as this is the first thing that a visitor is going to see on your profile. You can choose from thousands of beautifully designed and free cover pictures available online on different websites.. 2. The orientation of the picture should be landscape not portrait. Portrait is a rectangle that is shorter on the top and bottom and longer on the sides, like a portrait and landscape is longer on the top and bottom and shorter on the sides like you would paint a picture of a landscape. 3. The exact size of a Facebook cover picture is 851 pixels wide by 315 pixels tall, try avoiding pictures smaller than this standard size else it will stretch your image. 4. Make sure that nothing in the cover picture is hiding behind your profile picture, for example itrsquos not a good idea to hide one of your friends behind your profile picture in a group photo 5. In case you are updating your own picture please keep in mind that these pictures are public and visible to 900 million other users of Facebook. Unfortunately itrsquos not possible to make cover pictures album private. If you still want to upload your own picture then itrsquos always a good idea to delete the older pictures in cover pictures album. You can upload them again anytime you want to. 6. Even if you remove your current cover pic, this will not make the cover picture album hidden. People can still view your older cover pictures. 7. Donrsquot upload same picture every time, to reuse a picture as your cover go to your timeline, rollover mouse to cover picture and click ldquoChange Coverrdquo. Then click ldquoChoose from Photoshelliprdquo from the drop down list. 8. Reposition the photo properly the main subject of that picture should be visible on your profile. Avoid cutting body parts or faces as this will look bad.
