Hot tips on Facebook Timeline for Pages

Facebook Timelines are here for Pages!  Ooo some good changes and some not so good.  But I get into that in my video.  In my timeline tutorial I talk about:

  • Your Cover photo and an easy way to create a fantastic looking cover photo.  Just remember that you can’t have any calls to action (like Click Like or Sign up for my newsletter) or any contact information (website, e-mail, phone number).  Which I think is irritating.
  • How to draw attention to your Applications and your Welcome Page.
  • Ways to arrange your Timeline and find things.

Also here are some of the key Facebook Page Timeline dimensions that you need to know:

Cover photo:  850 pixels wide x 315 pixels high

Profile Picture:  180 x 180 pixels and it sizes down to 30 x 30 in the News Feed so don’t make it too complex.

Custom Tab Image for Applications:  111 pixels wide x 84 pixels high

Tabs:  810 pixels wide (formerly 520 pixels wide) so use all that space!
