Change Your Facebook Avatar To A Banner

A few days ago, I found myself on a Facebook fan page with a huge banner going down the side of it, instead of the usual small avatar picture. It looked so great that I had to ask how she accomplished it.

Turns out, Facebook won't crop images that are 200wide x 600 long! That is it, nothing tricky to it.

Try it out, it is a  lot of space to market yourself and really personalize your Facebook page. Check mine out at:

I have tried using the Facebook page banner before, and it was really a huge space you could use to market your business. But when Facebook invented the cover photo, I found it to be more useful. The cover photo offers a more spacious venue to advertise your business name. ->Pearlie Cybart
