30 Examples of Creative Facebook Timeline Covers

While Facebook’s changes and re-designs always bring some criticism from users, one thing that this year’s move to timeline photos accomplished was to allow users the opportunity to create something unique. Whether you are using Facebook for personal purposes or whether you manage a Facebook fan page for a business, if you want to create a branded profile that captures the attention of visitors, the timeline photo can help.

In this post we’ll showcase 30 examples of Facebook users and pages that are making creative use of the timeline photo

    Unfortunately, Facebook keeps changing the sizes of elements and also their layout, so none of these covers will be relevant in about a month.

  • Grant, August 7, 2012

    It looks like a few of those covers violate the rules on calls to action too. How heavily is Facebook enforcing that?

  • Tarful, August 8, 2012

    Amazing list!

    You can see ours at http://www.facebook.com/tarful

    Hope you like it too! :)

  • A good list (even some are so little bit old..) in any case..this is my page: https://www.facebook.com/aledesign.it
    I hope we like it!!!!

    A lot of people seem to use that Futurama head-on-the-shelf-idea, I wonder were it originated from… anyway, as you said, people are making the most out of the timeline design which is a good thing, I guess. But as was already mentioned, as long as Facebook keeps changing sizes, I’m not really motivated to create a cover for myself at this very moment

    Tim and George,
    The changes that Facebook makes is definitely something to consider. But if you have the timeline photo in a layered PSD you can usually make those changes very easily.

    Grant,
    I’ve seen a number of Facebook users and pages that seem to violate the terms, so I really don’t know how strict FB is at enforcing those rules. I guess with so many millions of users things slip through the cracks. I wouldn’t recommend violating the terms for business pages.

    Got to love the ET one, really creative ideas.

  • louann, August 10, 2012

    These are great!! Gives me some great ideas for my daughter’s page.

  • Garry Conn, August 13, 2012

    Awesome… I love the first one. That happens to me all the time in Photoshop. I couldn’t help but update my cover to this one… but just like Tim said, give it another month or so and all the sizes will change again.

  • Krister Nielsen, August 13, 2012

    I re-made my Facebook Cover a few months ago from the 2011 version to 2012… check out them both out in this image and maybe include in your list if you like them?

    I think that it is a pretty good list, certainly illustrates what you can do with your cover, if you feel incline,
    makes me want to change mine! :)
