Stay On top Of Your Social Networking Sites….
I finally decided to update my Facebook Timeline Fanpage by creating some new photo images and getting familiarize with the new features. I’m guilty I waited till the end. But I got it done. I prefer the old version, but it’s not like we as users have an option. I don’t think I am alone out there, I see a lot of profiles and fanpages sitting on the old style pages and if they switched over to the new Timeline version they are not utilizing the image features at all.
Maybe most folks are unfamiliar how to use the new timeline version or skeptical what images to add. So later in my post I will briefly touch on how to add an image to your cover photo, profile picture thumbnail and the Icon Apps image to make your page stand out.
Create A Brand With Your Layout Timeline
With the new Timeline layout, a photo image maybe everything to brand who you are or what you’re representing. I won’t profess to be a professional graphic designer, but some things do come natural to me and I like to keep it simple to share with others. First of all, if you have access to a graphic editing tool like Photoshop, gimp, Pixlr, there are tons of other graphic editing tools to use. The one I like to use is Pixlr, because it’s a simple graphic software tool and I like the fact that I don’t have to download the software to my computer. I only save the photo images I create onto my computer.
Just a side note: Remember your images need a host and it may have to be stored on your own computer or in your WordPress file, so don’t delete the saved photo files you may delete your images from where you’re displaying it at.
I have to say, I was apprehensive at first not sure where to start with my fanpage timeline updates, so I decided to start with my photo image brands. Yes.. I said Brands! With the new changes landing pages will no longer be the first thing you see but a cover photo image will take the place of a landing page to get the viewers attention. So be creative with your cover photo image and stay within the guidelines with what facebook request of us, and it keeps them off your back.
Okay, let’s get down to business.
