New Facebook Timeline Cover Rules


Revised rules regarding FB cover image:

If you recall when Facebook rolled out the new cover image there were tons of rules to adhere to, but this week, these rules have changed. So what are the new rules:

  1. We still have restriction cannot have more than 20% of text in the image. Tool
  2. All other rules pretty much gone, for example, CTAs (Call to Action can be put on), pricing allowed, URL to links, Contact info all OK
  3. Covers cannot be deceptive, misleading or infringe on anybody’s copyright.

More flexibility for marketing, but don’t push your fans off.
