20 Awesome Facebook Cover Photos

I switched on the Television last night very briefly and I can now see why Facebook is so popular!

There was nothing to watch.

Now I don’t have cable or Satellite TV, so that was maybe part of the problem,  but there is a method in my madness…it minimizes the temptation to sit in front of the “idiot box” and so allows me more time for reading and blogging.

Has Self Expression become the New Entertainment?

As I searched Facebook for these images I was reminded of the quote by Arianna Huffington,

self expression has  become the new form of entertainment” and that the popularity of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube is evidence of this phenomenon.

A large part of this self expression is visual and the popularity of photos and images that are shared in their millions every day is evidence of the compelling power of well crafted high definition images and beautiful photos.

The New Facebook Timeline for Pages

This redesign is recognition of the increasing role that images are playing on the “visual social web” and you only have to witness the growth of Pinterest and Instagram to see this playing out.

Everyone has a camera in their pocket or bag these days as smart phones now have them as a standard feature. Add to this the ease of posting those photos to Facebook or Twitter with a few clicks and the web is awash with images from Bondi to Bulgaria.

The new Facebook timeline for pages has provided a bigger canvas for business and organisations to exhibit the essence of their brand.

I hope some of these images below may inspire you to consider what you publish as your cover image for your new Facebook page.

    Baskin Robbins.. YUM! Check out Nancy Pelosi’s page, regardless if one agrees with her political positions, must admit that’s a wicked cover photo.  http://www.facebook.com/NancyPelosi

    These are excellent Facebook cover photos! Thank you for compiling these examples for us.  It’s amazing how some of them are quite simple too.

    These are fun! Thanks for sharing. My fav is the Skittles.

    I think it works well and required nothing special, just placement of an image I already had–the cover of my book.

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Thanks for dropping in and It was fun putting it together :)

    Thanks for the question Linda. Number 20 is quite small. A follow up post on great cover photos from small biz might be a good idea!
    Watch this space :)

    Louis Vuitton’s is the best imho.  Blackberry’s is evocative.  Who doesn’t love a good food close-up (Baskin Robbin’s)…foodie porn.  Some of the others just look like billboards.  Big thumbs up on the Pelosi site.  Be clever!  (They are really saying something there.)
    This is a small business but it looks as good as some of those ‘big guys’:

    (There’s an extra nice message there, too.  Not just product, product, product.  Amazing what you can ‘say’ with the right photo.)

    Why not look beyond the brands with millions of dollars in their advertising budgets who can afford the photographers and editors to create such cover images.

    Sprite is phenomenal. If you can incorporate the profile picture into your cover photo that smoothly, it looks awesome. I believe any company capable of doing this, should, and would be missing out if they didn’t!

    I love MACs design! Very simple but still awesome.

  • siva

    hi jennifer

  • http://twitter.com/PublicityHound Joan Stewart

    Almost all of these are big brands that can easily afford pricey graphic artists. I’m much more impressed with kick-butt Facebook cover photos from small businesses that can barely afford to pay the electric bill.

    This page blew my mind. Monster Energy is my favourite.

    Most of these are big and popular companies, they check precisely care about their company profiles and updates. So we should follow these companies but keep in mind they hire pro graphic designers to create these attractive Facebook covers but we can also impress our customers or friends by using such type of awesome cover pictures.
