Facebook Timeline Launch Weekend Update – Mar31

coffee-shopHappy Facebook Timeline Launch Saturday! Listed below are links to interesting things I found on the web this week: cool tools, great blog articles, memorable Tweets – anything that stuck out to me and I think is worth sharing. I encourage you to check them out for yourself.

Blog Post: The Procrastinator’s Guide to Creating a Cover Image for Your Facebook Timeline – Got a Facebook Page for your business? Freaking out about creating a good-looking cover photo for your Timeline? You’ve probably noticed that striking visual piece in the new Facebook Pages timeline layout — a nearly-screen-width banner image, known as a “Cover.” On March 30, 2012 (yes, that’s tomorrow today), all Facebook Pages will be converted to the timeline layout with the cover photo. If you don’t specify a cover image by March 30, presumably the top of your page will have a blank space where the cover should be.

So if you haven’t pulled it together yet, here’s a last-minute guide for you…

Blog PostGot A Facebook Page? Then You Need This 60-Second Guide To The Facebook Timeline – If you’re a Facebook user, you’ve likely heard of the relatively new design for your profile page. But if you oversee a brand / org page (say, for your classroom or school) then you should know that your page is going to be pushed into the new Timeline mode at the end of the month. So feel free to take the next minute and learn all about the Facebook Timeline. The following infographic from Edelmandigital details what matters, what doesn’t, and what’s different. Are you a fan of the Timeline? Weigh in over at, of course, the Edudemic Facebook page!

Blog PostHow to Get the Right Facebook Timeline Cover Image for Your Business – The switch to Facebook Timeline for business pages is here. The large image at the top of the page is called the Cover Image and it offers a unique opportunity for you to share more about your business. But before you throw up any old photo, you should review the rules that Facebook has in place for this image.
