Dimensions you Need to Know for Your Facebook Timeline

Facebook timeline dimensions

Branding your offline experience is important, so why not make branding your online experience a priority too? Facebook’s timelines and cover photos, gave people (and companies) real estate to add a little more personality and individuality to the page without taking away from the the simple, clean interface and uncluttered experience of Facebook that everyone has become accustomed to. Other social media sites like Google plus, Linkedin and Twitter followed the trend and jumped on the timeline cover photo bandwagon allowing you the opportunity to add a larger photo to the top of your page in addition to the profile photo. Since social media sites are indexed in Google and other search engines like Bing and Yahoo, these pages are increasingly valuable to your brand. So it is important that you take advantage of the updating your social media pages with the right timeline cover sizes to capitalize on your already captive audience of fans and the new universe of potential customers who might find you via search…

Facebook Graph Search and Privacy

This week Facebook has started rolling out the new Graph Search for all users. Six months ago, on January 15, 2013, Facebook made an announcement they had promised would be BIG. We all hoped for integration with the newly acquired Instagram brand or perhaps a competitor to Google’s recently acquired Zagat. Maybe even an easier way to manage privacy. But, of course not, this went in a different direction. Facebook introduced Graph Search, a search engine within Facebook that queries all user data you are related to (and often much that you are not directly related to) in your Facebook network of friends and beyond to find things like “Pictures of Catholic Friends who like MegaDeath” or “Coffee Shops my Single Friends like in Seattle (a very extensive list!).” Have you tried Facebook’s new search tool yet and more importantly, have you updated your privacy settings?

Now when we start a new relationship, get engaged, married, you name it, we get asked, “Is it Facebook official?” It’s as if Facebook has defined our relationships and helped connect us with others, which is what it set out to do. Good job Zuckerberg! Facebook was created to help bring people together and build connections. What better way to celebrate Facebooks 10th birthday than to learn some sweet facts about it…
