There is constantly a new Facebook update and the platform is constantly testing new things that are met with mixed reactions. But, one thing that seems to be evolving positively is the Facebook cover. As one of the very first things page visitors see, this strip of visual content can play a very important role. Keep reading to learn more:
Having a cover photo is the most basic form of adding a visual element to your Facebook page layout. On desktop, the size is 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall, coming down to 640×360 for mobile. You can use this section to put a picture of your location, your staff, a patient testimonial, or something personal. However, this is a valuable space since it’s one of the first things a visitor will see. So, choose wisely and never leave it blank!
It’s no secret that video is the biggest thing on the internet right now. And, the cover video feature is nothing new either. You can upload up to 90 seconds of video, which is plenty of time to showcase your office, the people in it, or anything else that fun and engaging. Just think – if a picture is worth 1,000 words, how much can a video say? Also, the auto-play feature can rack up extra views.
At the end of 2017, we heard rumblings of Facebook releasing a slideshow, or gallery, cover option. Now, this does not refer to the app that creates video slideshows that Facebook once promoted. You can have a click-through photo gallery as your cover. As to know if everyone has this option right now, we can’t say. In fact, Facebook hasn’t released any official statement about it. However, your page may be open to the testing, so keep an eye out for the new option should you want to get in on it!
