Facebook Cover New Rules!

New Facebook Cover Rules!

Facebook Cover Photos Can Now Include Calls to Action!

This is the biggest and most exciting change for businesses on Facebook. Since the day Timeline was released, Facebook has had rules against businesses having any form of call-to-action on a cover photo. As of late this rule has officially been dropped. Facebook has not made an obvious announcement about this, so unless you’ve checked in with Facebook guidelines lately, or heard someone else talking about this, you may have missed this exciting change.

The only rule that still stands is that the text in a Facebook Cover photo cannot exceed 20 percent. 

Here are some things that businesses can now include in their cover photos:

– price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it on website.com”;
– contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that can also go in your Page’s “About” section;
– references to Facebook features or actions, such as “Like” or “Share” or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features; or
– calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends.”
