We’ve seen several websites of free Facebook Timeline cover photos. These websites are truly awesome and share their custom made photos for free, with only one thing in return: their logo or link on your cover photo.

However, sometimes or most of the times we feel more like creating our own timeline covers as we feel that the pre-made ones aren’t really based on our imagination and not necessarily representing our colorful personalities.

There are several tools for awesome Facebook timeline covers on the internet and most of these are free and great. After all of course it’s free, they get their revenue from a lot of popularity and thus advertisements put on their pages pay off excellently.

Get inspired by the creativity of others before choosing the tools

Some Facebook users used their creativity as tools for awesome Facebook timeline covers. And guess what the result is?

It turned out to be perfectly funny and attractive! One of the popular options in creating these custom covers with tricks as simple as a desktop screenshot is the usage of other social media webpages (as screenshot – timeline cover picture only) so it confuses you while it’s actually only an image and the other social media is not there, it’s still Facebook. However, it can get you a lot of popularity for being awesome!

Other choices as possible Facebook Timeline Covers which are “handmade” are:

  • Some sort of mobile phone screen or iPad layout
  • A picture of you actually holding your profile picture
  • Some sort of creative, effect-full hipster cover
  • Using cartoons to include your picture in
  • Using pictures of famous scenes/movie casts
  • Any other creativity

Facebook now seems to force its own will on every single user, whether we like it or not. As of August 2012, Facebook Timeline is mandatory and there is no Facebook option or setting to go back to the older design.

You see, the problem does not solely rely on the design or functionality of the timeline – I can honestly say it’s well designed, creative and fully functional. Problems come from what Facebook users currently feel like and how they react to this forced change. It’s like living in a democracy and then realizing it’s all turning into dictatorship. I guess it wouldn’t have affected many people if Facebook would’ve left a simple option to turn off the timeline, just for the sake of the Facebook users who still claim that the older design was a lot better and far more accessible.

Of course it wasn’t such a great idea, not even close to a good idea from Mark Zuckerberg to give users a time bomb which goes off anyway. I mean, why do we all need the timeline? Why couldn’t there be some designs, variations? The essence of the Facebook algorithms and specific things would still be the same. It would simply be like adding a skin to Winamp – functionality remains while looks change. However, from an unknown reason, Zuckerberg did not see this side of the story.

Facebook has somehow found magical ways for itself to be un-liked. The main problem that I fear of is that if we had a survey to conduct on all present and former Facebook users to ask them if they are satisfied with Facebook overall or not, the high percentage would draw to not. The most recent Facebook trick happened to mess with the Facebook e-mails.

Now, we may wonder how that is possible, since a couple of months ago things were like we are allowed to freely activate our Facebook e-mails if we want to. It was really nice at first look: having your @Facebook emails within your Facebook messages and being able to customize that address one time to an address which was still available. But what do we get now? All of the sudden, Facebook unannounced as always, forced us to have our Facebook emails. Well, we might overlook this, since if we don’t use that address, it doesn’t matter, and if we used it, it was already set.

Recently Facebook changed a lot and as things rise and fall, we can’t really conclude whether it was a positive change or a negative one. Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to enter the stock and earn money was probably good in the beginning but now he’s facing severe problems, since Facebook actions dropped tremendously over the last weeks and days. Why is this happening? It’s happening most probably because it was overrated in the first place.

The vote focuses on the recent Facebook privacy policy changes which took place before Facebook was entered to the stock. The voting page is at the following address:

facebook timeline voting

There’s still time until the voting ends and it’s important for every user to make their choices. As Facebook officials announced, the vote only becomes valid if at least one third of the Facebook users will get into voting. If not, the changes are going to be applied anyways. One week of total voting time on the other hand is just enough for people to realize its importance and do something good.

Recently there has been a great amount of chaos on the stock market as the people who invested their money into Facebook actions accused the Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg and the stock agencies of cheating and greed. Maybe the accusations were real and may they weren’t but one thing is for sure: Zuckerberg put some thought again into what his next step should be and he figured to do a Facebook timeline redesign. We must mention that his idea did show the needed success as the Facebook actions increased by more than 3% already!

While the controversy around the “older” new timeline didn’t end yet, here we go again with a new Facebook timeline redesign. Of course, criticisms appeared from the very first couple of minutes saying that this action will annoy Facebook users once again and some of them would feel motivated enough to leave Facebook and delete their profiles. However, since together with the thousand critics we’ve read lately we somehow accepted the timeline, there are high chances of accepting the newer version as well and the founder, Mark Zuckerberg, is aware of the love we share for his network and we know he uses this information into his own favor, but let’s face it: wouldn’t we do the same if we ran a business of our own?

What does the Facebook timeline redesign bring up again?

One might think that the current version would really need no more changes whatsoever. Maybe this time the changes are quite useful, since some of the information moved on to the cover photo. Okay, so let’s explain this action in details. Before, you were able to see your location, relationship status, working place right below the timeline cover.

Lately we have witnessed major changes and unexpected actions and decisions of the Facebook leader and owner, Mark Zuckerberg. Among some probably instable or bad decisions like Facebook Timeline, Zuckerberg decided that Facebook should provide an option to share organs, meant to save people who are in desperate need of such an operation.

Actually what is the story behind the decision? Facts of how people live in the United States and how badly they are affected by the unavailability of donated organs was a major influence but Zuckerberg also had some discussions with his girlfriend how goes to college and intends to become a doctor. More or less, besides being influenced or not, the Facebook option is welcome to everyone.

It is common that young people die due to unexpected accidents and situations. Death, especially when not caused by a long fight with a fatal disease, may be caused by the following factors at younger people:

  • work excess – the need of money may cause you not to know when to stop and your body simply fails to handle the situation
  • car accident – very frequent
