Since the introduction of the Facebook timeline, people had controversy in their opinions as they grouped in two camps: the one that found the timeline innovative and as a great new feature and the others saying that the old Facebook was a lot better and this feels like unworthy of Facebook.
Well, to be honest, people sometimes refuse to accept the new only because they were used to the old. We can’t clearly affirm that the timeline would get us in bad position. What we can know for certain is that the Facebook timeline presents our social reality in a new and amazing way. Our posts are grouped by months and as we are scrolling down the profile page, older and older posts are revealed.
Features such as adding friends or uploading any pictures to our albums now also show a lot more clearly. Fonts are easier to read and the center line, the timeline itself having posts and updates on both the left and the right sides is good as it’s a lot easier to review personal activity or the activity of our friends.
The cool thing about the new timeline is the timeline banner, which appears on the top of the page representing your profile. You can get your already uploaded pictures to appear on your Facebook timeline banner but some great websites offer their banners for free and it is easy to pick the one you like.
The only thing when using banners that others have made is that they will have a short copyright-like text on the banner. One of these websites is FacebookTimelineBanner.com.
Thumbnails of the available banners are presented throughout several pages so that you can choose the one best representing your feelings and profile.
Let’s choose a banner, for instance: http://facebooktimelinebanner.com/?p=7929
This is how the actual banner looks like and then we also have (right below the banner) instructions on how one can install this banner.
The actions are simple: you download the cover, upload it to Facebook and it’s changed. You can choose to spread the word and Like the Facebook page of the website who gave you the cover. With these likes their services will remain free while Facebook users will make them popular.
FacebookTimelineBanner.com also has its timeline banners grouped into categories so that you can choose a lot easier if you have targeted a theme with these covers you intend to use.
For a business/company, the Facebook timeline banner can bring benefits. Why? Large images, visual memory of customers will always be the best advertisement method. Smartly designing the timeline banner is like having a free but effective advertisement via your Facebook page. The timeline itself will also professionally present the past and the present of a business activity.
As people and local businesses, everyone can personalize their Facebook profile pages with amazing timeline banners. The only thing you have to keep in mind is to have a great, positive visual impact which truly represents your personality or the spirit of your business. If pre-designed Facebook timeline banners seem inappropriate, you can use any design and any picture you’d enjoy to have as your timeline banner.
