The Profile image of any company exhibits its identity, which is remarkably smaller now. Earlier the profile image of 180X540 size was used to be display its identity, whereas now only 180X180 size image can be allowed for profile image.

With the help of this layout, you can place a bigger image that is far more attractive than the earlier layout of photo strip. The usage of cover page helps the businesses to create a more presentable and respectable profile, which grabs the attention of the visitors easily. One of the most attractive features of the cover image is customization, which assists the businesses in creating professional presentation for branding.
However, there are several important things that you should keep in mind before you place and advertise your cover image on Facebook. Once you decide to place the cover image across the top of your profile page, you are advised to use a larger size image, minimal 810X315. Try to avoid using smaller image as it would not be stretched suitably and may affect a professional presentation.
There are some subject matter and content which cannot be exhibited on cover image such as prices, promotional sale offers, sell offers, contact information and promotional content leading to actions, many others. In addition to this, any remarks to user interface elements, “Share” or “Like” or attributes of Facebook are also unspeakable.
