The new Facebook Timeline has been launched and, by now, you have probably seen it on most of your friend’s profiles. Unlike the previous Facebook setup, the new timeline allows your friends to quickly and easily jump back and forth between events from different times and events in your life that have been placed in chronological order. While the new Facebook Timeline has received mixed reviews, a growing number of users are starting to realize the new opportunities the revised format has to offer. One of the most attractive benefits of the new Timeline format is the development of the Facebook Cover feature.
With the new Facebook Cover feature, you can add another element to your e-marketing campaign by linking your profile picture to the upper banner with the help of QR codes. The Facebook Cover can also be used with advertising campaigns or to help with taking social action, such as “The Anti-Drugs Timeline” launched by the Israel Anti Drug Authority. Here are just a few great examples of how you can creatively change your Facebook profile in order to take full advantage of the new Cover feature.
