Create a customized Facebook Cover for your Timeline

Your Facebook Timeline has space for a cover image and with it comes the ability to upload fun and unique cover images. There are many free web apps that allow you to do this. Facebook Cover Maker is a fun app that helps you create your own unique Facebook cover. It works like this - when you access the app you get to choose your gender. Helps in creating a avatar - once created you can then choose your background. So your animated character can have a nice background or backdrop to stand against. In addition to choose male or female you can also choose Mangaboy and penguin. You can be a cute little penguin in character on your Facebook Timeline.

If you want to be a penguin you can add customizations to the penguin as well. You can choose what type of eyes it needs to have and other outer body customizations. All in all a fun way to create your own unique Facebook cover. If you do give it a whirl, please leave a comment with what you think. This is a work in progress and there will be a lot more customizations added in the future.

Facebook Cover Photo Privacy Settings



This post has more to do with what actually happens once you upload a cover photo. Because if you're wondering if the Facebook cover photo has any options for privacy, there are none. You Cover photo is public and that's why when you visit your albums on Facebook you 'Cover Photos' album does not have cog and a drop-down arrow to change privacy settings. The Album only has a globe icon and if you hover over the globe icon you will see a pop-up with the message 'Cover Photos are public'. Facebook Cover Photo Privacy Settings are nil.

This means if you are really concerned about your privacy and you choose a personal photo as a cover pic, be sure that it is visible to everyone. Your Facebook Timeline is like a resume with everything you decide to share with the public visible to everyone. So if there is a pic that you would rather not upload and make visible to the public. Cover Photo is not a place for it, once upload as a cover photo it is visible. Timeline is your new Facebook Profile and when people search for you and if you have Timeline enabled then this is what they see and you cannot make your Cover Photo only visible to a select few friends.

Over the next few weeks Timeline will be rolled out to all users and whether you are ready or not, it is coming to you. This is the new Facebook profile that will be visible to all. So if there is a pic you do not want visible to the public, be sure not to upload it as a cover photo.
