How to Customize Your Facebook Page

How to Customize Your Facebook Page | She Turned Her Dreams Into Plans

Do you want to know how to customize your Facebook Page to make it look attractive, professional and awesome? Here are some things that I learned when I was working on mine. If you want to see what mine looks like check it out here!

There are basically three sections of your Facebook Page that you should focus on: the profile picture, cover photo and your apps section. 

1. Profile Picture: Best size = 180x180 pixels. I would recommend using a square image here for best results. If your logo isn't already square, consider making a square version for this. Otherwise it will end up being cropped and part of it won't show or it might look fuzzy from Facebook scaling it. Instead of a logo I just used a regular photo of myself here. 

2. Cover Photo: 851x315 pixels. This is the very first thing people will see when they go to your page so make sure it is kept up to date and reflects your style. I would avoid enlarging an image for this. use one that is already this big or it will appear grainy and blurry. You can add text to this image as well if you like. Facebook guidelines say that up to 20% of the cover photo can be text.

3. Your Apps: 74x111 pixels. You can easily customize the images that come with your apps that you have installed on your page to make them match everything else. Create a graphic that is the specified size and save it. Then click on the down arrow next to your row of apps. 

Hover over the app you would like to change and click on the pencil icon that appears in the top right corner. Click "Edit Settings" on the menu that appears. 

A pop-up window will show up on top of your Facebook Page. Click on the "Change" link next to "Customize Tab Image."

A new page will open and you will need to hover over the app image and click "edit." Choose your file from your computer and save it!

Check back and see how your new lovely Facebook Page looks. Do you have any other tips or suggestions for customizing a Facebook Page? Let me know in the comments!
