Back by a popular demand! Now that Facebook has forced all businesses and single users to their new Timeline layout, we have no other choice but to accept it! As a sarcastic as that sentence sounded, I’ve heard many arguments for and against the new layout. Having plastic surgery over and over again really hurts your image. Get it?

I’ve seen friends and family member leave Facebook and jump onto Twitter. These actions were taken because of the privacy issues and constant unwanted updates to the layout. We all face a common challenge, and that is keeping up with our loved ones. Facebook is about to hit 1 billion users, so it makes common sense to stay and fight through the unwanted revisions. Personally I will keep a Facebook profile and force myself to adapt.

At this point and time I will stop rambling and crying about the change. We recently covered the whole transformation in this article: New Facebook Timeline for Brands: Rookie to Pro Guide so feel free to read and absorb the information. If you still have no idea, Facebook Timeline allows you to broadcast story of your life to your friends. With this new introduction, Facebook will now be your digital life scrapbook.

The first and foremost action you should take, is updating you timeline cover. All that free space is silently screaming for you to get creative. Although for some strange reason I thing that people will just use it for advertisement in the future. We all know how strict Facebook gets, but something inside tells me that some clever company will figure out how to take advantage of the timeline cover photo.

In case you want to know more about Facebook Timeline, you can head to its official page at Today we collected awesome examples of Facebook Timeline cover designs. The Facebook Timeline Cover gives you a new way to introduce yourself in a more interesting, and probably creative way rather just relying on your profile photo. Start your creativity juices flowing…!
