Top Sites FB Cover Photo Customization
While Facebook is obviously one of the premiere social networks sites dominating the social media sphere and is loved by all, one of the most frustrating qualities about the site is its lack of customization opportunities.
The dull blue banners and white backgrounds get boring and exhausting after a while. On a site where uniformity is inescapable, how do you stick out?
Aside from your profile pic, the one thing that you’re now able to customize is your cover photo! Since that’s the one shock of creativity on your otherwise bland Facebook wall, you better go hard or go home. And that means that sometimes your amateur photography isn’t enough. That funny picture you found on the internet will not suffice.
You need something better, harder, faster, stronger. You need something, dare I say it, custom. Unless, you’re a Photoshop pro or on a collegiate budget, you might not think you’re capable of graphic design.
Lucky for you, I’ve crept around the internet and compiled a list of sites and services that aid in the design of your perfect Facebook Cover Photo:
