by Elaina

This week, Facebook announced that they are starting to roll out the timeline format to brand pages, with a mandatory change over on March 30th. This week on Favorite Finds Friday, I’m highlighting news and sites related to this change:

Since this change was only officially announced this week, not too many nonprofits and small businesses have changed over yet, but some have started the transition. Here are my favorites so far:

  • LoveIsRespect: National Teen Dating Abuse Hotline – I love their cover design, but (as noted in one of the blog posts above) it actually violates the new Terms of Use for Pages.
  • The Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) – They chose a cover picture to promote their upcoming conference – a great way to show the potential of your cover as a marketing tool.
  • J Campbell Social Marketing – I absolutely adore this cover image. As a consultant working with nonprofits on social marketing, the image of a conductor bringing the different media together into a symphony resonates well.
  • Elaina Buzzell – Sorry for a bit of shameless self-promotion, but I just launched my own Facebook page this week. I chose to go with a landscape panorama that I took on a road-trip this fall – simple and shows a bit of my personality.
