The Timeline is not all bad, though. In fact, it offers many great features that early adapters have been raving about.

The Facebook cover, which is the most unique part of the Timeline, consists of a large photo that sits a-top your profile page. This photo can be anything you’d like, from a picture you’ve personally taken, to a pre – made design made by various “Facebook cover” supplying websites.
You can change this as often as you’d like and Facebook will even store all uploaded covers into a photo album for you. For those who don’t know how to change their cover, it’s actually quite easy. Simply hover over the cover area until you see a drop down menu appear. Once it appears, click the menu and chose the “upload cover” option. If you’re using a pre – made cover you’ve found from a website, check to see if the site provides an option to automatically upload the cover to your covers’ album. In this case, you’ll want to return to Facebook, select the “Choose from photos” option, and click the recently uploaded cover image.
The key, when using the Timeline profile, is to be creative. Use this space to express your personality and show a side of you that your Facebook friends haven’t seen before. But keep in mind, this is a public photo that cannot be hide or visible to a select few. Be cautious, as everyone (including existing and potential employers) may see this image. When choosing your cover, be sure not to pick one that may offend friends, family, or anyone else that may view your profile. It’s recommended that you think past your typical “out partying” photo.
Let’s face it, everything you do on Facebook is to show off your life and who you are. Use your cover photo as a way to show off a hobby you’re interested in, a dream car you’ve always wanted, or even to show support for your hometown sport’s team. Your Facebook cover can become a great conversation starter between new and existing friends.
