Here You’ll Find Great Facebook Timeline for Brand Pages Examples
Update: be sure to read our new post about 23 cool examples of Facebook Page cover photos!
Facebook timeline for brand pages are officially live. Here’s how to enable them. A lot of brands have already upgraded to Facebook timeline and this is why I have gathered a few good examples of Facebook timeline different elements and how businesses are using them. Don’t forget that on March 30th you will be forced to switch to timeline.
Before we get started though, here are two things you must know about cover photos:
1. When choosing your cover photo it is important to follow Facebook’s guideline. Your cover photo cannot include:
A. Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”.
B. Contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that should go in your Page’s “About” section.
C. References to Facebook features or actions, such as “Like” or “Share” or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features.
D. Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”.
Covers must not be false, deceptive or misleading, and must not infringe on third parties’ intellectual property. (Source)
2. Cover photo measurements are:

Red Bull’s cover photo looks very neat!
