Facebook Cover Photos. How much do you think of them while uploading one. Do you know that the cover photo of your Facebook Timeline sets the tone of your profile. People get interested in your profile if they find a great cover photo. The cover photo depicts your style and creativity. Moreover the looks of your profile enhances once you choose a nice cover photo. Sometimes we upload our self-shot photos, sometimes we create a design on Photoshop and upload them and sometimes we just upload a downloaded photo created by someone else. A week ago I was reading an article about Facebook cover photos on the website Hongkiat.com and decided to list down the best cover photos of my Facebook friends. The next day I posted an update on Facebook that on this Friendship Day I will list the top 20 most creative cover photos of my Facebook friends on my blog Siteonn, a simple yet inspiring Friendship Day Gift. Out of the 20 friends whose cover photos I have listed here, I do not know 10 of them in person, yet they are my friends as I discuss many things with them, from blogging to studying. There is a nice saying by the English writer Virginia Woolf- “Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends”. On the 2nd of August I spent the whole night on Facebook, not chatting with anyone but selecting the best cover photos of my friends. Initially I sorted out 93 photos from my friends list of 458 and today I am up with the final list. My sister is a bit angry with me as I stripped her cover photo off the final list of 20, but I can’t help it. I had to be impartial to make this list genuine. In order to maintain privacy, I did not link the cover photos to their Facebook profile page. Also, I have created the list in the reverse order so that you do not lose interest.
At the first sight you might find some cover photos to be better than the ones with a high score but I gave the final score out of 100 upon analyzing various aspects of the photo. I checked for the Originality (whether own creation or downloaded), creativity, clarity, whether matching with the profile picture, exposure, looks and another aspect I would like to keep secret. So, here is the list.
