What You’ll Need:
- New Cover Image
This is the large image at the top of the page and measures 851×315 pixels in size.
THERE ARE RESTRICTIONS…. Your Cover Image MAY NOT include the following….
i. Price or purchase information, such as “40 percent off” or “Download it at our website.”
ii. Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page’s About section.
iii. References to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site features.
iv. Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends.”
- New Profile Image
Must be square – such as 180×180 pixels in size. Recommended images include your own picture or your company/business logo.
- Page/Tab Images
Pages/Tabs which used to be down the left side of the page (under your profile image) will now be under the Cover Image. You will have the ability to re-order the pages and add a image (measureing 111×74 pixels in size) specific for each page.There are exceptions such as the Photos tab (which will always show the last uploaded image and will always be in the first position) and the Likes count tab (which will always show the number of LIKES your page has). Most other Pages/Tabs can be assigned an image to be shown in the block on your Wall page.

It is still not known for sure if the “Fan Gating” process (the process where a page’s content changes after the LIKE button has been clicked) will still be available or not. However we do have a solution that will still give your pagethe “Fan Gating” functionality. This requires a slight change to your custom page file.
UPDATE: We’re expecting “Fan Gating” to continue working properly on Timeline. Be advised that since your Fan Page is on Facebook’s environment, the ultimate functionality and rules thereof are completely reliant on Facebook, what they allow, and their Terms of Service.
Drop us an email and let us know how we can help you. Whether it’s updating your Page to Timeline, creating Cover and profile images, or building a new custom page (with Fan Gating!) for your Fan Page area, we’re here to help!
