Often the desire for a new timeline cover motivates you to search the internet on your quest for a cover that is suitable to your needs; you’ll be looking for a Facebook timeline cover that successfully captures your personal as well as your current mood.
In fact, very few of us actually have the desire or disposition to put together a timeline cover ourselves in a graphical package. Whether conscious or not, we know that Googling and making selections from a range of Facebook covers will be far easier than making one ourselves.
But what if it was easy to make a Facebook timeline cover? Would people prefer to make up their own Facebook timeline cover then? This is the question posed by a new tool called Make a Cover.
The easiest way in which to describe Make a Cover is that of a Facebook cover maker program, you make up Facebook timeline covers that are automatically in the correct size with this program.
The way in which you do this is to take your pick from a variety of digital personas, once you’ve chosen your digital persona you then pick from a wardrobe of layers that you can add to your persona. It is this digital persona that forms the basis of the customized timeline cover for Facebook.
The digital personas from which you can choose from include a manga girl and guy, penguin, devil, doll, cowboy and superhero. In particular, I like the Manga guy as a character.
Once you have selected the arrangement that you most prefer for the composition of your Facebook cover, it can be applied to your timeline by clicking a button. It’s as easy as that.
I found the layers and elements for the Facebook covers as professionally designed as the digital personas themselves. However, for some personas I felt that the Facebook cover maker would be better served by allowing the customization of colour, size as well as being able to edit the individual layer elements. But, then again, this would add to the complexity of the Facebook cover maker that the developer is clearly trying to avoid.
To draw this article to a close, Make a Cover for Facebook is a rather good way in which to obtain a premade cover for your timeline. Creating a cover is a little more involved than the alternative of simply downloading a Facebook timeline cover off the internet, but you do feel a sense of accomplishment over assembling a Facebook cover design that took you a matter of minutes.
