The cover is a large bold that is your opening photo or introduction to your page. The opportunities for this are endless. And you can constantly change it.

Millennial Branding Gen-Y & Facebook Study - drilling into the data set.

A new study by Millennial Branding, of 4 million Gen-Y Facebook profiles from Identified.com‘s database of 50 million, uncovers that Gen-Y (ages 18 to 29) is inadvertently using their profiles as an extension of their professional personality, even though they are socializing with family and friends. 64% of Gen-Y fails to list their employer on their profiles, yet they add an average of 16 co-workers each to their ‘friend’ group.
