How to Change Facebook’s Group Cover Photo
So you may have noticed that Facebook rolled out a new “Cover Photo” option for their Groups.
If you go into your group, you’ll notice that there is a strip of photos of some of your group members, as such:
BUT, if you want to change it, you might be wondering how. It’s pretty easy – here’s how you do it.
First, make sure you’re an Admin of the group. If not – sorry, you’re out of luck for now.
Next, hover your mouse over the picture on the right:
See that box on the right? That’s what you want to click:
Next, choose your file. You’ll want the picture to be 805 x 200 pixels, but be careful not to put important info in the bottom strip of the picture. The bottom 30 pixels or so get “covered” by the opaque bar. So, choose your picture and upload it:
Don’t worry, if your picture is too big, you can also drag it around right in the image editor. Then click on “Save Changes”
You’re done! Pretty straightforward once you find that hidden little box at the beginning.
Hope this helps – it probably won’t be too different when Facebook rolls out Cover Photos for Pages. If you make a good creative cover photo, let me know!
