Your current Facebook header is composed of five pictures at the top of your profile page, which are your most recently added photos. You have the option to make this area more decorative by inserting a series of related images so that they form a banner. To do this, you can use a Facebook application that provides you with various ready-made designs and automatically uploads the images to your profile. Use the application of your choice to get a new Facebook header for your page.
Type “header” in the search field at the top of your Facebook home screen and then click the “See More Results for Header” link that appears at the end of the drop-down list.
Click the “Apps” link on the left and review the applications that make a new banner at the top of your Facebook profile. For instance, the My Banner option provides headers in categories such as friendship and love while myFBBanners offers design options in categories such as cars, music and movies.
- Click the “View App” button next to the desired title to go to the application page. Click the “Add to My Page” link on the left side and follow the instructions to install the application.
Use the menus that appear to select and apply your new Facebook header. Using myFBBanners, for example, click a category on the left and then click the “Make My Facebook Banner” button underneath the banner you want. Each application may vary, depending on the one you use.
