Why You Need to Check Your FB Cover Image Now

Jun 03, 2021

Have You Checked Your FB Cover Image Lately?


When it comes to Facebook, most local business owners want to log on, get the job done, and continue with their day. 

Unfortunately, it's never easy when the rules are constantly changing.  There's always something new to learn or master in order to post, share or advertise.  

This month is no exception.  Facebook has made some changes (again) that can have a big impact on local business pages. 

For unknown reasons, all video cover images on Facebook have turned into still images.  If you uploaded a video to show off your business to page visitors, it will now display as a thumbnail image from some portion of your video.  

If you haven't checked in on your page in a while, you'll want to take a look now.  Some videos are displaying blurry or strange thumbnail images that might be causing confusion for your customers or muddying your overall branding. 

If you're happy with the image that's displaying, then there's nothing else you need to do right now.  But if not, you'll want to upload a new image as quickly as you can.  

Nobody currently knows if video covers will be returning to Facebook (we sure hope they will - hint, hint).  But for now, it pays to check your business page regularly, and be sure to view it as a visitor to confirm you're putting your best foot forward.
