Ok I have create and added a facebook cover now:
And it looks quite nice. However, what the heck is it for?
It takes up a lot of real estate in the browser view with a big screen laptop. Even worse with a netbook or a mobile device. However, I have not found any way to introduce interactivity for the user with my cover. Without it, it is useless.
Furthermore, how many times does someone look at this page of another user? I do most of my facebook interaction from the facebook homepage using my newsfeed and the ticker.
Does anybody have any suggestion how the cover and the timeline make sense?
