Post Objective: To teach (anyone who wants to know) how to create a customized facebook timeline cover photo using Picnik.com.
If you’re on facebook, then you’ve probably noticed that some of your friends’ profile pages look a bit different! There is a new app called Timeline that allows you to see your own “wall” in a completely different format. I like it because you can easily go back in time and see everything you have ever posted on your facebook wall. Some people don’t like it for a variety of reasons. If you’re one of those, just skip this post . (As of now, Timeline doesn’t work for facebook pages and can only be implemented on your personal page.)
Please watch the video if you’d like to learn how to create your own customized timeline cover photo (in less than 10 minutes). For best viewing, make sure you click on the “full screen” option in the bottom right corner. If for some reason you don’t see the video below, please click here to watch.
**Edited to add: Just learned from readers that the “photobasket” option only shows up in the premium version of Picnik. If you’re using the free version, you won’t be able to add photos once your collage is created. I’m so sorry! I would recommend creating it in Picassa which is free.

Update: Picnik is closing so all Premium features are open to everyone. You should be able to create your coverphoto with no problem. Also, if you want to create it using Picasa please click here for that tutorial.
