  1. User can now also collect more facebook pages likes by adding cover photos that point to facebook like button , and we have collected all those facebook cover pages .This will really help businees

    • Hi Tarun, I have to agree, putting a “like me” message seems like it would be a good use of the new cover photo area, but that is now a violation of Facebook’s terms and should not be attempted on a page that someone wants to not have shut down. Thanks for taking the time to comment though!

  2. Probably the best cover photo for getting new likes would be a photo that directs the viewer’s eye to a point right above the “Like” button. What do you think?

    • Yes, that would seem to be the logical choice, however specifically asking for the “like” is not allowed by Facebook. So do be careful with how you direct the viewer’s eye.

  3. Considering those ‘likes’ are such a vital element of the Facebook page experience for Businesses, I think making the shift and relocating them to the top of the page was a nessecary adjustment and I’m pleased to see that it’s been addressed. Previously, it was a little too much effort, in my opinion, to trace downward and find that button to click.

  4. It does sound a little silly in theory – people being too lazy to ‘scroll down’ to find something on a webpage. In practice, however, it really does make the world of difference. When you imagine how vast the internet is and franatic the pace of searching is when it comes to the average user, things needs to be accessable immediately, if not sooner. Making this adjustment was a sage move and while simple, should make a significant difference regarding clicks-per-visitor.
