Facebook For Business Tip #6: Profile Image “Billboards”


The profile image on your brand’s Facebook Page is valuable real estate. Take advantage of that. Whether it’s a Facebook contest you’re hosting or an off-Facebook marketing effort you want to make your Facebook fans aware of, turn your profile image into a “billboard” display.
