Cover Photo for Facebook Mobile Fan Pages

Cover photo is the most appealing thing about Timeline. A little while back all the Facebook pages got shifted to Timeline look with option of adding a cover pic to promote their brand name to their users. Though this feature was not welcomed to fan pages , but slowly Timeline kind of suits to Fan pages. Now Facebook rolled out cover photo for Facebook mobile fan pages as well. This will help the mobile users to add cover to their fan page on mobile and thus promoting their brand name.

P.S : Page owners should be aware that designs that work on desktop may not work on mobile devices.
