How to Use Photos to Customize your Facebook Fan Page
It doesn’t have to take you weeks or thousands of dollars to customize your fan page.
If you’re a bit of a DIY’er, there are a few easy ways you can make your page stand out from the crowd, simply using images.
Why Should I Customize My Fan Page?
Here is the main reason I would highly recommend jazzing up your page with images:
Whether you realize it or not, your fan page actually contains some pretty valuable marketing space.
A good portion of your page can actually be used for photos, so why not take advantage of that for branding?
Spicing up your page with images not only conveys that you actually care about your page, but making it visually interesting may mean visitors stay on your page longer and interact more.

- 3. In the same way as #2, use your profile picture to it’s full potential. Instead of using a small photo, why not use this valuable branding space to it’s full potential?While the width of your image has to be 200px, stretching it out to a length of around 600px gives you lots of room to get your message across.Go clean and simple:
