When It Comes to Facebook, Should You Be “Tall”?

divider image for this post

Unlike MySpace, Facebook doesn’t let you do much to customize your fan page. A curse and a blessing, some might say. No outrageously gross and distracting layouts and graphics, but it is hard to stand out as well.

A simple, yet effective, tool I have seen pop up is the “tall” fan page or profile image. True, the width limit for that image is only 200px. But the height, as far as I can tell, can be as much as 600px. Since most images you see are square, you can get up to 3x the image area to work with to help brand your page and make visitors feel right at home.

I’m not saying that this is the best or only way to go, but you’ve gotta admit, some of these fan pages look pretty sharp. Here are some examples:

As you can see, I too felt inspired and redesigned the SlopeFillers fan page image as well :)

UPDATE: Here’s a few more I missed or were recently changed…

About Gregg & SlopeFillers
I've had more first-time visitors lately, so adding a quick "about" section. I started SlopeFillers in 2010 with the simple goal of sharing great resort marketing strategies. Today I run marketing for resort ecommerce and CRM provider Inntopia, my home mountain is the lovely Nordic Valley, and my favorite marketing campaign remains the Ski Utah TV show that sold me on skiing as a kid in the 90s.
