Adding a cover to your Facebook photo albums

Anytime you upload a photo to Facebook, by default, your photo you just uploaded is automatically set as the cover photo for your Facebook photo album. While this is great that they do this automatically, sometimes you just want to choose your own cover photo for your photo album that best represents the group of photos.

Here’s how you can add a cover to your Facebook photo albums on both your Facebook Page as well as your Facebook Profile.

For those of you who want to skip the 5 simple steps, I’ve put together a video on how to add a cover to your Facebook photo albums.

    This is no longer working for many users like myself. The option is there, but it’s dead. Clicking it does nothing. I’ve tried with Safari, Chrome, Firefox (all Mac); even Internet Explorer (Windows). Nothing works.

    Sadly as more time passes, the glitches on Facebook’s website are becoming obscene to the nth degree. Not a week goes by that I don’t run into some lame bug that impedes my ability to use their website… or worse provide the social media tools my clients have come to rely on when publishing articles via the Facebook website. Sad, sad, sad.

    Really makes you wonder whose doing the beta testing and upgrade release monitoring over there at Fb Hq?
