Most Creative and Funny Facebook Profile Cover Picture Ideas

Facebook Profile Cover Ideas

The moment Facebook announced the new layout of the profile are with their Timeline cover has added spice to that part of Facebook. Facebook had just allowed the creative side of your brain to takeover that space and reflect  yourselves with all grace.

There are now plenty of abundant resources for both Facebook profile pictures and Cover photos alike. But what I believe is that the Facebook profile picture and cover photos should work in harmony to strike the balance and leave off a feeling that is unforgettable.

There are many people who don’t believe that Facebook profile picture and cover photos could ever work in combination, but then there are those who are creating havoc with their creative genius ideas. There are many people who are using their Facebook profile picture in a very clever, creative and funny manner that simply compliments their timeline cover photo.

With the addition of cover photos, much life has been breathed into your Facebook profile picture that deserves more than just a selfie. Both the profile picture and cover photo are just a standalone image, but bark out creativity when combined perfectly.

If you still don’t believe me, let’s take a look at how people are creatively using their Facebook profile picture in accordance with their cover photo, to give that ‘perfect’ profile.

Why so ‘Angry’?

Ohh, No!
