Though creating a Facebook cover isn’t exactly rocket science, unless you have the design acumen (whether that’s with a pen and paper or with a professional design package) to create something yourself you’ll likely find yourself twiddling your thumbs for hours and ends rather than end up with a please to the eye Facebook cover.
