A recently added feature on Sendible’s social media management dashboard is the ability to update the cover photo of your Facebook page from within the management console.
In this post, we’ll take you step by step through the process of setting up and then updating the page’s cover photo. To begin with our Facebook page doesn’t have a cover photo, although if it did we would just be updating it.
Step 1: Add your Facebook Cover Photo service
a) Open the Add/Edit Services tab, and from within the Add Service pane, open the Photos tab.
b) Next, choose Facebook Cover Photo by clicking Add. If you’re not already logged into Facebook, you’ll be given the opportunity to.
c) Now, choose the Facebook Page you want to use from the list of those you administer and click Save Settings.
d) Click OK when the pop up shows.
e) You should now see the new service in My Services.
Step 2: Update your Cover Photo
a) With the service now configured, simply go to Message Box to compose a new message. Choose the Facebook Cover Photo from the list of message types.
b) Click Photo or File.
c) Choose the image for your cover photo.
d) Click Subject or Title and enter a name for your photo.
e) Finally, Hit Send.
3. Check your Facebook page (optional)
a) Your Facebook Cover Photo should now be updated!
If you haven’t already done so, add your Facebook and Twitter accounts from within Add/Edit Services. Once you’ve added your social media accounts, you can schedule your posts to your saved services.
