Facebook: Changing An Application Image

In a recent article, I told you about some basic changes that you could make, to get started with your *new* or *soon-to-be-new* Facebook Page (i.e. Fan Page).

Today I want to talk about how to change an application icon/avatar. Previously, they were, uh, sort of small, and I relied on the text to entice people, with the use of symbols like >> and << (did I just highlight the word, "and!"). Anyway, with the new FB Page, the graphics are that much more important, and really, who is going to buy my album based on a generic FBML icon. I mean, would you? I would think that whoever the musician is, they, uh, may not have finished the album?!

Let’s fix that, shall we?

First thing, is to click on the pull-down-thing to the right, next to apps. It is possible you may be able to skip this step, but I tried and after 15 times of ending up on the application instead of editing the application icon, I decided it is easier to go with this step. Possibly Facebook will change it so that it is not required at some point, but no sweat for the extra millisecond.

I don’t insist (like I could!) that you like the FB Timeline for Pages as much as I do. Hey, you don’t have to like it at all! But, I can be here for you and offer a couple of tips to help you over the hump, eh? So, let’s look at a couple of things you can tweak on your page while you are getting used to it. Ok?

Some of you may be asking *why* anyone would want to hide a friend list. I mean, don’t you want to brag about how many “friends” you have and who you know? Not necessarily. There are two reasons, right off the top of my head that would cause someone to want to hide their friend list…
