Creating a Facebook Group Header Graphic
It's back and better than ever: fall, that is! Though we may feel sad to say farewell to summer, with the cooler weather comes something we all enjoy —fall television premieres. So, how can you take your excitement and share it with all your friends? By styling your Facebook or Pinterest group to match your favorite show, complete with all its premiere information.
Using BeFunky’s Designer Toolset, you can put together a fun premiere page.
1. Log In
After finding out what pertinent information you’ll need for your graphic (network, premiere date, time), log in to BeFunky, choosing Designer to begin your header.
2. Pick A Social Media Outlet
Choose Social Media Headers, specifically for Facebook.
3. Choose Your Template
Pick from various templates to easily create your graphic.
4. Upload Your Photo
Upload the photo you’d like to use for your header. For my purposes, I’ve chosen the show Bones on Fox.
5. Edit Your Image
Edit your photo, if necessary. Headers are a specific shape for most social media sites, of a more rectangular nature. If your photo doesn’t fit exactly, you can stretch it to fit, or you can create background around it, which is what I’ll be doing.
6. Add Informational Text
Add text to your graphic, focusing on important info for your show’s premiere. I’ve chosen to keep the font and color similar to that of the Bones page on Fox’s website.
7. Do Color Adjustments
Adjust the background color, if necessary, to match the photo.
8. Make It Pretty
Add design elements to your header, if you so desire. I’m adding a basic line to create some visual interest, but not overwhelm the text.
9. Save It
Once the header is looking how you’d like it, click on “Save” to save and upload it directly to Facebook! Your group now has a fun, informative header for your favorite show’s premiere information.
From here, you can certainly add teaser videos, cast bios, and potential spoilers, if that’s up your alley. Happy premiere season!
