Facebook Cover Videos

Everything You Need to Know About Facebook Cover Videos
July 28th, 2017  / Marco Woldt

This new Facebook function will make your business page pop! Facebook is rolling out cover videos. Find out how to switch from photo to video and which type of content is most likely to engage your followers and potential customers. 

Exciting news for social media marketers and entrepreneurs: business page owners can now replace their Facebook cover image with a video. Facebook cover videos play back automatically and in a loop. The function has already been enabled on many of the 65 million Facebook business pages.

This brings a much-needed make-over to Facebook’s business pages and is part of the social network’s plan to create a “richer experience” there. And it’s about time. Think about all the business pages you’ve visited over the years – how many cover photos do you recall? Not many, you say? I don’t either.

Thanks to the introduction of moving images, Facebook covers are about to get a whole lot more memorable. In this blogpost I’ve gathered everything you need to know in order to bring your business page cover to life. Let’s get started!

What was used to make that website ?

Have you ever visited a site and thought –
Wow, I really like that. I wonder what they used to make it ?

In the past it was easy to find out: just right click on the page and then click “view source”.
From there you could scroll down and easily see if it was html, WordPress, Java, or any other code. You could even copy some of the code snippets to use on your own site if you wanted.

This can still be done but websites are much more complex these days and quite often harder to decipher.

Luckily there are now tools available to help you out. Just do a search for “how to tell what a website was created with” and you can easily find browser addons, software, and even free sites that allow you to enter a URL and give you all the details.

One of my favorites is builtwith.com and another is wappalyzer.com.

They are free for the casual user and provides a great deal of information. It will tell you the web hosting provider (important to know if certain features are needed), what it was created with (WordPress, Drupal, HTML, Java, etc.), the Content Management System it is using (if any), Social Media links, Advertising Info, Analytics and Tracking, Payment Providers, Secure Certificate Info, Shopping Carts used, and much more.  As video becomes more popular be sure and take a look at what is used to embed video on the site and find out which ones load fast (or not) and have the embedded controls you desire.

So- the next time you see a website you like go ahead and take a deeper look.
It’s Easy !

Artificial Intelligence Websites?

What would you think of websites that designed themselves ?

No more having to decide on a format or template to use.
No more having to find just the right colors for your site.
No more having to find the right font style and size.

What if you could just post some text, maybe an accompanying image, and any other information and everything else was done for you?

Background colors would automatically adjust to blend in with your photographs. The layout would automatically update and change as content changed for easy reading. Menus and navigation would update as needed.

As easy to use as a social website for publishing, and responsive to work on all device types and sizes.  Each account can be used to publish on up to 7 domains for the same price each year.

It’s been around for a couple years now and we have a Founding Members Account to try it out.  We’ll be building a sample site or two in the upcoming year so our readers can see what it’s all about.
