It’s not very often Facebook changes it’s rules to our advantage, but that just happened this week. The rule that there can be no commercial information or calls-to-action on your cover has been relaxed!

The ’20% text on the cover’ rule still stands, but what you can say in that text is now much more flexible. Here’s the new wording from Facebook:

“All covers are public. This means that anyone who visits your Page will be able to see your cover. Covers can’t be deceptive, misleading, or infringe on copyright. You may not encourage people to upload your cover to their personal timelines. Covers may not include images with more than 20% text.”

You can now add “Click Like” or Enter the contest” or “Download our whitepaper.” Try “visit us at …” and add your address.
