So you run business but don’t have a business card, but you wanted to create some wonderful cards. And if you have a Facebook profile with timeline enabled, then you are in good luck. If you’ve been living in a hole for the past few months you might be wondering what a Facebook Timeline is. Not found it yet? look at mine instead (I just hope I’ve got the privacy settings right!): Woah! Did you see it? Uh huh, one massive long history of you! How cool is that? Beautiful images, life events and right at the top – one massive headline image – Facebook calls this a Cover Photo.
Working closely with the Facebook Timeline team, Moo.com has using the Facebook Cover Photo concept, has come up with Business Card format by mirroring the fonts, layout and iconography of the Timeline. See image above for how your Cover Photos translate to Facebook Cards.
Each pack will contain all your Cover Photos and each card will show your name, company or college, where you live as well as your Facebook URL, phone number and e-mail address. Also on the back of the card is space for you to add your own quotation or sentence about yourself. By default we pull in the first quote we find in your Favorite Quotations field but you can edit this to say whatever you like.
You can then edit the card and prefill pretty much every detail I mentioned above. All you have to do is click Next, Next, Next. It couldn’t be any easier!
To prove it, here’s a video of me making them to show you just how easy it is:
To make your own Facebook cards just go to your http://www.facebook.com/yourfacebookusername/info and hover over the little Business Card in your Contact Info. Make sure you’ve got a Timeline profile though!
