The Ever Changing Facebook

One of the main ways we communicate at Holy Nativity Church is through Facebook.  However, Facebook change the way things work every five minutes.  One of the most irritating changes has been the way they use images in Facebook events.  Graphic design can communicate so much more than the written word – this is why the contributions I make to Anglican Meme’s get hundred’s of hits more than articles on my blog.  The changes to Facebook event images mean that different parts of the image are displayed on different parts of the site.  There is now no image you can create where you can know for certain that all of the image will be shown in the different boxes around the site.

I discovered this template that shows which parts of the image will appear in each image box around Facebook.  You get emailed a link to the template and it has handy guidelines.  I’ve had one go at making a Pentecost image that fits.  It seems to display exactly as the creator says.
