Facebook Is Testing the Addition of Pages’ Descriptions to Their Cover Images

The feature is desktop-only, and descriptions can be up to 100 characters


Facebook confirmed that it is testing the addition of pages’ descriptions to their cover images.

Reader Sreedev Sharma, social media manager at Acodez IT Solutions, shared the screenshots above and below with Social Pro Daily, saying that the feature is desktop-only, and that descriptions can be up to 100 characters.

Sharma added that call-to-action buttons appear in a different location and cannot be deleted or hid.

Facebook confirmed the test in an email to Social Pro Daily, saying that if a page administrator of a page involved in the test has filled out the Description field in that page’s About section, the text will automatically be transferred, and it can be edited via the Edit Information option on the cover image.
