How To: Change the photos that appear at the top of your Facebook wall

facebook verfied accountsAmong the many changes Facebook has made with their new profile layout introduction, you now have a row of photos that appear at the top of your profile just under the info blurb and above your wall. These are randomly generated as soon as you convert to the new profile based on photos that you are tagged in (yours or someone else's).

Wondering how to change them? Here is are two ways:

  1. Upload new photos and tag yourself in them. Newly tagged photos should appear first.

  2. Find pics (of yourself) that you would like to appear in your profile and tag yourself.

  3. If you are already tagged, remove the tag by clicking on "remove tag" and re-tag yourself.


There you go. A quick and easy way to customize your new profile a bit further.

  1. Great tip, Craig!

    Another way to skin the cat: if you mouse over the photos, an "X" appears in the corner of the photo, allowing you to "hide" the photo. When you click it, the confirmation message says: "Hiding a photo only removes it from your profile page. People you've allowed will still be able to view this photo on your photos page."

    So, when one of your friends goes and tags you in a bunch of photos from this weekend or a certain event, you can just go and "X" them out until you get to the mix of photos you want displayed...until you're tagged again!

    Best,
    Steph.

  4. Yup, that's nice. However it doesn't work on your company/artist-profile, since you can't tag company/artist photos...

    Any ideas on how to arrange top 5-photos on your company site?
