Wow, that's a manly hand! I mean just look at it! So much strength and confidence. It's amazing how much you can tell about someone by the way they wipe a dash. This guy is probably handsome and charming as well. Yup, probably.

Time To Update Your Cover Images For Google Plus Profiles And Pages - Tips And Resources

Just as I was about to make a change to my cover photos for my Google Plus Profile and Page, there is an announcement from Google.

+Sara McKinley of Google writes about the changes, but in summary:

- we get a new tab for Local reviews encouraging us to write reviews of local places (note this anyone who has a local business as this could encourage more reviews so make sure you are managing your Google Plus page)

- there is an easier way to edit your 'About' tab and you can share specific fields with specific Circles, or keep them private

- the profile picture is now a circle - this is an important one to consider if you are a brand and want your logo to display correctly

- the hover card becomes more prominent with summary details of your profile so make sure you check what people will see in your hover card

- cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16x9 when fully expanded - for business Pages this gives the opportunity to display more images about your business.

The changes are being rolled out gradually (I can access them on my Page and profile).

Note that if you change your cover image you CAN NOT be changed back (see my image below).

What Dimensions Are The Google Plus New Cover Images?

+Stephan Hovnanian has already created an image as a style guide that he is giving permission to download and use to create your new cover images for your profile and your Page:

What To Do If You Have No Design Skills And Need Inspiration For Your Cover Image?

+Trey Ratcliff has generously made available lots of high resolution photographs that you can use in your cover image - they are available free under a Creative Commons Non Commercial licence so I don't recommend you use them on your business page. You can find them here:

What If I Need More Inspiration To Create A Great Google Plus Cover Image?

+Google+ Helper has curated 10 cover images that will give you some ideas for your Page and profile:

I'd love to hear from you if you come across great cover images and do share when you change yours. I will be waiting a while before my changes as I'm delivering a workshop on Google Plus today and have Internatonal Women's Day events all day tomorrow!

The best pizza in Birmingham for the money. You can easily spend $40 on a medium pizza at some Bham pizza restaurants, but this is a pizza joint. You can get a darn good pie at a fair price (just remember to use the coupons). While you're there, be sure to check out their wine selection (again use the coupon).
