    Hey guys,

    Got a problem with my co.’s facebook profile picture. It’s currently set to scale to fit but instead it comes up as a blurry portion of the image. Any ideas how to resolve this issue?

    You profile pic is too wide.

    Try creating an image 160px X 160px (or in that ratio) and you should be fine.

    Thanks for the that. :)

    Little bit of playing around in GIMP and we’re good to go.

    Appreciate it. ;)

    Cool that Matthew sorted it for you. FYI, here’s a nice page explaining how to position and size things so you can nicely integrate the banner and icon if you’re interested.

    Thanks for the like Matthew! Can businesses like other businesses, or can I only like businesses from my personal account? Went onto Smashing and I can’t seem to find a like button…

    And great link adrian, I’ll have to look into integrating some of their interesting ideas into my fb page.

    Matthew to the rescue on the image. Glad it got sorted!

    Re businesses liking businesses. Yes, you can do that. I do it all the time. However your ‘like’ doesn’t count as far as the numbers go as Facebook has it only set up for private individuals likes to count. Now, I guess the reason for this is that one individual could have multiple business pages (I certainly do) and they probably don’t want to blow out the count with ‘false’ numbers.

    I prefer to like other business pages from my business page, although I know many desperately want my ‘like’ to count. But the reason I do this is that I wear several hats, and have several pages to go with those hats. I only want updated wall news to show up on the home wall of the business page I was liking from – for that particular industry or category. So, as a VA, I want all VA updated news to show up on the wall of my VA page, and not on the wall of my personal profile. I hope that makes sense?
