I’ve been submitting Facebook profile covers to bestwallcover.tumblr.com for the last couple months. It’s quite an enjoyable way to document online self image and a wee bit of self promotion.

What is best wall cover?   :

“Best Wall Cover is an attempt to explore how people portray themselves publicly online, within the simple set of options offered by Facebook’s standard layout. The simple combination of the Profile Image with the Wall Cover is subject to endless experimentation, producing a stream of ephemeral self portraits, between transparence and opacity, self representation and identity construction.

To participate:

– take a screenshot of your Facebook Wall Cover or of your favorite ones;

– upload it to your Tumblr tagging it “best wall cover”, or just clicking on http://bestwallcover.tumblr.com/submit.”

Here are the covers I’ve submitted:
