Recently social networks have taken to including cover photos on their user profiles. Facebook, then Google+ and more recently Twitter have allowed users to add an additional, much larger, image to their profile page – as well as their profile photo.
As with the profile photo dimensions, the cover photo dimensions differ between each social networks, which can make the process of creating a cover photo more challenging.

Interestingly Twitter have chosen to overlay the users profile photo over the center of the cover photo, which provides an opportunity for creativity and interactivity between the cover photo and profile photo.
