They're great for communicating your products and services, highlighting a current campaign or simply your brand's values. If you don't have the right tools to create your cover photos it's probably easier said than done, so you may find you either have to struggle to design a professional looking cover photo for each social network on your own, ask a design competent colleague or friend to do it for you, or hire a designer or agency to do it.

I'll also give you the correct dimensions needed for most frequently used social platforms; Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Linkedin.
