Facebook Cover Images; YAY or Nay?

As awesome as the new Time Line is on Facebook- yes some of you still hate it and that is ok-Facebook has put some restrictions on their cover images.  Their new cover images are 
850px x 315px. Not a bad size to advertise yourself on your page, but hold your horses Nelly! They've got some rules and regulations that you need to be aware of. 

Facebook Cover photos cannot include:

-Price or purchase information, such as "40% off" or "Download it at our website". 

-Contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that should go in your Page’s "About" section.

-References to Facebook features or actions, such as "Like" or "Share" or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features.

-Calls to action, such as "Get it now' or "Tell your friends".

-Covers must not be false, deceptive or misleading, and must not infringe on third parties' intellectual property.

I make sure to tell all of my clients about these regulations, because if you disobey them, Facebook has the right to remove all access to your page- which means you could lose it. Now that is not something I am willing to take a chance on- but I do have many clients who say, forget it, just put my price up there anyway- just make an ad for a sale. I'll take the chance. -not me :)
I think there are tons of clever ways to get people to interact with your page beyond the cover image. Take a peak at some of ours... what do you think?
