How Do I Change Album Covers?
Updated March 2015
NOTE: If you are trying to change the cover picture for your Profile Photos album, you cannot do that, your default picture is automatically your album cover for that album. The same goes for your cover photo album.

If you are trying to select which photo is used for the album cover, you are going to be disappointed to hear that this is no longer possible. Facebook now uses a little slideshow of the pictures in the album when you hover your mouse over it, and you no longer control the default album image.

Facebook no longer has Album Covers.

On the next page, hover your mouse over the picture you want as the cover, and click the little arrow that appears in the upper right.
