Teen Girl Creates A Sensation With Her Incredible Facebook Timeline Cover Photos

By January 7, 2013

So it wasn’t too long ago pretty much everyone on Facebook was bemoaning the launch of the much-hated Timeline format. Remember that? While most of us struggled to find one picture that looked good with those dimensions, a few inventive types really made the most of Facebook’s latest format.  One of those people is ingenious teen, Libby Cooper.

As a teen who spends A LOT of time on the internet, (unusual right?) Libby decided not to just waste her time aimlessly browsing, instead she decided to create an amazing pop-culture themed collection of Timeline cover photos starring herself. She inserted her profile pic into iconic photos from some of her favorite movies, several works of art and with some of her favorite boys (I’m looking at you One Direction!). The results were pretty dang charming. And I’m not the only one who thinks so. When Libby posted some of her creations on her Tumblr, they became an instant hit. Here’s a look at some of the best:

I kind of love her. Don’t you?  The pictures for sure make you smile, but there is a little teen angst behind it all that gave me a slight case of the awwws. Her gallery on Tumblr is headed with this quote:  “I don’t think people understand how lonely I am on Facebook.”  Come on Libby, my black heart can’t take so much sad! Although I’m pretty sure she’s not lonely anymore. In fact, according to Libby’s mother, she had to create a new Facebook account to accommodate all the new friend requests she has been receiving. I just love happy endings. What? Black-hearted ones can be corny too!

What do you think of Libby’s work? Do you have a cool Timeline cover photo? Let us know  in the comments!
