    i was sure it was 940px wide too earlier today but now i’m seeing it at 900px on my personal profile and my business page…

    Changing the Cover Photo only offers the “Delete” option mentioned above, which completely deletes the photo from your entire account (Scrapbook, etc.).  This makes little sense.  Each change of the Cover Photo thus requires uploading new images.
