In this ever-changing world of Social Media it’s hard to keep up to date with the various image sizes for your business page. So here’s a quick guide to help you.

Facebook Profile Image

Every article I read says it should be 180px by 180px. However I always find it’s too pixelated and blurry for me. So I created mine at 300px by 300px and it was much better.

Facebook Cover

Your Facebook Cover should always be 820px by 312px. They take up such a huge part of your page so use it to showcase your business and highlight your USPs (Unique Selling Points).

If you want to make your page look even sexier why not go all out and add a Facebook Cover Video! This can something as simple as still images as a slideshow created in MovieMaker or iMovie or even PowerPoint. Or you could look at online video software such as Viddyoze. Keep in mind your cover video should be at least 820px by 312px and between 20 and 90 seconds.

Facebook Post

To share a simple image stick to 940px by 788px. Of course you can push the height and try going as far as 1200 to get that long extended image. Once you go over 1800px Facebook will start to crop the image however.

Facebook Link Image

Most good websites will have this image already pre-set. However if when you share a link the image is not correct or you’d like to create a different image for your link use 1200px by 628px.

Facebook Event Image

To get the most out of an event on Facebook be sure to create and upload the correct sized image. I see businesses on a weekly basis sharing events with the wrong image as their header. Don’t fall into this trap. Use 1920px by 1080px.

Facebook Stories

Facebook stories are not just for the ad-hoc style posts. They can be used to support whatever campaign you are currently running. Use well designed and branded stories to give your page an extra level of professionalism. The right size to use is 1080px by 1920px.
