Thinking about changing your FB cover photo?
Hoping to create a sweet new featured image?
Well... SIZE MATTERS!
In fact, most images on Facebook (from your profile pic to ad images) need to comply with the official Facebook dimensions if you really want them to pop!
But keeping up with the official Facebook dimensions can be tough -- since they're always changing!
Nothing's worse than creating an awesome image, uploading it to Facebook, and finding out the dimensions are all wrong.
And with so many people using Facebook on their smartphones, your images need to be AMAZING if you want engagement.
I've written about Facebook dimensions before, but many things have changed since then.
Thankfully, TechWyse is here to help. Their "Facebook Cheat Sheet" infographic is spot on!
