The Ultimate Guide on Facebook Dimensions (for ALL Page & Feed Images)

The_Ultimate_Guide_on_Facebook_Dimensions_for_ALL_Page__Feed_Images-lsFacebook dimensionsThinking 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!

Bookmark this post so you have the new image dimensions handy next time your Facebook page needs a makeover.

Page Posts & Ads:

  2. Page Post Link/Offer in Desktop Sidebar Ad -- 254 x 133 pixels
  3. Page Post Link/Offer on Mobile News Feed -- 560 x 292 pixels
  4. News Feed Image Posts -- 1,200 pixels wide, displays as 470 x 470 pixels

Reminder: any image you use for a Facebook ad cannot be more than 20% text. Facebook strictly enforces this & may immediately deny an ad or stop one once it's been reviewed.

Use TechWyse's Facebook Image Checker to find out if your photos have too much text.
