Being the largest and widely used social network, Facebook is used in a variety of ways. This includes contacting friends and family, reaching out to long-lost classmates, and getting new customers for your business. Additionally, you can also mobilize a movement by simply creating an event.

Because of this, in order to grab your audience’s attention, it is crucial to create eye-catching visual pages, posts and advertisements and to identify which type of content that works best for Facebook and its appropriate dimensions.

Profile photo
Once you upload an image, Facebook crops it to a square, but you can always choose which part of the image to crop. Facebook profile photos display at 180 x 180 pixels on computers and 128 x 128 pixels on most smartphones.

Cover photo
Facebook cover photos look like banners on top of your Facebook timeline. They display at 820 x 312 pixels on most computers and 640 x 360 pixels on most smartphones.

Event covers
Facebook event covers have a different size from a regular page’s cover photo. If you’re planning an event, make sure to upload an image that’s 1200 pixels wide by 628 pixels tall.

Image posts
If you upload a single image to your timeline, it’s best to stick either to a square image or a photo with a 3:2 aspect ratio as Facebook will automatically scale your image to a thumbnail.

Facebook ads
If you’re using Facebook to promote a business or organization and want to reach a wider audience, placing paid ads on Facebook would be your best bet. Facebook ads may be single-image ads, carousel ads (which allow you to display up to 10 images or videos and can link to different web pages), or video ads.

For image-based ads, keep photos to a 1.91:1 ratio with recommended dimensions of 1200 pixels wide and 628 pixels tall. You will have to submit your ad to Facebook for approval. Things like too much text on your image can disqualify your ad. You can use Facebook text check tool here (https://www.facebook.com/ads/tools/text_overlay) to make sure your ad fits their standards.
