All the way back in June, we shared with you that there was a new Facebook design coming to your Business Pages.
There were some pretty big shifts in the layout, which meant changes to photo dimensions and priority of certain features.
We wrote about which elements you should focus on to prepare for the change, but after finding this infographic from Tech Wyse, we thought it was time to give you a little update on which Facebook features are most important and what you can do to maximize your appeal to your audience.
1. Cover Photo
Dimensions for your cover photo will remain at 851 x 315 pixels. When visiting your Page, it will be the first thing visitors will see so you want to be sure it is something that will accurately represent your company or organization.
Since your profile picture (180 x 180 px) is within the cover photo, try to get creative in how you design your cover photo. The infographic gives you details on cut-offs so you can play with having your profile picture be a continuation of what is happening in your cover photo like these pages did here.
Just remember that the text and buttons are now overlaid on your cover photo, including Facebook’s new call-to-action buttons, so be sure everything is still legible!
Custom tab images made moves from right under the cover photo to a bit further down the page under your ‘About’ section.
Their new dimensions are 111 x 74 px and are still important for sharing and promoting any contests you may be running.
Only three custom tab images (which are called ‘Apps’ by Facebook) will be displayed at one time, so choose wisely which you want displayed on your page at any given time. Facebook gives you the tools to reorder them at any time!
Suggested upload size is 1200 x 1200 px, but the aspect ratio is what is most important since images scale down at a 1:1 or 1:3 ratio.
However, these dimensions are different for ads! The recommended size is 1200 x 628 px, so be sure to consult the image below for ALL the differences between mobile, desktop, and promoted post dimensions.
And here they are, in all their glory:
