Benefits of the new Facebook dimensions

One thing to know about Facebook dimensions, they’re not just a chart to use to size your images.  Yes, they can help make your content look good to fans, images won’t look squished anymore.  These new dimensions that I’ve listed below though are also a vital part of your overall Facebook marketing strategy. If you don’t have a Facebook marketing strategy yet, you should consider creating one because all of these new Facebook dimensions now give you many more ways to showcase your content on your Facebook Page.

For instance, instead of just choosing to upload a photo as a regular Facebook photo, you may want to consider trying a highlighted photo instead because it helps display your photo better.  This could also mean a boost in engagement with fans because instead of seeing part of a photo like before, fans can get a much better view of it now.

So before uploading a photo, consider these Facebook dimensions.

  • Facebook Timeline cover photo (851 x 315)
  • Facebook profile (180 x 180)
  • Facebook photos (403 x 403)
  • Facebook landing pages (810 x infinite)
