Search has become more localized and personalized over time and this is exciting to me. Companies who are able to capitalize on these changes will eventually emerge on top.

    Wow! This is a very informative article. I was looking for something like this before, Haha, and finally I found it. It was quite hard to adjust your pictures in facebook without knowing the right dimensions. Thanks for this wonderful tip!


  2. This is super helpful for design team, planning with client and brain storming. Good work here techwyse. Why are you redirecting your link that is in your facebook post over to the Blog URL… tracking purposes etc ? Just curious. Thanks again.

    @Jeff,

    Facebook image sizes don’t accommodate our infographic’s dimensions; therefore, we link it to Facebook from the blog. We do the same with all of our blog content!

    34-24-36. Put those measurements on your page and all young guys will click on it! I know I would. All jokes aside this is certainly the most detailed image sizer for Facebook I’ve ever seen.

    I am so happy that you have created this! I have such a hard time managing my pages because I can’t afford to pay a graphic designer and I am never able to correctly size my images. I am going to repost this on Facebook to my professional network.

    Thanks for sharing. A very useful one for the ones who wanted the Facebook image to be pixel perfect.

    This is helpful for me for the simple fact that I am terrible at doing this on my lonesome. I’m happy you used a list of steps, because no doubt I will be going back and forth from this page for reference.

    Curious what the difference is between the two versions of “Facebook Shared Video”. Is that an “actual” facebook video for the first one, and a youtube link for the second one? Would love to know how to be sure to get the larger preview….

    Thanks Christy for sharing and also thank you Rajesh. This is very useful for me because, like Diamond, I’m horrible at sizing my pictures and this cheatsheet will definitely help me and others like me.

    @DB

    The first “Facebook Shared Video is the size when you upload an “actual” Facebook video. The second one is the size of the video when someone clicks the share button found directly under an “actual” Facebook video. None of the video sizes references any external sites such as YouTube. All the sizes reference strictly Facebook dimensions. I hope that answers your question DB!

    @Matt A, Mobile dimensions will vary depending on the type of operating system you’re using. Nonetheless, image sizes scale from desktop to mobile and vice versa, so I don’t believe you need to worry about mobile Facebook dimensions just yet. As long as images are optimized for the page they should convert properly on mobile devices.

    Re mobile dimensions: one thing I noticed is that the iPhone Facebook app crops the cover photo, showing only the middle part. This is probably worth reflecting in the cheat sheet.

    This just goes to show that Facebook hates us! How many different versions of graphics do we now have to make.

    Really helpful, bookmarked it. Make more! I love the little guy, whoever made this is very talented


  17. Thanks for this! Super helpful! I use photoshop and I use the correct size for my cover photos with a dpi of 72, but my pictures are a little pixelated sometimes. Do you know how to fix this?

    @Alex Davies:
    Yes I too agree this is very helpful.
    FB cover photos are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels height. If you upload an image that’s smaller than these dimensions, it will get pixelated. To get the fastest load times for your Page, upload an sRGB JPG file that’s less than 100 kilobytes and for images with your logo or text-based content, you may get a higher quality result by using a PNG file.
