As the new year begins, we see lots of folks updating their Facebook pages. First impressions are a big deal – so here’s an easy tip for your business’ Facebook cover.
We know not everyone is familiar with the recommended sizes, the cropping and the reasons for these recommendations. The cover photo is the horizontal photo that every visitor to your Facebook page sees.
One of the biggest mistakes that we see folks make with their cover photo is bringing the important content in their photo all the way to the edges. The reason why this is an issue is that when the photos are loaded on mobile devices, they are cropped differently than they are cropped on computers.
In order to have a cover photo that properly represents your business on all devices:
Your cover photo should be 820 x 360
with all content restrained within 640 x 316.
If we keep all important wording or design elements within those limits, your cover photo will look great on all devices.
We are so excited for 2020, we can’t wait to see where everyone goes this year!
