Book Time On My Calendar

We’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time in recent weeks figuring out the ideal dimensions for Facebook Group, Page and Cover cover photos. Googling it results in a mass of conflicting recommendations – mainly out-of-date. Facebook finally announced the new size. Naturally, it crops differently on every device. (Why would Facebook make things easy?)

According to Facebook , the ideal size is 1,640px by 856px, or 1.91:1 ratio. For most devices.


Below is our 1920px x 1080px cover photo. You’ll see the full image on mobile with top and bottom crops coming in for first tablets than desktop. The shaded area in the middle is what is visible on all devices so this is the safe area for text.
