Are you a frequent Facebook user, be it for a personal, brand, or business account? Chances are you’ll know what we’re talking about when we say that there is a standard of practice for uploading images to Facebook.
There are a variety of opportunities to upload images on the site and many of them are displayed differently, so in order to maximize your marketing or creative efforts, abide by the guidelines so your image content can receive maximum exposure.
Here’s our guide to Facebook’s official sizing requirements so you never have to worry about searching for the proper photo requirements again!
