Uploading Images to Facebook has become a common practice. Some people are fond of photography, and they capture important events of their lives and share them with their friends, others do it for publicity of their products. One image is more than thousands of words to attract the user’s attention. If you are sharing the contents of your website to attract traffic to your website, then images will play the most vital role in this task. We will discuss all photos that we upload to Facebook, i.e. Profile Picture, Cover Picture, and also pictures that appear in the news feed.

Facebook Profile Image

The profile picture is the most important picture of recognition. This is the picture that is visible to all of the visitors that visit your profile.

The recommended profile photo size is 360 x 360 pixels. The minimum allowed size is 180 x 180 pixels. If you upload a large photo, it will be rescaled by Facebook, and the resulting picture will look stretched and ugly. So keep in mind these sizes when you choose your profile picture. This image will round to a size of 168 x 168 circle.

Facebook Cover Photo
