Timeline Image Dimensions:

  • Facebook Timeline Header Image Dimensions: 850w x 315h
  • Facebook Thumbnail Image Dimension: 180w x 180h. Note that the actual size that shows on the page is 160 x 160 so leave 20 pixels of blank space around a 160 x 160 image so that the entire thumbnail appears on the page correctly! (Thanks to Peregrine Associates for this little nugget of wisdom)
    • The thumbnail gets shrunk to 32w x 32h on wall posts
  • Facbeook Page Tab Image Dimensions: 111w x 74h
