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
Facebook Image Guidelines:
- Cover images must be at least 399 pixels wide and may not contain:
- Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”
- Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page’s About section
- References to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site features
- Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”
