Facebook Timeline for Business Pages – Facebook Profile Image Changes Size

Yes, I know we just got done cleaning up all of our Facebook business pages and maxing out the new dimensions for the cover image and profile photo. But, Facebook has decided to switch it up again.

Facebook sent out an update on the image size change in the weekly page update.

“On April 26, we will be updating the size of the pro­file pic­ture on all Pages. We are let­ting you know about this small change in advance so that you can update your pro­file pic­ture on April 26. The new pro­file pic­ture will be 160 x 160 pixels and will sit at 23 pixels from the left and 210 pixels from the top of the Page.”

Previously the image was 125 x 125 pixels. The new change will make your profile image slightly bigger.

Facebook Image Size Change


So, if you have a logo as your profile image you may need to clean it up so that it remains sharp and fits correctly using up the proper amount of space. And, if you have an image that integrates into your cover image, such as the “handle” (to make it look like a shopping bag) shown above on the Macy’s Facebook Business page, you will need to also recreate the image in your cover so it matches up appropriately.
