Facebook Page Profile Photo Best Practices

  • Choose a profile picture for your brand that can be recognized even in very small dimensions. Your profile picture will show up most often as a thumbnail on Facebook, so make sure you keep this in mind when deciding on a picture to use.
  • Use an icon if possible. Icons are more recognizable in small sizes and can be readily used because they are often square.
  • Resolution matters! Your image has to be at least 180px wide, but if it is even larger, it’ll make a better impression if anybody clicks on the profile picture.
