What are the ideal Facebook image sizes?

Quick reference guide and cheat sheet for Facebook Images Dimensions and Sizes

What is the ideal Facebook Image size?  Facebook is a really powerful marketing tool for your business, and a great way to utilize Facebook for your business is to use images on a regular basis in your status updates on both your personal profile and your business pages.

Images get a much higher rate of engagement and attract attention more easily – meaning that more people see your updates, so images can be very powerful marketing tools for your business.  Any image update we do on our Facebook page almost always gets a higher rate of engagement, more views and better conversions into leads and clients.

But it can be tricky to get images displaying properly on Facebook and looking their best if you don’t know the ideal dimensions and sizes to upload them in.  Your images could be getting displayed small, or getting cropped and people are not seeing the entire image.  Getting the right dimensions and sizes for your images are really important and can make a really big difference to the response of the post.

So I’ve created this quick and easy guide to help you out and make sure that your pictures and images are displaying right.
