FBtutorial.com — Facebook Page Profile Picture Size and Dimension hasn’t really changed much and has remained just about the same in recent years! Today on FBtutorial.com, we cover the dimension and size of facebook page profile photo as of 2017!
If you want your Facebook Page’s Profile Picture/Avatar to display properly on desktop, mobile and tablets, then it is important you resize the social media image of your brand to the recommended size and dimension suggested by Facebook.
Facebook Page Profile Picture Dimension
Your Facebook Page profile picture size displays at 170×170 pixels on desktop computers, 128×128 pixels on smartphones and 36×36 pixels on most feature phones. Facebook Help Center recommends uploading a page profile picture of at least 180 x 180 pixels.
Even if you are unable to resize your Page’s avatar image to exactly 180 x 180, Facebook has this cool function that auto-fits your page profile thumbnail to fit the square layout.
While Facebook Pages Profile picture currently displays at a dimension of 170×170 pixels as of 2017 on the social network, you must upload a larger picture size in order for your page avatar to be very clear and not appear blurry when clicked/expanded on a computer (i.e., Facebook Desktop/Laptop).
Today (January 17, 2017), when we tried to update FBtutorial page profile picture on Facebook with a 190×190 pixels image and with a 300×250 image, we received the following notice/warning:
⚠️️ “This photo is small and your profile picture will be less clear.”
FBtutorial.com recommends uploading a Page Profile Picture Size of at least 600×600 pixels and allow Facebook to auto-magically resize your page profile photo to display clearly when enlarged in full and as thumbnail (default size).
This guarantees your company or brand’s social media profile picture displays beautifully across all devices and platforms (Computer Web, Mobile Web, Mobile App).
Recommended Facebook Page Profile Picture Format
When it comes to your Facebook Page Profile Picture Format, Facebook recommends uploading a PNG file format for better image display quality on their website. In other words, do not upload a lossy compressed JPG image file format on Facebook.
Unlike JPEG (.JPG) – a file extension for lossy graphics file, PNG is a graphics file format that supports lossless data compression, and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet.
Your Page’s profile picture will be cropped to fit the square.
Your Page’s profile picture displays at 170×170 pixels on computers, 128×128 pixels on smartphones and 36×36 pixels on most feature phones.
Facebook displays your page profile picture in full when clicked (enlarged) and as thumbnail when not clicked—on Facebook Web & Mobile.
For page profile pictures with your company logo or text, you may get a better result by using a PNG file.
