As you know Facebook upgraded all Facebook Pages to the timeline design on March 30 so please go to this post for the new image sizes and Facebook Cover Photo Checklist : http://tina.bz/coversfb
Did you realize your Facebook Fan Page profile picture can be as big as this?
[Have updated this post as the new size is 540 pixels high by 180 pixels wide.
Facebook still refers to the vertical banner on your Page as your Page Profile Picture. This post is intended to encourage you to maximize your visual branding of the vertical banner on your Facebook (Fan) Page.]
Very generous of Facebook to give us all this valuable space on their site – the second most popular site on the globe! (Alexa)
A picture is worth a thousand words! And all this space is free!
How to Make the Best Use of this Free Space
1. Do this first – upload your full-size profile picture – 540 pixels high and 180 pixels wide. Grab your designer or Photoshop friend! Aviary is a free online photo editor you can use to create your vertical banner if you are using a single photograph.
2. Keep your branding consistent. On your Fan Page, Facebook allows you to promote your products or services – so go for it!
3. Include a photo of you in your profile picture – its about connecting with people.
4. Include your core offering so your visitors can see immediately how you can help them.
