As you know, Facebook does like to change things up fairly often & the way your cover images show up on mobile is no exception. Even Facebook itself doesn’t recommend the proper dimensions for your image to show up correctly on across mobile and desktop. However, using the dimensions provided below you should be covered for optimal viewing on most mobile devices and desktop.

The secret is to make your image taller than the recommended 828 x 315 pixels – 465 pixels tall, to be exact. This gives you 75 extra pixels at the top and bottom which will be cropped on the desktop view.

You can easily do this using a free tool we love – Canva by selecting “Use Custom Dimensions”.

NOTEYou will want to be mindful of anything placed in the top and bottom section for optimal desktop viewing.

You could even get creative and do a special offer for mobile users! This could be especially useful if you are a local store or restaurant. You could offer a discount or free item for mobile users who stop in and show they found you via mobile.
