Do you wonder why Facebook ruins the picture that you post? Sometimes, when you share your best birthday pictures, part of them get cut by Facebook. The reason is as a result of using inappropriate dimension. Today, we will share with you all sizes that you should use in 2022 for your image before you post on Facebook.
No matter how small in size your image is, Facebook must compress it in order to make Facebook site load faster because they just released that they generate 4 new petabytes of data per day.
Meanwhile, Facebook will resize an image to have a width of 500 pixels so as to avoid pixelation, cropping, and slow load times.
For your image to appear normal, Facebook recommends that you dimensions of 1200 x 630 pixels. While the aspect ratio should be 1.91:1.22.
