As many businesses, especially small businesses, are still trying to catch up and adapt to the new Facebook Timeline features, Facebook recently announced that more changes are coming for business pages. Facebook will be changing the size and location of your profile picture/avatar. It’s minor, but if If you have a tightly integrated design between your profile picture and your cover photo, you should definitely be aware of this change. Same holds true if you’re a business with multiple brand pages or an agency handling social media marketing for dozens of companies with highly designed profile and cover images. This could mean lots of design work to edit, that you likely recently spent hours perfecting.
Facebook’s official statement:
"On April 26, we will be updating the size of the profile picture on all Pages. We are letting you know about this small change in advance so that you can update your profile picture on April 26. The new profile picture will be 160 x 160 pixels and will sit at 23 pixels from the left and 210 pixels from the top of the Page."
If this is a sign of things to come, Facebook will likely continual to roll out changes to business pages. What do you think their purchase of Instagram will bring?
