Is Your Facebook Business Page Cover Photo Currently Optimized for Mobile?

I see so many Facebook Business Pages from my mobile phone that are not optimized. The information, text, phone number or image is cut off and does not look professional.

On desktop, it looks ok, but on mobile, not.

Did you know:

  • 95.1% of active users access Facebook via smartphone! [source]. Whaat? This is HUGE.
  • 1.74 billion: number of Facebook mobile monthly ACTIVE users:  [source]
  • 1.15 billion: number of Facebook mobile daily ACTIVE users:  [source]

Nearly all of your followers and potential customers are looking at your Business Page from their mobile device.

Your Facebook Business Page cover photo must look good on MOBILE!

It’s really so easy to fix this. Here’s a QUICK FIX so you can optimize your cover photo today by re-sizing your image:

I tried numerous sizes, and this one works best.

You can do this in Photoshop, Canva or any photo editing software.


And while we’re about it, your Facebook Personal Page should be optimized for mobile too. It differs from the Business Page size. It should be 640×250 pixels:
