GOT IT! The Facebook Event Cover Photo Size

Event Marketers are always looking for the Facebook event cover photo size.

The Facebook event cover photo dimensions are vital, and Facebook does not make it easy to find their optimal dimensions. The Facebook business page cover photo size can be different, but wouldn’t it be nice if these sizes were more universal. Generally speaking, Facebook page cover photo size might be different from the Facebook group cover photo size and the Facebook event photo size so does it all really matter?

Size Matters

Facebook Event Cover Photo Size Basics Guide

  • Currently: 1200 x 628 (2:1 ratio)
  • Recommendation: 1920 x 1080 (16:9 ratio)
  • Minimum Dimensions: 470 × 174

The current Facebook event image will be different from both of the other options like the fan page and also your personal profile page.

Generally speaking you can make them bigger, but don’t make them smaller, for the better results. Both myself #MagicBrad and Facebook often recommend at least a 1200 pixel width.

Things change

Like most everything on the Internet, it will change. The event cover photo may vary at different times depending on when Facebook makes updates.

It was checked and verified on January 4, 2019, that the recommended size for a Facebook event cover photo is 1200 x 628. It has been recommended that the width of the image is 1920 pixels.

The reason these sizes vary so often, is that they are being showed on multiple devices from multiple device manufacturers. Too bad we can’t all agree on a universal system.

The Facebook event image size on an iPad displays at 128 x 674 pixels. This is that the size of the iPad device, will vary from other manufactured tablet devices.

With all of this being said and done, the bottom line is getting people to find your event, and then click on the registration button.
