We often talk about the “right” image size for Facebook, but we almost always forget to mention that 99% of Facebook user impression now occur on the NewsFeed.  Nevertheless, web designers and community managers insist on making their pages look good visually.

I am not against that, I love a good looking, well structured page too. But since most of our followers will see our images on the NewsFeed, we should really take this into account when creating visuals.

The following “twin” infographics were brought to us by McBeard Media and show the full-size versions of images on both the Facebook NewsFeed and a Facebook Page.

Key points to remember

  • – The optimized image for Newsfeed is 1200×1000 pixels
  • – The “square” image (1200×1200 pixels) looks best on pages
  • – All “non optimized” images will be left-aligned on the NewsFeed

Now check out both infographic to see how the same images appear on both the Facebook NewsFeed and on Pages.
