Dimensions of covers for popular social networks

One of the first things that users pay attention to when visiting a page of a particular community is the cover. It does not matter what kind of social network speech – the cover still remains the largest element on the page. Therefore, you should give it proper attention. The team TechnoSloop prepared for you a guide on the size of covers in popular social networks. Bookmark it.

It is important to know:

  • The cover photo will be displayed slightly differently on the mobile device than on the desktop.
  • The cover position can be changed by sliding it up or down. You can do this only on the desktop.


  • A profile photo (avatar), name and a few more buttons overlap the cover. Consider this when you select a photo.
  • When someone comes to your page, he sees about half of the cover. To see it whole, you have to postpolio.

Facebook video cover

820px x 465px

Yes. Recently, you can choose a video as a cover in Facebook. And here are some recommendations:

  • The video must be at least 820 pixels wide and 312 pixels high. For the best result – 820 x 456.
  • The length of the video should be between 20 and 90 seconds.

The best video format is MP4 or MOV. But you can choose something from this list.

The group Facebook


Here everything is about the same as on the page, just a little shorter. The ideal size is 820 x 462 px. However, a small part of the desktop will be visible, so try to keep the image at least 400px in length and 150px in height.

It’s also worth considering that the image on the desktop will not be covered by text, and on mobile devices, it will be:


Also, you should be puzzled by how the cover photo will look in miniatures, so it’s better than the text (if any) be in the center:


Facebook event

There are no translations available.

1920 x 1080px


The recommended event cover size is 1920px in width and 1080px in height. If the event is public, all the photos can be seen. If the private is exclusively invited, users.


1584 x 396px


If after downloading the photo it looks vague, LinkedIn recommends choosing to download an image of 8MB size or as close as possible to it, as more often larger photos look better. Images with logos look worse than photos without them.

On mobile devices, the image will be cropped:


Company Profile LinkedIn

There are currently no product reviews.

  • LinkedIn will cut the photo on the desktop.
  • On mobile devices, the photo will be approximated.


2560 x 1440px


The cover photo looks different on different devices. Also should be considered:

  • The minimum extension to download: 2048 x 1152px.
  • Safe area for text and logos: 1546 x 423px.
  • Maximum width: 2560 x 423px. The safe area here is that part that is visible regardless of the screen size of the user’s device.
  • File size: 4MB or less.

While working on the cover for your YouTube channel, please note that the social network places your profile photo and links at the top (on desktops and mobile devices), so do not place important items in the top left and bottom right corner.




Here it is worth considering that:

  • The profile photo covers the cover.
  • Twitter, like Facebook, allows you to scale the image for the cover.
  • On mobile devices, the cover is slightly approximated, and its edges are cut off.

  • All the important elements are better placed in the center of the image. The thing is that the cover photos in Google+ are adaptive. They will automatically be clipped while you scroll the page, and those items that are located in the middle will always be in focus.
  • The photo of the cover looks and behaves on mobile devices the same as on the desktop.
