Facebook Enlarges Timeline Pages’ Profile Images

Facebook will increase the size of profile images on timeline pages to 160 pixels by 160 pixels, from 125 by 125, the social network announced in an email to page owners, saying the change will be implemented Thursday.

Images must still be uploaded at 180 pixels by 180 pixels, after which they are resized by Facebook.

For brands that incorporate their profile images into their cover photos, in addition to the increase in size, it should be noted that the profile image will now be located 23 pixels from the left and 201 pixels from the top of the page.
