It seems like only yesterday Facebook launched it’s new Timeline look for all pages. And they are already making changes to it.
This move comes just days after Google updated Google+ profiles to display a larger photo. The larger profile images help users identify the person they add into Circles or communicate with on Google+.
Previously, a Facebook profile photo measured 130 x 125 pixels, overlaying a user’s Timeline Cover image. The square photo is a smaller version of a user’s profile image, which displays at full size when a visitor clicks on it.
The new profile picture will be 160 x 160 pixels. It will be positioned 23 pixels from the left and 210 pixels from the top of the page.
This makes the image more prominent but it also takes up more of a user’s Timeline Cover. If you have a custom Cover that incorporates the profile image into it, this will impact your page. Be ready to update your profile picture on April 26.
