Facebook to change size of Profile Picture

I was so excited to experiment with the new large timeline photo.  Here’s something we did for one of our pro bono clients,  Hope Water Foundation.


Now we learn that Facebook will be changing the size of the profile picture. Hmm, seems like they are following  Google+ profiles which recently enlarged their photo.

Previously, a photo measured 130 x 125 pixels, overlaying a user’s Timeline Cover image.  However, on April 26 Facebook’s profile images will be enlarged to 166 x 160 pixels. Guess we will need to resize the photo to work as a larger image.
