We social media sites supervisors spend much excessive time on desktop instead compared to using Facebook like our followers and Group participants do-- i.e. on their mobiles/smartphones.

On resolution Facebook does not assist when it says "Keep in mind that your cover picture need to be at the very least 400 pixels wide and 150 pixels high". This is merely a minimum dimension as well as in our experience we find it way too rough and the recommendations gives no advice on safe locations for text.

So long as it's not an insane dimension you won't be penalised for uploading a great big high res photo (this utilized to be the instance with Facebook Teams where compression was used) but no much more.

One word of caution, depending on the screen you use to view (i.e. non high res/retina display), you could locate the photo a little blurry. We've try out JPG vs PNG and also a variety of sizes from 640x360 all the method to 1640x923. Now 820x461 usually looks the sharpest on older screens but we 'd still recommend 1920px x 1080px for best future proofing.
