Changes to Facebook Page's profile pic

The shape of your Page's profile picture will change from square to circular in News Feed and on your Page's timeline.

When is it changing?

The change began rolling out August 2017.

Why is it changing?

Facebook says "to make Facebook a more engaging place." We say it makes it look a little more like Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Google!

Are there any other changes?

You will notice small changes to the icon sets and animation effects.

What else do I need to know?

The larger profile version in your Page's cover area will remain square.

What do I need to do?

Ensure the key parts of your profile pic fit within 180px diameter circle.

The pink area in the image above indicates the parts of the profile pic that will be cropped. Lucky for us, we don't need to make any adjustments.

We've included a Photoshop file (.psd) to download. You can use it with your existing profile pic to check if adjustments are necessary.
