When it comes to social media platforms, most of the time, the first impression matters. It is easier to attract someone once they have a favorable impression of your account. So, you should regularly change the Facebook page profile picture to use this to your advantage.

Remember that changing your profile picture is a simple process you can do whenever and as many times as you want. But what you should really think about is which photo you should keep.

Besides these, there are also other things you should consider before updating it. Of course, you will know it all once you regularly change it enough on your page.

Furthermore, there is a stark difference between updating the profile pic on a personal account and a business page.

So, this blog will teach you to change your Facebook page profile picture and a few things to consider when you are doing so. Meanwhile, let’s also learn to add a WhatsApp button to the Facebook page while at it.

Can you Change your Facebook Business Page Profile Picture?

Yes, you can change your profile picture on the Facebook business page anytime you want without restrictions.

Additionally, you can update it any number of times. However, whenever you change your profile photo, it will appear as a post in your timeline, and your followers will see it. So, you shouldn’t change it too frequently.

Facebook allows you to do three things with your display image. You can upload a new photo from your Gallery or through the camera, create an avatar, and put frames on such photo if you want.

You can also adjust and edit the thumbnail for that display photo on your page as you like.

Thumbnail means the small profile image (in a circle) you see when visiting a FB page. You can click on it to expand that picture to a full view.

So, after changing the photo, you should also edit the thumbnail to zoom in on a specific part of that image. It is an excellent tool for focusing.

Overall, you can change your business page profile picture anytime you like to anything you want with a simple click. So, let’s learn how to do that in the later sections.

What is the Size of the Facebook Page Profile Picture?

According to Facebook, “Your profile picture displays at 176 x 176 pixels on your Page on computers, 196 x 196 pixels on smartphones, and 36 x 36 pixels on most feature phones.”

Also, FB will crop this image in a circle before showing it in your Profile. So, you shouldn’t add wider pictures with complex details.

That being said, it doesn’t mean you should crop and adjust your profile picture to the dimensions above. FB is smart enough to crop and edit it for you, so you won’t need to worry.

Of course, you should still choose a picture in a square format with 720 px or 960 px (keep it at a 1:1 aspect ratio) to avoid unwanted compression. Also, it is better if the image size is less than 100 KB.

Furthermore, uploading a JPG or PNG file is better since such files don’t need compression. If you have a text or logo, then upload it in the PNG format; otherwise, use JPG format.

Overall, use profile pictures in a 1:1 aspect ratio with less than 100 KB size in a JPG or PNG format for better results on the Facebook page.
