Facebook Group cover dimensions

Posted: January 7, 2015 at 11:01 am, Last modified: November 29, 2017 at 2:15 pm

The template above contains the current Facebook group cover dimensions.

As of 11/27/2017, the Facebook group cover size is 1640px wide, and 856px high.

The image is scaled down depending on the screen size, making the invisible parts visible. The areas marked as invisible are invisible on the desktop, but visible on mobile devices.

Things to keep in mind


The group title and description overlap the cover when viewed on a mobile device.

What not to do

The Facebook terms state the following: “Cover photos can’t be deceptive, misleading, infringe on anyone else’s copyright or be in violation of the Pages Terms.”

      Hi Boo, great video! These are the dimensions that are currently correct, but we noticed Facebook made a small change to the aligment of the group title. It sits a bit higher now. We will update the template ASAP.

    Please add the info about a perfect universal size for browser, ios and android apps. The group cover on the smartphone’s facebook app will be cut in the sides.
