What’s the importance of your Facebook Group cover?

Your Facebook Group cover image is stretched across your entire group page and it’s larger than the average page or profile photo. There are no ‘profile’ pictures here so this will be your shot to make a visual impact right away.


Your group cover photo will actually set the tone for your group and can convey what it is that you’re trying to achieve. A strong cover image gives more credibility to your group and tells people that you’re serious. Moreover, your group image is one of the only things people can see before being granted entry so you need to use to your full advantage. This cover image can also arouse interest in people to join.

The perfect Facebook group cover size

The perfect size is 1640px by 856px and these image dimensions give a 1.91:1 aspect ratio.

If you don’t use these exact dimensions, you could end up having your image cropped and have some of the information cut out.

Before you start creating a new cover it’s important to know the ideal size. Seedtale ensures that you can create at your will without worrying about it too much as we provide you with the guiding lines.

Best Practices for Facebook Group covers

Aside from using the right size there are some good practices you should follow when creating your cover.

Add Exposition

One purpose of your group cover is to get the attention of potential new members and get them interested. One of the ways to do that is to add text that explains the purpose of your group.

‘A community for freelancers, artists and entrepreneurs’

The image explains exactly what’s the purpose of this group.

Use clean, high-quality images

In this example they do list the group name, with the only real image being a dog practically grinning on a pile of toys. Since this is everything the company and its customers could ever dream of, it’s a simple image that’s incredibly effective. It’s a high quality image, too, and it looks clean and well-organized. All the white space in the image works in favor of the image instead of against it.

Include visible branding when possible

If you have a Facebook group that is connected with your business make sure that’s clear in the cover image.

Some business have a their logo as part of their cover.

AdEspresso does that by using their AdEspresso man which is recognizable by their customers.

You can be more subtle too.

This cover image from FightCamp community doesn’t have a big logo on the center or text descriptions but does have a black text ‘FIGHT’ on white background that stands out. as long as your followers know it’s you and what’s the point of the group you’re set.
