Facebook will increase the size of profile pictures on all business and fan pages on Thursday, according to an email the company sent to page owners. The new profile picture will appear as 160×160 pixels and will sit 23 pixels from the left and 210 pixels from the top of the page. This will not affect pages that use distinct images for their profile picture and cover photo, but pages that incorporate the profile picture into the cover photo — as seen in the example below — should be aware that the change could affect their designs. Pages’ profile pictures will now be presented as the same size as users’ profile photos. Previously, pages’ profile pictures appeared as 125×125 pixels, though some pages noticed Facebook testing the new size earlier this month.

These tabs are important for your social media marketing, because they let you create a much richer user experience on Facebook and control the content that your followers see when they visit your page. So, with the new layout, how do you create your own custom Facebook tabs? Turns out it's not as difficult as you might think. Just follow these 6 simple steps to creating custom Facebook page tabs.

To get you started, here are four essential Facebook apps that allow you to better reach and communicate with your audience, as well as save you time for all those other things you have to do.
One of the smartest features of timeline for brands is the ability to pin posts to the page . The feature is so helpful that it might seem like a no-brainer to decide what to pin . But the catch is, you can only pin one thing at a time . Whatever you most recently pinned shows up at the top of the page, and the rest goes into a hybrid of chronological order with some prioritization of the most engaging posts (of course, things you hide or delete don’t show up). Here’s a list of things you might want to pin to the top of your timeline page on Facebook. What do people encountering your brand for the very first time need to know?
