So, if you are going to publish a new event on Facebook, we recommend that you write these new sizes down in order to get as much out of this visual as possible on your publication.

Why Is It Important To Use The Suggested Images by Facebook?

Although it may not seem important to use the required image sizes on Social Networks, this is very important if you want to achieve your marketing objectives. Why? Because images are the best way to get the attention of your audience, among the numerous publications users see each day on your newsfeeds.

In fact, more than 300 million images are uploaded on Facebook each day and this represents a huge amount of competition in terms of Visual Marketing. In this context, if you use the exact sizes on your cover photos, for your events, this helps your images stand out and get more views.
