Facebook Cover Photo Compliance Tool

A Facebook page cover photo is only allowed to have up to 20% of its surface area to contain text. Have you ever tried to estimate what percent of your cover photo contains text? I know it hurts my brain.

Struggle no more! Use this simple tool to test your Facebook cover photo and get a much better idea of what percentage you are using.

Test Your Facebook Cover Photo

Below you can see an example of the tool using Glopilot’s cover photo.
