Why are Facebook making this change? They are always working to make Facebook a more engaging place, and they believe that this change leads to more conversations with the people you want to reach.

Small UI (User Interface) design tweaks should be a part of any ongoing proactive marketing A/B (multivariate) testing particularly for CRO (Conversion Rate Optimisation). Google, Facebook and many other online channels regularly deploy psychology of design in their presentation and layout to improve the User eXperience (UX).

    Interestingly there are actually quite a few social media channels that use a round version of the profile picture (avatar icon) such as Google+. Though simple, many businesses still have cut-off images that do not look professional or distort the image and effectively confuse the consumer trying to recognise your brand. Crafting images to suit each particular social media channel for the profile, header image (cover photo) as well as wall posts will ensure an optimal presentation of the images for your brand and appearance to consumers.
