UPDATE: As of Fall, 2017 Facebook has changed the way their page header images scaled on mobile and desktop. We are now recommending that Facebook Header images be 820 x 462 pixels. Further we are also recommeding that you include any important elements or text within the middle third, as the top and bottom will be cut off on desktop. See examples below take from the recent buffer blog on this topic.
