New Facebook Page Design & Layout for 2016 (with dimensions)

As of this morning I’ve started seeing a new Facebook Page layout. This is currently being rolled out in stages around the world, or Facebook are testing it with a smaller audience to see whether the new design is more effective than the current. Note that the change is currently user-based and not Page-based, i.e. I can currently see it on every Facebook Page that I visit, whereas under another...
