Social media is ever-changing. The networking platforms’ newsfeed algorithms are constantly updated. Topic and engagement trends evolve quickly. And because social media platforms are frequently updating their layouts, recommended dimensions for profile, cover and other images change on a whim.
It can be tough for social media marketers to keep up and optimize their company’s social presence. Yet, using images that are the right size is one of the most important things you can do to put your company’s best foot forward on social media.
Potential customers tend to look at businesses on social media as a way to check the company’s legitimacy. And your profile pictures, cover photos and other images are the first thing customers and clients will see on your company pages. To look clean and professional, all of your images need to be sized correctly – in resolution and dimension – or you may risk looking like you aren’t putting effort into your company or brand.
To make things easy, we’ve created an updated 2018 Social Media Dimensions Blueprint, with best image sizes for Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. Bookmark the 2018 guide for future reference or download the pdf below! Please enjoy and remember to post responsibly!
