2017 ConnecTheDot Social Media Cheat Sheet

The Cheat Sheet of Social Media Advertising Sizes on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube

People retain more of what they see than what they read — visuals transmit information more quickly and improve overall comprehension.

That means creating highly engaging and attractive images are essential for social media success, but this is even more important when you are running paid campaigns. Your clients are counting every dollar.

Part of creating high-performing ads is making sure your images are the correct dimensions. And with various different sizes needed for each social media platform and fairly frequent updates of these sizes, it can be difficult to keep up-to-date.

When you’re selecting cover photos, shared images, and other social media assets, knowing the basic image dimensions might not cut it. What if you want to make sure a certain part of your cover photo isn’t obstructed by your profile photo? And what’s the difference between shared link thumbnails, or in-stream photos — are the dimensions different for those?

As it turns out, sizing images correctly for social media is no simple task. Even just among your Facebook marketing, photo dimensions vary according to where and how it’s shared — from cover photos, to timeline images, to profile pictures.

But if you’re looking for a detailed guide on social media image sizes, you’re in luck — here at ConnecTheDot, we created the 2017 Social Media Cheat Sheet Infographic to ensure we have you covered. It’s a valuable resource to keep on-hand for the next time you’re designing or selecting visual content for your social channels.
