Social Media Dimensions Blueprint

Social media dimensions are constantly changing. With every tweak or page layout change for Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+, YouTube, etc., social media marketers must stay up-to-date to get the most out of their social profiles. When creating images for social media, making sure you know the correct sizes for cover/header images, profile images and more, is essential.

The latest change in social media dimensions came with Twitter's latest redesign. While Twitter suggests that you upload an image that is 1500 x 500px, some have found that the optimal size seems to be 1500 x 421px. This cover image in particular is tricky because not all areas are visible. The profile image now covers part of the cover image and some parts aren't visible on mobile.

Use this newly updated, easy to use sizing guide to make sure you're using the space on your social media profiles to full advantage. Bookmark it for future reference or download the pdf below!
