Social Media Image Sizes 2017

Optimising social media posts and images can be the difference between having a good social media profile and a great one!

Optimised posts with the correct social media image dimensions are key for creating professional looking profiles. Nobody wants to see a blurry image or one that crops off the best part of the picture when they’re quickly scrolling through their feed.

If you can take the time to get your logo, headers and posts looking their best, you’ve immediately got your brand’s image off to a good start.

To help you out, we’ve created this social media image sizes infographic which includes all the optimised sizes (at the time of writing) for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
