Have you ever wanted a complete cheat sheet when it comes to design and sizing for all of these social media platforms? You know, something that easily spells out the dimensions for your Facebook Cover photo, profile photo or know how many characters are seen in the about section? Look no further because I have very good news for you. I just discovered a terrific Infographic which was produced by TentSocial, a social marketing strategy service, and it might be one of the most useful graphics you will find on the ‘Net. Bookmark this post and pass it along to others.
Here is a quick preview of what you will find below:
I mentioned Facebook as an example and the graphic below has just about every size and shape of content and advertising to assist you moving forward. Want to know the perfect size for your cover photo (851 x 351 pixels), profile photo (160 x 160) or Ad Title in characters (25). Look no further.
A thorough presentation of specific Twitter sizes for items such as Header Image, visible backgrounds, shared image and shared videos.
A great schematic was created for those of you who use Google+ . Want to know the exact cover photo size (2120 x 1192), its in there. The diagram will also tells you that the radio needs to be 16:9. Want to know the best size of your photo (270 x 270 pixels of course) and your status update within Google + can be up to 10,000 characters.
You might think you do not need to know every detail, but trust me, now or later, you will want to look it up and refresh your memory when you are updating, redesigning or creating these pages for the first time. It is that helpful.
The graphic also includes every visual you need to know about Pinterest, Instagram, as well as your LinkedIn page as well.
The goal of this blog is to always educate, inform and entertain and I know this is a terrific practical tool. I am happy to share it with you. Enjoy.
