Not to be missed: The ultimate social media image sizing cheat sheet

By if-admin | March 15, 2013

If you have anything to do with a branded social media profile, then this blog is guaranteed to make your life easier. When I stumbled across this absolute delight of an infographic, courtesy of LunaMetrics, I immediately saved it down on the system. Do it now…

The infographic contains all the latest details on social media sizing, from your avatars and cover photos right through to the images you post onto your news feed or in your sponsored stories. You will never find yourself frustrated by cut-off images in your Facebook feed ever again.

Amidst this visual content revolution that is being played out on social media, you need to make sure you are staying ahead of the curve and doing it properly. Three key points to remember when it comes to posting photos or pictures on social media platforms:

1)      Use appropriate resolution images to ensure quality

2)      Source vivid, engaging images

3)      Be aware of copywriting laws

As a final thought, I’d like to share a quote from Jeremiah Owyang of Altimeter Group with you. “Visuals are a response to the vast amount of information we’re exposed to. Visual is an easy “snapshot” way to absorb and grasp the information”. So make sure you are making your social media visuals work hard for your brand.
