The Latest Social Media Image Sizes For 2018

2018 image sizesWhen it comes to social media, the desired user graphics are a moving target that change often. One day your page and profile images look great, and the next day they’re all squished or cropped. Here’s the latest image sizes from the 5 major social networks thanks to Symphonic Distribution.

Facebook

Here are the current recommended Facebook image, ad, and video sizes:

  • Facebook cover image: 851 x 315
  • Facebook profile image: 170 x 170
  • Facebook highlighted image: 1200 x 717
  • Facebook ads: 1280 x 628
  • Facebook native video: 1280 x 720
Twitter

Tweets with images get 150% more engagement, so every tweet should have one for maximum effect.

Here are the current recommended Twitter image, ad, and video sizes:

  • Twitter cover image: 1500 x 500
  • Twitter profile image: 150 x 150
  • Twitter native video: 1280 x 720
  • Twitter image in stream: 506 x 253
Instagram

Remember that Instagram has three orientations now available: landscape, square, and portrait.

Here are the current recommended Instagram image, ad, and video sizes:

  • Instagram profile image: 150 x 150
  • Instagram square image: 1080 x 1080
  • Instagram landscape image: 1080 x 566
  • Instagram portrait: 1080 x 1350
LinkedIn

Here are the current recommended Linkedin image, ad, and video sizes:

  • LinkedIn cover image: 1536 x 768
  • LinkedIn profile image: 400 x 400
  • LinkedIn shared image: 550 x 375
  • LinkedIn link image: 520 x 272
Google+

Google+ usage isn’t what it used to be, but it does have the advantage of being quickly indexed in a Google search.

Here are the current recommended Google+ image, ad, and video sizes:

  • Google+ cover image: 1080 x 610
  • Google+ default display position: 1084 x 364
  • Google+ interests image: 253 x 142
  • Google+ native video: 1280 x 720
  • Google+ image in post: max 2048 x 2048

Remember that sometimes the ratios are more important than the actual sizes. In other words, Facebook recommends a cover image of 851 x 315, which is a ratio of 2.7:1. That means that a graphic of 1000 x 370 (still a 2.7:1 ratio) would work just as well.

Also, most social networks want square profile pictures (i.e. 170 x 170) otherwise your profile picture will look like a funhouse mirror.
