    This was your best infographic yet! To have all these sizes in one place is amazing. I had to initially look all over to find the sizes for twitter, FB etc. Very helpful!

    This is great, I’ll share it with the designers I work with here at the MAC. Is it possible to get a file so we can print out a large version? I’d love to have it on a wall.

    I love the graphic too, however when printing it only downloads as one page, with only one part being printable. Any suggestions?

  4. says

    Simply awesome, great work.

    Will you be updating this anytime soon? Some changes recently occurred on Facebook, it will be nice to have an updated graph.

    Great work again!

    Essential cheat sheet. Thanks for sharing, Louise!

    Just to clarify – the word “cheet” in title and Facebook App/Tab image minimum size 111×741 in your cheat sheet look a little weird to me. Are they just plain typos or something special?

  6. says

    I love your infographics. May I post this on my blog with proper credit and a link back to you? (Saw this on the buzz club and already referenced back to it- great tool)

      Thanks! For sure I don’t have everything on there, just the most commonly requested sizes. I will go ahead and add that, as well as the group cover photo, in the text!

    Thanks for posting this. It is so helpful!

    If we want to post the same images on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (ideally at the same time), do you recommend making them all square? Do you think the square sizing is going to last? All of the images I want to post are horizontal rectangles. I know there are Instagrams apps I can use to add a border to make the horizontal image square, but when I use it to share the image, the extra white on the top and bottom does not look so good on Facebook.

    I would love to hear what you recommend.

    Thanks and best wishes,

      Hi Jennifer!
      Square is what I use. Yes, I think due to the increasing use of smartphones, square will be with us for a while.

      I suggest posting the horizontal images without the white borders to Facebook and Twitter, instead of going thru IG. You can schedule them at different times with a scheduling tool. Horizontal is perfect for Twitter, and also good for Facebook mobile users. Otherwise I’d prefer square for FB. But horizontal is fine, and much better than having the white borders.

    The information came in handy when I was trying to set up accounts with all these social media platforms. This makes my work much easier. Thank you so much.
