Social media is an ever-changing beast. You almost can’t have a business in this day and age without a presence in the online world and specifically, at least, one of the big eight social media sites. Gone are the days where only teens frequented MySpace to chat with friends. Social media is here to stay, and people are looking online for your business so you’d better present your best.


As humans, we are drawn to images, and good ones at that, so if your social media pages reveal pixelated or skewed photos, it reflects poorly on you (especially as a photographer!) and your business. This handy infographic created by shows you eight social media sites and the image size requirements for each so that you can optimize your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, YouTube, Google+, and Pinterest accounts. For each site, the infographic shares the current, correct dimensions and some tips for each site so your images always look their very best.

*Note: one of our readers pointed out that the Instagram size should be 1080px. I notified Jamie at Make a Website Hub and he said he will be fixing and uploading a new, updated chart later today.*
