Social Media Image Sizing Guide 2020

2020 Image Sizing Guide: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest Some might say size doesn't matter, but it totally does, especially when it comes to social media images. The size of your images on your social media can make a huge difference in the performance of your posts. Unfortunately, every social media platform; Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest is a wee bit different! Sizing images wrong is one of the many common mistakes we see businesses make all the time. If there is one thing that makes us and social media managers all over the world squirm in our seats, it's incorrectly sized images. Today we will explore the current 'correct sizes' in 2020 for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest. So here's what Rocket Fuel Design and the social media sites themselves suggest when sizing your images: Facebook: Lucky and unlucky for you, Facebook has a whole range of image sizes. Which allows for a lot of flexibility when posting in the feed, but, requires you to be a bit more precise when it comes to sizing images for your profile picture and cover photo. Profile Pictures: Your profile picture on Facebook is one the first things people will see when they search for your business on Facebook, so making sure you display it correctly is super important.

That's why we suggest that you use less text-heavy profile pictures and more image-based profile pictures! Your logo and just your logo is a great way to make sure your business looks smart and identifiable. Here at Rocket Fuel Design, we don't include the text - RFD - from our...
