Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet and templates

Social Media Image Sizes Cheat Sheet Infographic

I spotted this really useful Social Media Image Sizes infographic earlier on twitter. It has all the image dimensions and file size restrictions for all the major social media platforms. I thought I’d post it to the blog, if only so I know where to find it when I need it, but I think you’ll find it useful.
Social Media Image Sizes

Facebook

Profile image: 180x180px but note that Facebook will also generate a 32 x 32 version as a thumbnail which will be used throughout Facebook.

Cover Photo: 851 x 315px – if you make it any smaller then it will be scaled to this size. For best results upload an RGB JPG file less than 100kb. Images with a logo or text may be best as a PNG file.

Uploaded / Shared Images: The recommended size is 1,200 x 630 px. These will appear in feed at a max width of 470 px and will scale to this size if you upload a smaller image.

Linked In

Our blog now has a Twitter Account.

Screen Shot 2016-01-04 at 21.34.19I’ve been using Twitter client sites for years now but never got around to setting it up for my own IT blog.  This evening I have finally created a Twitter Account to go with this blog. If you follow ITMAN101 on Twitter I’ll let you know whenever we post a new blog or have any news to share.

Here’s our very first tweet…

 

 


How can I see what is trending in the iPhone Twitter App?

It’s often useful to keep an eye on what’s trending on Twitter but in the latest versions of the iPhone Twitter App it’s not immediately obvious where to find what’s trending.

It’s actually really simple when you know.

How to see whats trending in the Twitter App.

At the top of your timeline screen just under where is says Home you’ll see 3 little dots. This is an iPhone App standard way to say that there’s more to see if you swipe left. The trick is to swipe left as shown by the arrow on one of the tweets not on the header itself.

Once you’ve swiped left you’ll see the ‘What’s Trending’ screen:

You can then click on one of the hashtags to see what people are saying or return to your hime page by swiping right or just press the timelines button.
