Guide to social media image sizes [infographic]

Here are all the image sizes you need to optimize your social profiles for Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and more...

Last week we published a very handy guide to social media image sizes on our sister website ClickZ UK. 

If you click on the above link, you can see a much larger version of the infographic, but we also thought it was worth sharing here at SEW.

All of the sizes are in pixels (width x height), and everything is up-to-date as of 2 December 2015.

Please let me know if there’s anything you think we need to add, this is very much a work in progress. Under the infographic you’ll find the text from the infographic which we’ll update regularly when changes are made to the various social networks.

In no particular order, here are the various image sizes for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube.
