As a small business owner, you need to present a polished, professional image to the world. This includes your presence on social media.
By knowing the correct sizes needed for your social media posts, your pics will always be seen the way you intended.
So, to have your business always looking its best, here are the social media image sizes that will ensure your images look fabulous on any social platform:
On Facebook, it’s not only your post photos that matter. You must have the right sized profile photo and cover photo for that great first impression.

Even though Twitter expanded their tweet character limit to 280 characters, images are still big here. Images grab attention.

YouTube is dedicated to videos, not photos, but you must pay attention to the photos you can post. These are your channel icon, video thumbnails, and your channel photo. These all require specific sizes.

It’s all about putting your best foot forward on this professional networking site. On your business page, your profile picture is your logo and it appears next to all your posts. You also have a banner photo and photos for your posts. There are a couple of photo restrictions: profile photos cannot exceed 10MB and can only be in JPG, PNG, or GIF formats.
