Social Media Dimensions (as of 8/1/2018)


Tracking down dimensions for social media post across 20 different forums and websites can be tedious - so here's a guide with some helpful templates. Unfortunately, these will likely be irrelevant in another month when one of these sites is sure to make changes :)

If you'd like to skip this pretty formatting and head straight to a sweet spreadsheet by Sprout Social, click here!

Profile Image

Optimal Size: 180 x 180 pixels

Cover Photo

Optimal Size: 851 x 315 pixels

Post Images

Optimal Size: 1,200 x 630 pixels

Shared Link Images

General Note: Filetype should be .jpg. If you upload something that is bigger than the optimal size, it will be resized to fit.



Profile Image

Size: 110 x 110 pixels (but it will crop the image as a circle--watch your corners!)


Square: 1080 x 1080 pixels

Vertical: 1080 x 1350 pixels*

Horizontal: 1080 x 566 pixels*

*Note that when you upload an image that is not square, the thumbnail will still crop to a square.



Profile Photo

Size: 400 x 400 pixels

Header Photo

Size: 1500 x 500 pixels

In-Stream Photo

Profile Photo

Size: 800x800 pixels


Most common sizes: 1920x1080 or 1280x720

Video Thumbnails

Size: 1280x720

Channel Cover

This one is tricky, bear with me:

  • Full size cover is 2560x1440

  • For viewing on a computer monitor, the size is 2560x423

  • For viewing on Tablet, the size is 1855x423

  • For viewing on any device, the size is 1546x423

So here's what that means. Upload an image that is 2560x1440, but fit all the important information within 1546x423. See the image example below:
