If you’ve been active on social media for a while, or you just made your accounts, you’ll realize that when it comes social media, visual content and social media go together like French fries and dip sauce, and all comes down to the last pixel.

 

Social media are constantly adding up more features, visual elements, and it seems like every day when you wake up, you see a new element or iteration being made to the social networks you are active, making you go back and figure out the right size of cover images, post images and align your social media marketing according to the latest set of changes.

 

We’ve made it easy for you with the social media image sizes and dimensions guide:

Google +

 

Google+ is a great site to present your company to the world. This not only because of the social aspect, but more importantly, it is because your Google+ account is tied to search engine itself.

  • Profile Photo Size: 250 x 250 pixels.
