Social Media Profile Cheat Sheet


If you’ve spent any time on social media, you know that each platform is always evolving. Whether it’s a massive layout redesign or changing a pixel or two, if you want to have your profile looking its best, you’ve got to stay on your toes! It can be hard to find the most up-to-date information. Chances are you’ll spend lots of time digging through pages of results. Even once you find the information you’re looking for, it often varies from source to source. That’s where our Social Media Profile Cheat Sheet comes in.

Meet the cheat sheet

Our cheat sheet covers the main image sizes you’ll need for your profile on the big four of social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. We took care of the research so you don’t have to! By sizing your images according to this sheet, you can ensure:

  • Images will not be stretched, cropped, or pixelated
  • Your profile will have a professional look that will build trust with your audience
  • Images will be optimized perfectly for your audience’s feeds

While there are definitely sizes you can re-use across platforms, there are others that are a little more unique. Be sure to refer to this social media profile cheat sheet when you’re looking to change or share an image on your profile. (You can make your images larger than the given dimensions. As long as you stick to the right ratio…but if you’re unsure, these dimensions are always a safe bet.)

Spend less time trying to find the right sizes and more time on making your social media profiles shine!
