Accurate as of February 2018

Graphic sizes for social media platforms seem to be ever-changing, the struggle is real! Whether it’s for a news update, brand promotion, video or a quote, visual aids play a major role in the success of conveying your brand through social media.

It’s not always quite as simple as copying and pasting an image from one profile to another due to the specific dimension requirements per platform, so that’s where we come in.
