What's the Ideal Image size and dimensions for Social Media Images

Whether you're posting about brand promotion, a news update, a funny meme, visual content has become a powerful tool for social media. According to research, 65% of the people are visual learners, and 90% of the information that's processed by the brain is visual. 

For a content marketing campaign, knowing exactly what kind of pictures to post, and how often is absolutely crucial. Here are the best sizes for sharing images on social media: 

Facebook: 1,200 x 628

Twitter: 1,024 x 512

Linkedin: 800 x 800

Google+: 800 x 1,200

Pinterest: 735 x 1,102

Instagram: 1,080 x 1,080

However, as you experiment with the different kinds of images, only then you'll realize which works best for you. By default, these two sizes are infallible.

  • Horizontal (landscape) : 1,024 x 512
  • Vertical (portrait): 800 x 1,200

The size limitations we have in place are based on the limitations of each social platform:
