Social Media Image Sizes

Did you know that social media content with images are 40 x more likely to be shared than content without? Yep - it’s true what they say - a picture is worth a thousand words.

But there is nothing worse that seeing a “Professional Business” page with non-optimized images. Grainy, blurry, or miss cropped images can cause your reader to feel uneasy.

The difficult part is making sure your images are the right size for each social media network, so they look professional and have the most impact on your audience.

Never Fear! I’ve included the image sizes below.
