INFOGRAPHIC: The Ultimate Complete Final Social Media Sizing Cheat Sheet

In June of this year, we published an infographic listing all of the sizing information for images on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest. It was a wildly successful piece of content, totally blowing our expectations out of the water. Unfortunately, while its popularity has flourished, nearly every social network instituted changes to their image sizes, rendering most of the information on the infographic out of date.

We knew we needed to update the information on the cheat sheet, but we weren’t comfortable with simply adjusting one or two figures on the blog post and leaving it as-is. We’d also received a lot of feedback, both on the design and information it contained. We decided to redesign the entire sheet and incorporate a few more social networks.

We also decided to permanently redirect the old sheet here, so that shared tweets, pins, likes, and so on, would lead to the correct sizing dimensions. Additionally, as sizing changes are implemented across social networks, we’ll actively update this sheet – meaning that if you use the embed code at the bottom to share this sheet on your own site, the image will automatically update with changes as they are rolled out. No more out-of-date information.

So, without further ado, here it is – the ultimate, complete, final social media sizing cheat sheet. As before, you can find a simple text list of the pixel dimensions at the bottom. Save this sucker on your hard drive and never Google ‘Facebook cover photo size’ again.

Also, for Instagram:

What Size Does Instagram Save Photos As?

Instagram overrides your image settings but only for the upload versions of the image. Instagram uploads a small file about 8.5″ square at 72dpi but then saves the largest version possible for your device. However, if you import a photo to Instagram instead of using a photo taken with the phone the max resolution to be saved is 612×612.

[Social Media] Facebook now offers geo-targeted scheduled posts

This is a huge deal. On a page with 400 fans, you can now schedule a post.

Even better, you can schedule it and geo-locate. Here’s what is looks like:

You can schedule the post. You can also click on “Public” and then locate the post to a city. At Colgate we have alumni events that happen all over the country. So we can schedule and locate the post to a city.

If we want to get really fancy, we can promote it. This is pure awesomeness.

Have you used it?

[Social Media] Geo-Targeting on Facebook

If you’re in California looking to buy a new purple unicorn and the national company that you like who sells purple unicorns posts a special Facebook offer at their stores in New York, what happens? You become an annoyed purple-unicorn-less Californian.

Geo-targeting is a helpful tool available on Facebook Pages. With a few simple clicks, you can customize posts based on country, state/province, city and language.

Just a few examples of how you can use geo-targeting:

  • Sharing information sensitive to time zones
  • Offering information in different languages
  • A/B testing by region or offer (compare conversion and engagement rates)
  • Localized stunts or events

And here’s how you do it:

  1. When posting a status, link, photo or video on your Page, select the ‘Everyone’ drop down menu below the text box and click ‘Customize’.
  2. Enter the country of choice (and optional filter by state/province and city).
  3. Enter an optional language of choice. Press “Okay.”
  4. Post your geo-targeted status to be seen only by those specified in preferences. After you finish posting, the custom preferences will clear and subsequent posts will display to all audiences unless otherwise specified.
