cheat sheet social graphic sizes

Nothing looks worse or sloppier than an outdated, incorrectly sized social media graphic, but staying on top of the changing best practices can be challenging too.

Just think. In 2017, the ideal Facebook cover photo size was 820 x 462. But that’s just for a desktop computer. On a mobile phone, 640 x 360 of that cover photo would be displayed. So, you’d spend a good chunk of time designing something beautiful for desktop, that would just get awkwardly cropped on a mobile phone. And for customers looking at your business profile, it would just look thoughtless and unprofessional.

 

Now in 2020, while we have even more phone screen size variations than we did a few years ago, we know we can safely recommend different, ideal recommended sizes (be patient, those are coming up).

 

Getting into the nitty-gritty most of the guides you find online don’t really tell the whole story – If the Facebook cover for desktop is 820 x 312 then the safe area for mobile is actually 556 x 312. I attached an image for this below:

The whole rectangle is desktop, but the orange area is only what you will see on mobile. So, the desktop graphic has to be designed so any important elements are within that mobile area.

But that’s just for a cover photo. What about the profile photo? Timeline photo? Facebook Event photo? And don’t get started with ads – carousel, instant articles, marketplace and more… these all have different recommended sizes that change frequently.

 

That’s why we’ve created a “cheat sheet” for 2020 – by social media platform. Scroll down to see the sizes broken down by platform and type of graphic.
