The need for strong social media presence has soared in 2016 and will only increase in prominence in 2017. This is why you really need to keep up to speed with your business / brand / personal profiles, and to optimize them with the right images to represent you!

This year I’ve added in two new platforms to the list. With the growing popularity of Chinese social media networks, it’s only right that I include WeChat and Weibo.
I’ve also added in Ello social media image sizes as well, as I know a few of you guys are starting to use that platform more and more.
Also this graphic displays specific dimensions and we have also added some very quick tips and insights to help you make your mind up on what photo to use on what social media platform.
