Breakdown of All Social Media Background, Cover Image and Profile Picture Sizes 2013


Social media background and profiles have evolved over time.

I remember when YouTube and MySpace permitted nearly full HTML customization of their channels.

Well, times have changed, and editing profile pictures is now just a simple click and upload procedure.

Looking like a social media veteran has never been as easy as it is now as long as you can effectively setup your social media profile images. For this reason, it’s important to understand the necessary size requirements for each social media background, cover image and profile picture so that you too can look like a pro too.

That’s why I created this quick breakdown of all current social media image sizes. They all have a specific purpose so it is important that they all look clean when you setup your profiles. For a full breakdown, check out this detailed infographic or view it below.
