According to Bufferapp Tweets with images receive 18% more clicks, 89% more favorites and 150% more retweets. Socialbakers, who looked at the top 10% of posts made by more than 30,000 Facebook brand pages, discovered that posts with photos saw the most interactions 87% of the total.

I use the following two Social Media apps fairly often - Facebook and Twitter, for both business and personal accounts. Quite often I will need to find the right image for a Facebook update, change a cover or profile photo, add event images or even do some Facebook advertising. These days most of the posts that I add to Twitter will have some form of image and the same applies to Twitter advertising. One of my preferred apps for creating these Social Media images is Canva and before I start creating these images I often find myself typing keywords into Google along the lines of, "what is the image size of a Facebook cover photo".

The other day, whilst trying to find the "ultimate guide", I came across a very useful resource. Buffer have created The Mega Guide to Ideal Image Sizes for Your Social Media Posts: Guidelines for All 6 Major Social Networks, a resource that looks at the top 6 Social Media networks and offers up a cheat sheet on the optimum sizes for your Social Media images. They reckon that they will return to this page to update it as and when required. So, head over there now, bookmark the page and start creating optimum images on your Social Media channels.
