Social media and visual content go hand in hand, and social networking sites frequently update their social media image sizes and formats to promote a rich visual experience. In general, this has been good for businesses that can keep up; numerous studies demonstrate that visual content is much more engaging than just text.
According to Hubspot, 90% of the information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster by the brain than text is. In effect, this means that whether on your website or on your social media platforms, the images that represent your brand have a much greater impact on your audience than anything else.
As social media platforms add new features and rework existing ones, it's often difficult for graphic designers and inbound marketers to keep track of the dimensions for profile photos, cover photos, and backgrounds. We know it's been a challenge for us!
