Every social media platform has a different array of images needed in order to set it up properly. The common thread is that they don’t often list the size image needed until you are already into the upload process.
Since several of my students and clients recently have requested this info (Hi Marcy!) I’m posting it here where it can be the most accessible for everyone. The infographic is the work of the bold folks over at LunaMetrics. I’d like to thank them for making it freely share-able!
The recent release of two Google based apps has been a true boon to iPad users.
With an iOS version of the Chrome browser the device has massively increased in usefulness. Likewise the newly updated Google+ app is a thing of beauty with a gorgeous user interface that really brings the platform to life. Between the two my iPad has become a truly useful work tool, finally.
So what is my problem? The same problem I had with Facebook for many years: there is no way to control or access Google+ pages using the app. To compound the problem you cannot really switch over to the desktop version ( which would give you thins capability), not even in the new version of Chrome.
Come on Google, there are many of us for whom this would be a boon. It would also be a golden opportunity to show that you can learn from Facebook’s mistakes. What do you say?
Sometimes you just need a basic bit of information.
Today’s tidbit concerns the new Facebook Timeline. There are lots of tutorials for adapting to Facebook’s new way of doing things but I find that most of them leave out one simple and practical bit of information – the size of the images you’ll need to use. So, in the interest of being useful here they are:
Cover Image – 851 x 315 pixels
Profile Image – 200 x 200 pixels (leave a 12 pixel border to allow for Facebook’s auto-cropping)
App Images – 111 x 74 pixels
Keep in mind that these images cannot include price or purchase information, contact info, calls to action or references to Facebook features such as Like or Share.
As many of you are already aware I am a regular contributor to the SixEstate Communications blog. Since I’ve recently had a few requests I decided to add a new page to the website that would act as a directory of my posts. Ranging from Wikileaks to Facebook it’s been an interesting run, and one that I hope has provided useful and interesting commentary for our readers.
