Social Media Image Sizes for 2017

Social Media Image SizesLast year I wrote a post sharing the 2016 social media image sizes. As it often happens with social media, some things have changed. Below is an updated list of social media sizes. Many of the sizes have remained the same, but I have noted in red where there has been a change. There is also a word document at the end of this post if you’d like to download a copy and have it handy at your desk (the doc only has the 2017 sizes).
