If you need help crafting your social media profile details, check out my article: The Perfect Social Media Description after you read this one.

 

Profile Pictures:
Profile Pictures are usually all the same. You can probably use the same logo sizing and design files for all of the social networks, but I still listed the sizing for each individually. If you want to make one for all of them, make a 1000 x 1000 px square file for your logo but make it also compatible with a circle crop, see image below.

Some channels are square crops, and some are circles, but most of them will be circles soon. The simple reason, circles are friendly and more clickable for your thumbs.

Instagram – Profile Picture:
Instagram only has profile pictures, so setting it up isn’t hard at all.
High Res 1000 x 1000 and make sure the focus is centered for a circle crop.

400 x 400
Facebook has a square crop, so leave your profile picture at the original aspect ratio.
Minimum 180 x 180
These photos will appear 170 x 170 on a desktop site and will appear as 128 x 128 on most smartphones. Business pages have a very familiar look to the personal profile pages and will follow the same rules.
