Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google + profile image specs
This could be the most frustrating time to set up social media accounts – Twitter is mid changeover to a new look, Facebook’s Timeline is ready to drop for brands any day now, YouTube just had a refresh and Google+ is new on the scene. So if you’re looking for profile image specs or background specs for Twitter, Facebook, YouTube or Google+, here’s your one stop shop!
Profile image: 540 x 180 Thumbnail: 200 wide (allow 12 for border)
Profile stream: 97 x 68 (5 images required)
Landing tab image: 800 x 500
UPDATE: The new Timeline cover photo specs have been released by Facebook.
Cover images must be at least 399 pixels wide and may not contain:
Price or purchase information, such as “40% off” or “Download it at our website”
Contact information, such as web address, email, mailing address or other information intended for your Page’s About section
- References to user interface elements, such as Like or Share, or any other Facebook site features
- Calls to action, such as “Get it now” or “Tell your friends”
Profile image: 128 x 128 (scaled down to 48 x 48 in stream)
Larger than 48k but no more than 700k
Background: 1280 width, 66 – 194 for the left hand side of the background [Twitter fixed width of 865px]
