Social Media Cover Banner Dimensions

I rarely have to make social media graphics but whenever I do, the first step is to track down the specs. The following specs are current for Spring 2015.

Responsive Layouts and Design

For the most part, the graphics should be built from the center out - keeping a visual safety zone in the middle. Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn mask the images depending on the viewport size.

HD / Retina displays

I double the resolution for all the graphics. All the services will resize the file for what they need so it’s good to ensure the graphics will look crisp on HD displays. This might future proof them as services add support for HD displays.
