Social Media Profile Image Sizes (And More)

As promised, here are the dimensions for various social media profile image sizes (and covers, and background images, and…) I decided before dedicating myself to measuring out every social media site pixel by pixel (actually I have great tools for such a thing, but it’s still time-consuming of course) I would consult Google beforehand. In typical fashion, I wasn’t disappointed.

So here is an infographic with all sorts of dimensions for social media sites. These change on a regular basis it seems so I make no promises about the future-proofiness of them. If you notice a change before I do, lemme know and I’ll measure it out and post it. But this info should make our lives easier.

Pinterest Boards Now With Animated Pins

Pinterest Boards Now With Animated Pins

Pinterest Boards Become Lively

You’ve no doubt noticed that when you pin an item to your Pinterest board of choice, the image rotates slightly in and out of place. I imagine this is to spice up what previously was a 2 dimensional format. Along with the feature of you rpin coming at you and then placing itself back onto the page, there have been a few other tweaks on Pinterest. Subtle, but they’re there.

I’m not so sure I like the extra movement, since it really seems to slow things down a little. I don’t pin things like a madman, to be sure; I am very deliberate and selective about my pins.I have certain exclusive criteria I try to adhere to, because not only do I pin items o Pinterest for myself, I have them there for reference for clients and you, who may want to follow a board or two, or follow my diverse set of Pin boards.

For a pin to be repinned, it must jump out and contain something unique. It needs to be special, not just another nice photo of a bathroom, or “whatever.” It should create an impression on its own that has lasting power, and doesn’t fade into the background after a minute. I even created a pinboard labelled Just Because,” just because there are some images that, to me at least, are notable enough to set aside.

What do you think of the animated pins on Pinterest? Are they necessary? Do they add something that was missing? Do they draw you into the site and give it a true interactive feel? Whatever the reason Pinterest decided to liven up the place, it seems a little unnecessary to me, and distracting and as I mentioned, makes the process feel sluggish.  For a site that has problems staying up as it is, I’m not sure bogging it down with HTTP calls or whatever is going to enhance the user experience. But I realize Pinterest is young, and it’s a work in progress.

Pinterest Reveals Some Surprises On and Off-Site

Some Surprises from Pinterest

Several “Pinteresting” things to report today.

Firstly, you may have noticed new categories being added to Pinterest. Tattoos, technology, kids, posters, home decor and cars being among them. It seems that so many people were grouping these things together themselves, that Pinterest decided to make it easier to find them and offer a category for each. I knew I was seeing a lot of tattoos on there, but I’m a bit shocked that it warranted its own category. And the new categories seem (very slightly) slanted towards men’s interests, in fact. I wonder if that’s an attempt at getting more men on Pinterest, or an actual need that is being met? Who knows?

Along those same lines, it seems although WAY more women hang out on Pinterest, more men buy the things they come across. Twenty percent more, in fact. That should change the way marketers have been approaching Pinterest and what they pin on there, knowing that the men are the ones going out and spending the money.
