Social media trends are hard to predict.

You never know which social platforms will take off in a big way, which won’t, or what changes popular networks will make in the months ahead.

One of the biggest trends we’ve seen in the past year is the importance of visual content.

In 2014, visual-centric social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram continued to see their user count and engagement rate skyrocket.

Today, 70 million photos and videos are shared on Instagram daily and 50 percent of Pinterest’s 30 billion pins were added in the last six months.

Great visuals have become a crucial aspect of online marketing. In fact, 63 percent of social media is made up of images!

How can you create the great images for your business’s social channels?

One of the most important things you can do is keep track of the optimal photo dimensions for all the social media channels you use.
