2:3 Mobile & 1:1 Square
Any content tailored for mobile, including Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, can use either 2:3 vertical sizing and/or a 1:1 square format.
We recommend using both. For example, you can use a 1:1 square video to publish on Instagram, but you can make a 2:3 promo for your Instagram Story.
2:3 Facebook Timeline (820 x 462 pixels)
Recently, Facebook rolled out a new feature for publishing video on your page’s timeline. This is a great feature to communicate a strong message in a very simple, catchy format.
The recommended format for a Facebook Timeline video is 820 x 462 pixels.
Finding the right format for your video will:
- increase the number of impressions on your content
- and engage your audience to stick around for more content.
Now that you have this video size guide for social media, go forth and make better videos! And happy videoing!
Thank you for reading!
