Pins, Roundups, and Graphics (Oh My..)

Keeping up with best practices for social media feels like a Sisyphean task. I only deal with Facebook and Pinterest professionally and I still can't keep up. Of course, that's only partially my fault because the 'best' is ever-changing.


These pins are all 600 x 1260, which was 'best' as recently as a few months ago.

     



Now, the 'best' pins are 600 x 900. So that's what I'm making.

    


    



I haven't noticed any difference between pins with text in a circle, like the ones above, versus stretching across the length of the pin, like the ones below. Until someone tells me otherwise, I'll keep mixing things up.

     



And, of course, the vertical format that is so important on Pinterest is terrible for Facebook. Here are the Facebook graphics I made for the May and June crafts. They're both 315 x 600, which as far as I know, is still 'best.'

   


I can't imagine trying to keep up with all the other platforms as well. Pinterest and Facebook are more than enough to keep me on my toes!

As always, I made all of the graphics using PicMonkey. They make dealing with the ever-changes sizes SO much easier. I love PicMonkey!
