Having an online presence nowadays is an absolute necessity; and social media is a very quick and personable way to do that. When marketing yourself on social media, it’s extremely important that you appear professional.
Having a cover photo or profile picture that cuts off information definitely does not look professional. It’s a mistake that is easily avoidable, yet I see businesses do it all the time.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to Google “[insert social media of your choice] cover image size” just to make sure i’m designing for the right size. However, I won’t have to do that anymore and you don’t either.
