Most social media platforms include another visual option to enhance your profile.
In addition to your profile image, you can add a cover image to increase the visual
appeal of your profile.
As social platforms have evolved, they have become more and more visual. Fortunately,
you're part of one of the state's most beautiful and historic subjects, which makes
high-quality cover images a snap. Use your social profile cover images to showcase
your unit or the university itself and to affiliate your unit closely with the easy-to-recognize
imagery of our iconic campus.
Take the opportunity to add a high-quality, representative image in social platforms
such as Twitter and Facebook. Strive to showcase yourself with high-resolution images
that are crisp and clear and fit the clearly defined space well. Crop your image accordingly
to make your visual focused and dynamic.
Size Your Snaps
Photos should always be high resolution and accurately sized for the dimensions of
your social media profile. Optimal sizes for each platform change from time to time.
A quick Google search will keep you in check and make sure your sizes are correct
for the most current versions of social media platforms.
Accessibility Best Practices
Social media platforms do not currently allow you to add alternative text to cover
photos. If the cover photo includes imagery that's important to understanding the
purpose of the account, that information should be incorporated into a pinned post
or account bio.
