Most of us are familiar with sharing photos on social networks. It started on Facebook and has exploded with the arrival of Instagram. This infographic aims to explore the impact of a picture-based social network model.

Studies show photo posts on Facebook are the most engaging. In traditional media, the highest percentage of people who look at a newspaper look at the pictures, while a lower percentage actually read the articles. The same holds true for Facebook.

The basics of any social media account can be quickly mastered, but figuring out the heights and widths of all the images you will need to make your social outposts look awesome is a time-consuming and, unfortunately, often instantly forgettable business.

And it gets a heck of a lot more complicated when you start rolling out your Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube channels, and more.
