This is test 5 of trying to find the best social media image size and composition that will work for more than one social media site, a single image that will work for social sharing images on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
This is a test to see how photos with faces affect where Facebook and Twitter crop images that are not their optimal orientation. Is it possible to create an image that will work for Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter sharing?
I’ll see if it makes a difference if I add a photo across the top.
Results: Facebook showed the part of the image that had the photo, from the top of the image. So Facebook must have smart cropping of images. Twitter, which I thought had smart cropping, did not grab the photo in the image, instead, it grabbed from what looks to be the center of the image. I’m going to test it again with another photo with another face.
