2016 is officially here, and there is a lot to look forward to. For starters, a little birdy said that Twitter just may be increasing their character limit per tweet. Yes, that’s right! Instead of 140 characters, tweets could possibly bump up to a whopping 10,000 characters. Although Twitter has yet to officially announce this, they did update their visual image sizes, along with the rest of the platforms for 2016. Search Engine Journal created a cheat sheet infographic for all your social media sizing needs. But what about timing? When is the best time to post content? HubSpot compiled an infographic for that as well. So no more guessing. Now, you have the best times for posting on each platform. Maybe this year, you can even schedule that video on Facebook, as native videos are preferred over uploads to YouTube. Is your brand ready?

DETAILS, please
Longform tweets: Twitter to bump character limit from 140 to 10,000? Long-winded tweeters rejoice: the character limit on Twitter could rise exponentially from its current 140 to 10,000.

The 2016 social media image sizes cheat sheet (Infographic). Social networks change the dimensions and formats of their images frequently, and it can be difficult to stay updated with what’s what. As you start to plan out your social media campaigns for 2016, it’s imperative you optimize your personal and business’ social media profiles with the right image sizes, if you want to stand out from the crowd.

The best times to post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & other social media sites [Infographic]. Social media is one of the best ways to amplify the great content you’re creating. But it isn’t enough to just post content to social whenever you feel like it. Some times are better than others. So, when’s the best time?

Brands prefer Facebook native videos. Many brands prefer to upload their videos directly to Facebook, according to data from quintly. YouTube videos only make up roughly one-quarter of all videos posted by brands on the social network.
