Social Media Ad Specs Guide [Updated]

It's a question that always comes up with every new brief that receives the creative agency, the client or the account that is going to launch the campaign: "How big do the creatives have to be?" No matter how many campaign have you launched, that question will always remain the same.

And for big questions, big answers too. Let's go deeper in ad specs and ratios for image and video for almost all social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google, Youtube, Pinterest, TikTok, Snapchat, Linkedin and Twitch.

It will no longer be necessary to search for "Facebook ad specs" or "Google Ad Measures" every time you are asked or you get lost in a sea of size guides and maximum weights. We summarize the most used ad formats for the platforms that should not be missing in your or your client's digital strategy. Even if your need is more specific, for example, carousel ad sizes on Facebook or Collection ad sizes on Pinterest.

As for Google, we have not only covered Youtube and video size, but we have detailed the size of each type of banner recommended. And speaking of videos, being a guide to 2023 specs we couldn't miss out Tik Tok, nor recent formats like Collections on Snapchat.

This is the guide's index:

If you haven't launched a campaign on TikTok yet, you should be about to. At the moment, they are pigeonholed to one type of audience (very young) and one type of target (pure awareness, upper funnel) that works very well. But we recommend that you don't use it exclusively for those. From our experience, for traffic campaigns and in age groups +25 it also has good results. We recommend you to use the following specifications:


Top View Format:

  • Aspect Ratio 9:16, 1:1, 16:9

Takeover Format

  • Aspect Ratio 9:16, 1:1, 16:9

In addition, you should be aware of the TikTok Safe Zone. The TikTok Safe Zone is an area in the centre of the screen where content and creatives are easily and safely viewed. To find out which is the safe zone for your content, you can plan your ads in the ad preview tool in TikTok. Make sure that text and logos are within the safe zone. All elements that appear outside the safe zone, be it text, creative or logos, can be cut off or covered.

The size of the safe zone is determined by the dimension, whether vertical, horizontal or square; and the length of the ad's caption or any additional formatting usage. The longer the caption, the smaller the safe zone.

TikTok requires minimum resolutions of ≥540 x 960p, ≥960 x 540p, or ≥640 x 640p depending on the aspect ratio, but we advise you to use the highest resolution possible while keeping the file size low. As long as the file size is less than 500 MB, the content will be of good quality.



Stories as we understand them today have their origins in Snapchat and their positioning continues to revolve around this vertical format. At the same time, they have grown to incorporate rectangular formats and their audience also responds well to conversions and lower funnel. They have recently launched dynamic ad campaigns, if you haven't tried it yet, we recommend it (we have already launched it with great sales results!).
