Twitter's recent profile page redesign reminded me of something I wanted to do a while back but kind of forgot about. Most, if not all, social media websites allow you to customize your profile with a theme, and I think it's about time we created some avatars, backgrounds, and banners to show some fandom pride. I am thinking we can use abstract images, drawings and paintings from books and covers, as well as quotes. 

 

Before we do that, however, it would be useful to figure out the ideal dimensions of the different sites' customization options. I'll start with Twitter because it's fresh in my mind and I don't have much time for research now, but I'd like to add the rest as well.

Yeah, I was planning on including those. Avatars are easy, anyway, I added them mostly for completeness' sake - what I am really interested in are the bigger images.

I am new here and so excuse me if I am not doing this correctly.  I am wanting to upload a cover photo soon.  Is this the same thing as the "Header Photo"?  Appreciate your time.

Yes it is! Just go to your settings and do it.

If you have these sorts of questions in the future, put them on the "tech support" board. :)
