I’ll admit it. I can be a little obsessive about managing the imagery on my social media accounts.
I like them all to be consistent. Meaning my profile photo on Twitter should match my profile photo on Facebook. It builds a strong online identity. People will recognize me easily no matter the platform. If the platform has the option for a cover photo, I try to keep the imagery seasonal, and it has to be pretty. I’m less concerned that the cover images be consistent. I like to change up my self-branding every 3 or 4 months.
Thanks to Gravatar, keeping my WordPress related images consistent is very easy. But my online presences is expanding to more and more platforms, and I’m starting to miss a few slots during my quarterly re-brands. So here is a quick checklist of the places I need to update. You’re welcome, future me.
- Linked In
- Google ( 2 different accounts )
Am I missing any?
