    Obviously love the cheat sheet. Not sure what to make of the Twitter stats except that a lot of people are using Twitter from Mobile devices, which we already knew. The mention of 200 million active Twitter users is interesting. I wonder how they came across that number? Definitely want to look more in to SlideShare as a content sharing device. It clearly seems to be rising in value.

    The social media sizing cheat sheet is brilliant. I’ve immediately downloaded it to my computer for later (and I think pretty much constant) use. I just hope that none of the social networks mentioned in the cheat sheet will do a redesign to their site and that they will change the resolution and image sizes of their visuals so that the cheat sheet could be used for a long time.

    The sizing cheat sheet is awesome. I have been looking for these sizes but different sites suggested different dimensions. This one piece sheet will be useful for all of my social accounts.
