Why do the images get blurry when posted on Social media?

Recommended Posts

I created thread before but haven't been here for long time and wasn't sure on responses. 

So if anyone knows perhaps I'm doing a setting wrong or whatever.

Anyhow, I create images on designer on 300dpi and export as png.

Now, on my site or websites shall i say the clarity is fine, seems good resolution. But if posted images on FB or twitter the images are not as sharp anymore infact kind of blurry.

I used to make images on canva and when posted on social media they remain super sharp, so why does the affinity files become 'low-resolution' looking when posted on social media?

Are the "canvas" images .png as well, and do those old images remain sharp if you repost them now?
