Imagine Adobe Photoshop with standard templates for #socialmedia images, profiles, covers, banners, posts (e.g. on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) AND the sizes, resolution etc. are always kept actual via e.g. JSON, RSS.

Too much work to create and save your specialty templates?  Or do you want the Photoshop team to look up all the social sharing sites and develop a template for each of them?

Neither... just thinking of solving some work much easier.
Just thinking why e.g. MS Office products deliver templates for professional letters, CVs, financial analysis etc. while PS just offers some basic templates.
Imagine the possibilities if PS offered the same variety...

In which case, please, Photoshop team, please stop using a generic icon and show us graphically the templates we're choosing from.  I'm afraid I loathe the new New Document dialog. It takes up an enormous amount of space to display Adobe Stock Templates, but we don't get to see at a glance either the ones they ship with or the ones we create and save.  They also don't let us organize it for our own use, or create our own template thumbnails. We have to read the tiny print.

And while they're at it, they seriously need to give us an easy—and I mean easy—way to save our preferences and presets so we aren't having to dive into our system folders and so we aren't constantly at risk of losing anything if we have to delete Preferences.

If they're going to be as convenient as, say, Pages or MS Office, then they need to also improve the interface for it no end. I think, however, what they want is for us to adopt Adobe Stock for templates with variety built in along with thumbnails that identify the template. They do offer some free templates along the lines of what you're asking for. Future Splash Social Media set offers "5 standard social media sizes" etc. Angle Social Media Set offers 13 layouts. Botanical offers 13. Zigzag also offers 13. These are free, so I'm betting as much assistance for social media as we're likely to get.

I just downloaded one to see what you get. They cover the relevant social media and based on Smart Objects, you can modify the heck out of these it would appear.  And you'd have to, but there you have something to start with—free. And it goes into your Recent items if you keep using it.

Otherwise they provide us with what they have always provided us—the basic documents that are still in the Legacy New Document dialog—which is the one I typically use since I really feel they've missed the boat on what they could have done with this one. Apparently their cost/benefit ratio came up wanting on the benefit side.  '-}

As they change and evolve time to time, it is hard to make this happen.

Sounds like a money-making opportunity for you to create and publish those templates. If the idea has merit, you profit handsomely.
