About Character Counter Tool
The Character Counter Tool helps you to streamline your post content perfectly for all your social media accounts. To ensure the optimal engagement of your posts, we recommend that you stay within the character count limit of 80 characters for Facebook, 100 characters for Twitter and 150 characters for Instagram. We have included the countdown in the character counter tool to let you plan ahead as you craft your social media posts.
Don’t be alarmed by the 80 characters in Facebook posts! The maximum character count for any Facebook post is actually 63,206 characters. But hold on, research has shown that to catch the attention of your followers on Facebook, you should keep your posts short and sweet, the ideal length being 40 – 80 characters. Longer posts may get cut off, which is the last thing you wish to happen. Catch the attention of your followers with a short yet strong content, we’re sure it’s worth it!
Cheers to more characters in Twitter! In 2017, Twitter increase their text limit to 280 characters from their original 140 characters. However, the ideal Twitter post length should be between 71 – 100 characters. Given the huge number of tweets on your followers’ feed, catch their attention immediately with concise content! Here’s a tip: Images don’t count toward the 280 characters limit.
With the rising popularity of Instagram, it is important to maximise your engagement with your followers on this platform. The ideal character count for your Instagram post should fall between 138 – 150 characters. Make sure you include a compelling caption within the character limit to complement your photo or video, and you’re good to go!
