Social media character limits for statuses and captions

All social media platforms have character limits when you’re writing statuses (or captions). Most of them have two limits – one for the overall post, and one before followers will see a “read more” tag or an ellipsis (…) prompting them to click to see the rest.

I found it quite difficult to find a list of when statuses are cut off. So I did some research and made this infographic based on the best information I had available.

I’ve included the limits for the most popular platforms of 2015 in order of popularity: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterst, Google+, Instagram, and Snapchat.

Feel free to share on your own website, I’d appreciate a link back and if you’d drop me a comment to let me know where you’re using it.

I hope you find it useful.
