Linkedin post character limit

June 18, 2021

Everyone who works with content in social media knows that it can be quite a challenge. First, you need to find an interesting topic, describe it in an attractive way, and then promote it to reach your audience. Sounds like lots of work, right?

As if coming up with a topic and the best social media schedule for your content isn't hard enough, you also have to grapple with character limits on social media posts that you should use to promote that content.

And here's the good news:

the LinkedIn post character limit has just been increased to 3000 characters!

Ok, Postfity did that as well, so you can use more than twice as many characters when planning your posts :)

Currently, the LinkedIn post character limit is 3,000 characters. As a reminder, previously it was 1,300 characters. So you have 1700 more characters to express your thoughts and show your business better!

However, remember the golden rules:

  • write when you actually have something to communicate
  • keep your content attractive
  • don't force it - you don't have to use all 3000 characters
