At Prominence Global our clients often ask us this. Views will vary but you should at least know what LinkedIn allows so that you can decide what’s right for you.
You probably know that there are limits to how much content you can put into each section of your profile and your posts. But LinkedIn doesn’t show you these limits while you are in edit mode.
Do you know what the limits are? Are you using all the characters available to your advantage?
The character count available is different for nearly every item and it’s hard to keep track of this so we’ve done the research for you and put together a detailed checklist.
Whether you’re just starting to build your profile or are ready to put some time into refining it, this list of LinkedIn Character Limits and Dimensions may be useful. This also applies to status posts, groups, invitations to connect, and company pages.
The character counts include spaces.
Keep this checklist handy for reference as you work through your profile and share content.
That’s a lot to remember so here’s our advice to help you avoid feeling overwhelmed:
● Focus on the most important sections of your profile to start with. These are the headline, the About section and your most recent experience
● Long articles are no longer getting real traction on LinkedIn so you can relax. Start creating short status posts by sharing content that someone else wrote or shared and will be relevant to your audience – just add a brief value-adding comment when you share.
● Comment on other people’s posts as this adds value and doesn’t require a lot of content
● Stay within the character count when you write you status posts otherwise your network will not see your content and your hard work will be wasted
