This infographic goes over the optimal social media post length for a variety of platforms and accompanies a blog post article expounding on why that is. From Buffer and SumAll, 'The Internet is a Zoo: The Ideal Length of Everything Online' describes how long every piece of content should be to accurately get the message across.

The social media post length chart covers character count for networks like Facebook, Twitter and Google + in addition to areas such as hashtags, email subject lines, title tags, domain names and paragraphs in general. It also goes into word count for blog headlines, LinkedIn posts and blog posts. For channels like YouTube, podcasts, Tedx talks and Slideshare it also discusses how many minutes they should be.
