How Many Characters for Social Media Business Pages?

I’ve just spent a great deal of time researching the number of characters allowed on the business pages for the significant social media sites. I have been looking for content limits for the “About” section, and while this is not the only opportunity to tell your story on a profile page – with headings and banners requiring attention and creativity to maximize potential – it was not easy to find answers to this question.

I recently concluded a complete messaging revamp for an exciting company in the Cloud strategic advisory space. As part of any messaging overhaul, the tagline (or company slogan) must also be reviewed for relevance, because these three (or four or five) little words say so much about a company, encapsulating what you do with the minimal amount of words – words that appear everywhere.

Interestingly, when researching company slogans (see below) I noticed that the...
