What is a character counter?

The character counter is a 100% free online character count calculator. It is used for counting words, characters, sentences, paragraphs and pages in real time, along with spelling and grammar checking. More specifically, it can be used by students.

For students, there are usually limits or minimums for homework assignments. The same is often true for college applications. Abiding by these can have a major impact on how this writing is graded and reviewed, and it shows whether or not you’re able to follow basic directions. The character counter can make sure you don’t accidentally go over limits or fail to meet minimums that can be detrimental to these assignments.

The second most common use case is for social media managers who are writing articles or copy for ads! It is critical to know when you have gone over the maximum character limit because it will result in your ads/text being cut off! This tool helps you to stay within those bounds.

How to use a character counter?

Trying to craft the perfect Facebook status or tweet? Not sure how many hashtags it takes to improve your post’s engagement?

Stumped on how many characters you can add in a Google or Reddit Ad headline? Questions like these plague social media marketers every day as you strive to share the best content possible.

Social media character limits are constantly changing, so it can be difficult to keep up. At the same time, knowing the ideal length of a Tweet, Facebook post or Instagram caption may improve the likelihood that people will read or engage with it.

To find out the word and character count of your writing, simply copy and paste text into the tool or write directly into the text area. Once done, this tool will display your character count!

Coming soon are limits for text messages (SMS), Yelp reviews, Google reviews, Reddit titles and comments, eBay titles and descriptions as well as many others. Knowing these limits, as well as being able to see as you approach them, will enable you to better express yourself within the imposed limits and not have your text cut off without knowing it.

In order to make your life a little easier, we’ve put together a complete guide with the character length limits for all the major social networks.
