I think you’ll be surprised to know that, for Facebook its 40 characters. Even less than Twitter!

Social sharing app Buffer and data analytics company SumAll worked together to create a handy dandy infographic that outlines the ideal length of everything online, including Facebook posts, tweets, LinkedIn posts, hashtags, blog posts and email subject lines.
