Though Facebook profile and business page, both has detailed professional bio section, but writing this short and crisp Facebook bio right should be your first priority. The intro section has a cool option of setting the bio as temporary or permanent.

  • Facebook is one of the first platforms where colleagues and friends out of work or school try to reach out to you. Tell them if you currently don’t use it much, as is the case nowadays with many people.

  1. Hashtags in your instagram bio, how does that work? Is it used just to link other accounts to the same hashtag? I wasn’t even aware you could use a hashtag in your IG bio, lol. I guess I’ll have to play around with it.

  2. So that’s the secret to those cool fonts on Instagram bios… LingoJam. This is awesome. This is probably a dumb question, but when I post my info on my Instagram bio, the spaces don’t work between my lines of text, they are all on one line which I do not prefer, is there a way to get around this? My IG is: @therapydaily I want the “Formerly known as…” to start on the second line, if that makes sense.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. SO glad you did a post on social media bio info! With such little space, it’s important you get it “right”!

    I’d love to share my bio with you but it’s so plain and sad at the moment, just has my name, title and website link… very bland lol. But I’m gonna do something about that!

  4. Tips for writing a LinkedIN bio were spot on! Thanks so much for that, and also for covering all social media bios, because one size certainly doesn’t fit all. The ‘hook’ is indeed very important. I always forget about LinkedIN, I have been neglecting it. I need to step up my game on there, and also on my other social media accounts.

  5. Agreed that intelligence is the game for Twitter, but do the examples you show of Twitter bios portray the usage of sentences? They don’t seem like complete sentences.

    1. Twitter is crisp. People only skim. Writing “I am a designer” and “Designer” in bio means same. You don’t have to write complete sentences when you have only 20 words to describe yourself on Twitter.
