How to Write a Professional Bio For Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook & Google+

4.6K Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 4.6K Flares ×

Talking about yourself is hard. Doing it in 160 characters or less is even harder.

That’s probably why so many of us end up stressed about crafting the perfect professional bio for Twitter – or LinkedIn, Facebook or other social networks.

It has to set you apart, but still reflect approachability. Make you look accomplished, but not braggy. Appear professional, with just a touch of the personal. Bonus points for a bit of humor thrown in, because hey, social media is fun!

All that in just a few sentences? No wonder The New York Times called the Twitter bio “a postmodern art form.”

In this post, we’ll go over the universal principles of a great social media bio – regardless of the network. We’ll also take a look at the big social media networks – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ – and discover how to make the most of the bio space provided by each.

Six rules for a foolproof bio

“Not that the story need be long, but it will take a long while to make it short.” – Henry David Thoreau

Yes, a bio on social media needs to be brief – and that can be tricky. But instead of lamenting the bio’s space constraints, treat it as an opportunity – after all, writing short has its rewards in social media. Think of the bio like a copywriting exercise or a six-word memoir.

A professional bio on a social network is an introduction – a foot in the door so your potential audience can evaluate you and decide if you’re worth their time.

In that way, it’s a lot like a headline you’re deciding whether or not to click – a small window to make a big impression.

“A formula I learned about writing short poetry is that ultimately what you’re looking for is focus, wit and evidence of polish,” says Roy Peter Clark, author of How to Write Short: Word Craft for Fast Times, in an interview with TIME.

“Focus means that we have a keen understanding of what the message is about, wit meaning there’s a governing intelligence behind the prose, polish meaning there’s that one little grace note, that one little word in a tweet that sounds like us in an authentic way.”

Pack in as much focus, wit and polish as possible by by employing these principles.

1. Show, don’t tell: “What have I done” > “Who I am”

Lots of us are fans, enthusiasts, thinkers and gurus on our social media profiles. But might it be more powerful if we talked instead about harnessing ideas, wrangling revenue, obsessing over culture and shepherding our teams?

The “show, don’t tell” principle of writing means focusing on what you do, not who you are – and that means action verbs. Try this list of action verbs for resumes and see if any of them add a little power to your profile.

LinkedIn senior manager for corporate communications Krista Canfield says the more details, the better to add some show to your tell.

“Don’t just say you’re creative. Make sure you reference specific projects you worked on that demonstrate your creativity,” she says.

2. Tailor your keywords specifically to your audience

“Your Twitter bio should position you as an expert in your field who serves a specific audience,” says Dan Schawbel, author of Promote Yourself.

According to a PayScale Inc. study Schwabel was involved in, 65% of managers want to hire and promote subject matter experts.

Skip the generalist route and focus on what you’re an expert at. Those areas of focus are your keywords, and they should be front and center in any professional bio. All social media profiles are searchable to some degree, so being specific positions you to be able to be found easily for what you’re best at.

3. Keep language fresh and avoid buzzwords like the following:

It happens – a once loved and useful word stops being so useful when it’s overtaxed. In your professional bio, think over the language and make sure it feels fresh, not overused.

Check out the Twitter Bio Generator and Silly Twitter Bio to see some bio cliches in action.

LinkedIn recently compiled its most overused words for 2013. Are any of these in your bio?

4. Answer one question for the reader: “What’s in it for me?”

No matter what feats you’ve accomplished, potential followers mostly want to know one thing about you: What’s in it for me? In marketing, that’s known as a value proposition – the promise of value to be delivered. What can followers expect from you? What value do you bring?

5. Get personal and hire a stand-up comedian to write your bio

That last little tidbit of the bio – usually where a funny quip or a more personal fact goes – often trips us up the most. Being funny is tough – that’s why social media agency owner Gary Vaynerchuk often hires stand-up comedians to write social media posts. And it’s tough to pick one element of a fully rounded personality to focus on.

The key again, is specificity. Lots of us love social media, coffee and bacon. But if you love llamas, jelly donuts and spelunking, you just might stand out and connect with some interesting new people. Tell a one-of-a-kind story. What hobbies and passions are uniquely yours?

6. Revisit often

As your skills, areas of interest and expertise evolve, so should your bio. Check it every quarter or so to make sure it still reflects you the best it can.

“The very best practitioners of short writing on blogs, on social networks, are people who are working over their prose. They’re revising it, with the same care they would if they were putting it on paper,” says Clark.

How to max out each social network

Now that we’ve got an idea of what makes a great social media bio, let’s look at each social network specifically. Here’s a quick cheat sheet from Unbounce to get started.

Social-Media-Bio-Best-Practices-Guide-560

Twitter

What you get: A 160-character bio, plus space for a link and your location.
How to: When logged in to Twitter, click Me, then “Edit Profile.”

Stellar Twitter bios

Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State
Hillary Twitter bio
Why it works: In a word, humor. Hillary doesn’t need to drum up awareness – we know who she is. But modifiers like “pantsuit aficionado” help us see her in a new light.

Maria Popova, Brainpickings.org
Maria Popova Twitter bio
Why it works: A pitch-perfect value proposition. You know exactly what you’ll get if your follow.

Joel Gascoigne, Buffer founder and CEO
Joel Twitter bio
Why it works: OK, this may be cheating. But check out that string of excellent and specific keywords!

Facebook

What you get: “About You” section, including the freeform “Write About Yourself” prompt, Work and Education, “Professional Skills” area and Favorite Quotations section
How to: From your Facebook page, click on “About,” then “Update Info.”
Facebook-about
Here, you can edit any of your About sections.
FB-skills
FB-quotations

LinkedIn

What you get: Lots! LinkedIn is home base for all your professional accomplishments, but we’ll focus on your headline and summary.
How to: Logged into LinkedIn, click “Profile” and choose “Edit” from the drop-down menu.

Stellar LinkedIn bios

Krista Canfield, Senior Manager of Corporate Communications at LinkedIn
Krista Canfield LinkedIn summary
Why it works: If a LinkedIn manager can’t nail her bio, what chance do the rest of us have? Luckily, Krista does. A reader gets a great sense of who she is from this passage, and the passion shines through strongly. Plus, lots of great verbs!

Brian Massey, The Conversion Scientist
Brian Massey Linkedin bio
Why it works: If a bio is like an elevator pitch in writing, this one gets you hooked in a hurry by using the power of storytelling.

Demian Farnworth, writer at Copyblogger
Demian LinkedIn summary
Why it works: It’s personal, humble without being a humblebrag and it tells a story by describing the problems content faces – and how Demian solves them.

Google+

What you get: Google+ offers you space for your “Story,” including a Tagline, Introduction and Bragging Rights sections. (There’s also space for work history and links.)
How to: Logged into Google+, click on Profile, then About, then the Edit button of the specific section you want to edit.
Google+ bio box

Let’s see your bios!

Want to share your own bio, or your company’s? Paste it into the comments so we can see more great examples!

  • Jimmie

    Here’s what I have on Twitter:

    “Want to be awesome? Go be awesome. Don’t know how? Let me help.
    Writer of useful articles. Maker of cool things. Singer of lovely songs.
    Useful dude.”

    What do you think?

    • Courtney Seiter

      Hey, thanks for sharing! You definitely sound like someone good to know. :) Great value proposition!

      • Jimmie

        I just might get a t-shirt that says “I’m a Good Value Proposition” on the front! ;)

        • Courtney Seiter

          And sell them at marketing conferences. :) That is a money-making idea!

    • Andrew

      Can I suggest changing ‘Let me help’ to ‘I can help’?

      • Jimmie

        That’s a good point, Andrew. I had thought of that, but basically tossed a coin and “Let me…” won. Why do you think “I can…” works better? I’d be very interested.

        • Andrew

          I think “I can…” shows confidence – but not arrogance – in your own ability, and with “Let me…” you’re asking prospects for something, whereas with “I can…” you’re offering them something. What do you think?

          • Jimmie

            I think you make a heck of a case. Consider my bio changed. And thank you for the help!

          • Andrew

            You’re very welcome Jimmie – I’m glad to have been able to help and thanks very much to you, Courtney, for giving me the chance to do so through your excellent article.

  • http://codecondo.com/ Alex

    Mine for Twitter is:

    “I’m a writer and I’ll gladly help you.”

    I wonder if people are not used to the term ‘someone will help me’ – but it does seem to work well for me.

    • Courtney Seiter

      Glad you’re seeing success there. Sometimes a simple and to-the-point message is all you need. :)

  • Jan Minihane

    Hiya, neat overview that I can refer to with clients, thanks!

    My twitter bio:

    Social media geek (with added perspective) at The Net Advantage Ltd. I tweet news/views/fun stuff. Into all things purple, family, running & paleo. Join me?

    Any thoughts welcome! :-)

    • Courtney Seiter

      Happy to help! I really like the “added perspective” element in your bio–takes nice advantage of the curiosity gap. All thing purple, huh? ;)

      • Jan Minihane

        The perspective bit is what differentiates me as an advisor I think, I’m almost an anti-social media advisor sometimes! And as for purple, always, best colour out there :-)

  • JerryDRoss

    Courtney,
    Great tips on how to set up our LinkedIn profile. I’ll be doing some change based on these suggestions. Good overview of some of the other social tools. Putting them all together brings to light how they all need different profiles and techniques.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Jerry

    • Courtney Seiter

      You’re absolutely right and I’m so glad you brought it up — each network has its own style and definitely does need it own technique for the bio. Good luck with your changes!

      • Jimmie

        I’d like to put in a request for a down-the-road post, please.

        I’m on LinkedIn but, for the life of me, I can’t figure out what to do with it. Plenty of people have written about what a great business/job-hunting/prospect-finding/networking platform it is but none of them try very hard to explain why LinkedIn is so good and how I can use that goodness. I’d love a Courtney-Eye view of LinkedIn. Please. :)

        • Andrew

          Jimmie, someone asked me the same question at work recently and I put together a couple of brief emails on what I thought was the value in LI for me. If they’d be of interest, let me know and I can send them on.

        • Courtney Seiter

          I definitely take requests. :) Consider it on the list. I’ve heard variations of that question from lots of folks, which means it’s probably ripe to dig into!

  • http://tiakelly.ca/ Tia K

    I’m always still blown away by people and businesses who don’t take full advantage of all the optimizing you can do to your social profiles. Blank spaces = bad

    Is there a reason you focus on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn on your Buffer Facebook bio? What about Google+ :) Just because of character limitations?

    My own personal Twitter bio is attached.

    Also, thanks for the shoutout to our Unbounce post, Courtney! We are always trying to test what works best for our description. I’ve also attached our current company one for Facebook.

    Can’t wait to read more from you on here :)

    • Courtney Seiter

      Oh man, I definitely want to talk about “the weird things people do” with you now. That’s awesome!

      Re: Buffer’s Facebook bio, I’m honestly not sure if that was a space constraint or just an oversight. We’re adding new stuff so quickly around here that it’s hard to keep up! I’ll definitely check on that though. Good eye!

    • Guest

      Here’s my @BeigleBrant Twitter bio:
      Persistent optimist, autodidactic serial skiller, Kanban queen, and middle-aged mom on a mission: iterating roadmaps for staying relevant.
      A friend said he had to look up Kanban. Is that good or bad for a bio?

  • http://uglybuthonest.com/ Mark Brian

    Here is my twitter bio with the link to my website removed:

    Hater of Spammers & Scammers! Animal Lover yet a Meat Eater, Love Coffee and Heavy Metal, Smoker, Realtor in Anderson SC (link to my website here) RT ≠ Endorsement

    I see so many twitter bios that leave me wondering what the person actually does. Come right out and say who you are, what you do and where you call home.

    Just my 2 cents worth but then again, I am NOT a guru, ninja or any other buzzword that I see way too often in twitter bios….

    • Courtney Seiter

      Hey, Mark–thanks for sharing. Your bio is interesting and explores a concept I almost put into this post. It’s about dualities — things that don’t seem to go together, like your “animal love but meat eater” duo. Dualities really stand out to people, so i think you’re onto something (even if you’re not a ninja). ;)

      • http://uglybuthonest.com/ Mark Brian

        The first rule of Fight Club and being a ninja is to never talk about…

  • http://twitter.com/jessnola Jessica Rohloff

    Awesome post! Look forward to reading more from you. :)

    Here’s my @jessnola twitter bio: “Superconnector. Marketing strategist. Wig aficionado. I build communities (and sometimes tweet the future.) There’s no such thing as too good to be true.”

    • Courtney Seiter

      Good one, Jessica! So many intriguing elements you’ve got going on here. Who wouldn’t want to follow someone who tweets the future? :)

      • http://twitter.com/jessnola Jessica Rohloff

        Thanks, Courtney! Except after looking at the Silly Twitter Bios and Twitter Bio Generator, I realized that mine sounds a lot like those. Oh well. I like it anyway. :)

        • Courtney Seiter

          Those things are uncanny! At one point I thought about chucking this whole article and just pointing everyone there. :)

          • http://twitter.com/jessnola Jessica Rohloff

            Haha, that would’ve been one option. On a related note, you did an amazing job of researching and including useful links in this article. By the time I was done reading it I had like 12 other browser tabs open. Nice work!

          • Courtney Seiter

            That is the BEST compliment! Thanks :D

          • Christie Moler

            I want to second Jessica’s comment on the useful links! I just read the article and have 9 other browser tabs open and waiting to be read! As a current job seeker and unofficial luddite, I am absorbing all I can to improve my marketability. Thanks for the help!

          • Courtney Seiter

            Awesome, so glad to hear that!

  • MarkMillerITPro

    Enjoying your blogs!

    • Courtney Seiter

      Thanks for sharing, Mark! I like your play on the old “views are my own” bugaboo. :) Sweet background pic, too!

  • Luca

    Here is my @lucazen Twitter bio. What do you think ? :)

    Ex-Googler, Polymath, Ambivert & Tech-Anthropologist. Books and Tea Lover. Dream Job: Archaeologist of the Psyche. All Views are my Own & usually Wrong.

    • Courtney Seiter

      Whoa! I’ll tell you after I Google all 3 of the things after Ex-Googler. :) I’m intrigued by “archeologist of the psyche”…

      • Luca

        …yes, maybe the first part is a little too pompous :)

        • Courtney Seiter

          On the other hand, the curiosity gap intrigues people. It definitely helped me learn something new today!

  • Jay Ricciardi

    Thanks for the awesome insight. I just rewrote mine to focus more on my role as an editor for a gaming news site (@ZacaJay). Here’s what I came up with:

    Editor @GameSkinny. I tweet about video games, words, waffles, and Nic Cage. Views are pixelated. I want to know about your favorite terrible movie.

    • Courtney Seiter

      Mmm, waffles. AND Nic Cage? I’m in. :) Great call to action on the terrible movies; I hope you get lots of responses. :)

  • Samantha Owens

    I know on my Twitter bio, I’ve tried to focus on what I do outside of work that is relative to my chosen field, since I currently do not work in my chosen field. This is mine:

    Photographer. Writer. Grammar nerd. Bookworm. Love Napa Valley culture, food, & wine. S at http://sowenswrites.com and contributor at http://insatiablebooksluts.com.

    I have been thinking of rewriting it for awhile, though. :) I have been really enjoying the Buffer blog since I’ve been reading most every day! :D

      Smart strategy! So glad you’re digging the blog! :)

    • Courtney Seiter

      160 is a tough challenge for sure, especially when you’ve got so much going on!

  • Albert Freeman

    I like that advice about making more use of verbs. I always struggle not to make my bios too busy, wanting to cram too much in. Is this Twitter bio too busy?
    “I make music with Wilful Missing and work on digital communications for
    Bradford Council. Also a photographer, radio presenter and fan of Test
    cricket”

    It would be good to have more extensive advice on Google+ bios. For instance, what is the optimum length for the introduction and bragging rights? I see some G+ bios that are like essays!

    • Courtney Seiter

      Nice bio! I agree; perhaps I’ll revisit Google+ later on. That bragging rights field is a little weird. Maybe there are some good examples to learn from out there.

  • Marissa Mele

    I really enjoyed this post. There was tons of great advice and I have been really enjoying reading everyone’s bios. I love when people are share personal tidbits over just professional/corporate buzzwords.

    Here is mine:

    “mixtape maker, epic party thrower, beer snob, taste creator, taco
    aficionado, fun junky, world music DJ, karaoke killah, silly song
    writer”

    • Courtney Seiter

      Wow, you sound super fun! :) Glad you liked the post!

      • Marissa Mele

        Thanks, Courtney! You as well! Btw I saw in your bio that you collect vintage costs. I also have some killer vintage coats & capes. You gotta share some pics! I would love to see them. :)

        • Courtney Seiter

          Ooh, I adore capes! Funny story: I actually changed my own bio after writing this post :)

          • Marissa Mele

            That’s awesome! I figured your post inspired you as much as it did the rest of us. :)

  • http://www.healthyvore.com/ Corina @Healthyvore

    Wow! Can I say, just what the doctor ordered! Working on my LinkedIn bio as we speak.

    I’d love your thoughts on my Twitter bio (attached). Thanks :)!

    • Courtney Seiter

      Glad the post was useful for you, Corina! Very healthy bio :)

      • http://www.healthyvore.com/ Corina @Healthyvore

        Great! Thanks for the feedback Courtney. That’s what I am going for ;). Yeah, I truly love the post and the timing couldn’t have been better.

  • Umm Sultan

    Thanks for the tips!

    This was my original Twitter bio:

    Creating, curating and sharing sketch notes/ doodles/visual notes, and graphic recordings of Islamic lectures and events.

    This is my revised bio:
    Muslim, Sketchnoter, Idea-Junkie, aspiring Mompreneur, Interested in Teaching & Learning in the 21st Century. Sharing things I find interesting & beneficial.
    …….
    The jury is still out on the last sentence since it pretty much sums up what most people (should) do on Twitter. However I wanted to end with a value proposition of sorts. May still do some more tweaking, as budding typography nerd, and Human failed to make the cut.

    Since Twitter is a little less formal than LinkedIn I figured “Interested in Teaching & Learning…” might go over better than mentioning I have a Master’s in Instructional Design for Online Learning.

    Overall I really appreciated the advice though, this new bio reflects more of a holistic view rather than focusing on one single thing that I do.

    now to tackle the background image. Cringe.

    • Courtney Seiter

      Thanks for sharing your bio and thought process; great stuff!

  • Life, in a Day®

    Excellent, EXCELLENT post! Thanks! I’m def missing the mark with my profile on twitter. It’s my company name (my company is just me). Thinking I should make it more personal (?). But I do have my pic there to show it’s just me (?). Wondering if I’m conveying that.

    First things first, thank you for this great article Courtney. I found this page while looking for ways to make an ideal bio on Google+, as I haven’t got around to writing one yet and feel that I should as I’m beginning to use it a lot more now :)

    In finding this article, I’ve been able to pick up on a lot of tips which I wouldn’t have thought about before and will definitely implement them as needed.

    I won’t share my Facebook bio here as it’s too long and I only have people who I personally know on my friends list there anyway, so a long bio without as much originality isn’t such a big deal.

    P.S. I’m more of an “Informer” and I often tweet funny takes on daily happenings..
