If you hadn’t noticed people’s attention spans on Social Media tend to be pretty short. Have you seen people scrolling through TikTok!? We didn’t think it was possible to scroll that fast! Apparently however, it is, that is why it's essential to get your message across quickly and clearly. 

Keep your Copy concise and to the point, avoiding unnecessary fluff or jargon. Use short sentences and paragraphs, and make sure your message is easy to understand at a glance. Trust us no one is going on social media to give their brain a workout.
