Why is LinkedIn restricting the character limit when formatting my LinkedIn About section?

I always recommend that my clients get the most out of their LinkedIn About section by using formatting as well as making use of all 2,000 characters.

However, one of my clients discovered that even though the text she’d written in Word came in at just under 2,000 characters, LinkedIn was cutting her content short.

In this video, I’ll walk you through an on-screen demo and explain exactly why the character limit is being restricted.
