In this article i will show you how to show 100 characters only from lots of words and remaining words or you can say characters are hide from see more words, just like facebook.com.  In facebook.com website, when we post some article which is lengthy in words then facebook.com functionality hide words just after specified length behind the see more links. Now, today i will give an example of it.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <title>Facebook See More and See Less</title>
    <script src="Scripts/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
        var sChar = 100;
        var ellipsestxt = "...";
        var moretext = "more";
        var lesstext = "less";
        $('.more').each(function () {
            var content = $(this).html();

            if (content.length > sChar) {

                var c = content.substr(0, sChar);
                var h = content.substr(sChar - 1, content.length - sChar);

                var html = c + '<span class="moreellipses">' + ellipsestxt + '&nbsp;</span><span class="morecontent"><span>' + h + '</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="" class="facebookmorelink">' + moretext + '</a></span>';



        $(".facebookmorelink").click(function () {
            if ($(this).hasClass("less")) {
            } else {
            return false;
        a {
            color: #0221ac;

            a:visited {
                color: #02abcd;

            a.facebookmorelink {
                text-decoration: none;
                outline: none;

        .morecontent span {
            display: none;

        .facebookseemore {
            width: 400px;
            background-color: #f0f0f0;
            margin: 10px;
    <div class="facebookseemore more">
