A good password should be at least 8 characters, numbers, letters and punctuation marks. You should try to use a different password for every site / service, be careful not to disclose it to anyone and change it immediately if you believe someone has found it.

Change the password of the services you use the most once every three months (or, if the password is strong enough, even once every 6 months), but always pay attention to the computers and devices you enter the password, there may be programs that “steal ” them (read methods to steal passwords on Facebook for more information).
