Now Facebook increases status update to 63,206 characters or less
Today, the social network has bumped it up again, this time by a 12-fold increase to 60,000 characters. Yes!!! Facebook has increased its status update character limit from 5,000 to 63206 characters.
Facebook update character limits have been expanding almost as rapidly as the social network itself. Until March 2009, the limit was barely bigger than Twitter’s, at 160 characters. Then 420 characters marked the end of your post’s potential. This summer, it jumped from 500 to 5,000, and now the limit has hit the stratosphere.
As you can see in the screenshot below, this is a huge character count; I honestly don’t see why you would ever want to write such a long status update.
