You cannot use more than 63,206 characters in your Facebook status update

That's right the number in the post title is quiet right. Each Facebook post update cannot be more than 63,206 characters. Not a character more is allowed. So go ahead and post away because compared to Twitter is is heaven - especially for those who like to share stories in the Facebook updates. Vadim Lavrusik - program manager at Facebook announced via a blog post that Facebook allows post with more than 60,000 characters. Our friends over at Mashable wanted more clarification and asked for the exact number - 63,200 was the number they got. There you have it folks, the last update from Facebook was that the character limit had been increased to 5,000. The next update that we have before us is 63,206. Now that is a huge increase and maybe users on Facebook have a lot more to say. We have already seen some fatigue with people who keep updating constantly imagine what would happen now if those updates can be as long as a short story. Please use the comments section below to let us know if you would post updates that long and if you would read updates that long.
