Recently Facebook has nounced its increase in limir in status update to 62,206 Charecters.

Two months ago, Facebook increased its status update character limit from 500 to 5,000. Today, the social network has bumped it up again, this time by a 12-fold increase to 60,000 characters.
So where does the number 63,206 come from? Facebook engineer Bob Baldwin explains: “I set the exact limit to something nerdy. Facebook … Face Boo K … hex(FACE) – K … 64206 – 1000 = 63206 :-).”


Still Facebook doesn’t let you go on as long as Google+. There the limit appears to be 100,000 characters.
