Facebook Status Update Now Up To 63,206 Characters

Facebook has now taken a bold move to increase the character limit on status updates from 5,000 to 63,206. This is good news to budding novelists out there, who do not need to post multiple updates to reach a typical novel length of 500,000 characters.

Facebook’s Journalist Program Manager, Vadim Lavrusik made an announcement through a blog post:

“In September, we increased the character limit on status updates to 5,000 characters. Today, we’re announcing that you can now write posts with more than 60,000 characters.”

This may be too long for some, but according to the website, ZDNet, its competitor, Google+, still rules when it comes to character limits, because they allow up to 100,000 characters for their updates.

Y Combinator plus Facebook = Death for Competitors? Let's see what they have...

Y Combinator, an investment company for early age startups is now changing and upgrading its relationship status with Facebook. Facebook announced the “In a Relationship” venture with the Y Combinator, just today. This partnership must be very beneficial to both ends.

The Y Combinator has produced startups that went on top notch and attracted high profile investors, which includes Justin.tv, Reddit, Scribd and Dropbox. As a result of this partnership, they will have complete access to the ideas in the webspace. Which will be an advantage to built social products and pick the best startups before Google.

For Y Combinator, facebook will provide startups with good resources including the access to Facebook Credits and other beta features of the giant social network. Technical assistance, design and product support to name a few.

Y Combinator will use the winter 2011 class to dig social startups to benefit from its partnership with Facebook.

“In the near future, we think it will be hard to imagine a web experience that is not personalized. Startups that can build in these interactions from the beginning — not simply add them to existing products — will be the examples of transformative social experiences others will follow,” said Facebook Platform lead Carl Sjogreen.

Something strategic is coming our way and I think we credit the give and take individuals behind it.
