I update my Facebook status very often. So often that some of my friends have even blocked me from their feeds because I was all over it. It is at that time when Facebook sometimes shows me a dialog box saying “Your status update is too long. The maximum status length is 420 characters, but it is 16401 characters long.”
It does happen sometimes (but if it is 16401, then you got some issues). It can be an excerpt from a poem or a quote from a book. A funny conversation between two people or a bunch of long links. We all have seen this screen at one time or the other.
One way to be pass it is to copy that status update and post it as a comment on a status something like “See below!” since comments have a huge character limit.
Another way is to post an image while updating your status and then write whatever you want under the description of the image which will look like a status update.
Upload an image, I use a 1 pixel image right click here and choose save link as to download the image). Upload it from your computer to Facebook once downloaded and write whatever you wan as your statust! No more 420 character limit for yo.! And tell me, is this trick not feasible?
Why did we use a 1 pixel image? Because it is small. Too small for anyone to even notice it.
And BTW, I inserted a 1 pixel image in the post. Did you notice it? 😉
PS: Using a 1 pixel image is not compulsory, any image can be used for that matter.
