How To: Post A Status Longer Than 420 characters

, , Leave a comment

Has your status ever been too complicated to describe in less than 420 characters? The maximum length of a status update on Facebook is currently 420 characters. If you exceed that number you will get this annoying error message:

“Status updates must be less than 420 characters. You have entered 804 characters here. Notes can be much longer. Would you like to edit and post your update as a Note instead?”

Sometimes you may have a lot to say but you don’t want to post it in a note.

How it works:

All you have to do is “Upload a Photo” instead of sharing a status.

Step 1: Simply grab a photo off your hard drive, any photo you want to accompany your extremely long status update.

Step 2: Once you select your photo, you can write as much as you want! Part of your message will be covered up by a “See More” link, but its better than nothing.
