Facebook has extended the maximum length of status updates to 60,000 characters, 12 times what it used to be.
Perhaps this move intends to offset the site’s recently announced plan to end support of RSS in the Notes application.
The change might offer longer thoughts better visibility in the news feed than the old Notes had. However, longer statuses don’t jibe with the ticker, which tends to clip posts after a period mark.
