The only thing you need to do is block the URL: facebook.com/ajax/mercury/change_read_status.php For Chrome, use the extension "FB unseen" which blocks the URL (full disclosure: I wrote this extension).

Well, whoever lied about you being dead did so under the penalty of perjury. IMPORTANT: Under penalty of perjury, this form is solely for the reporting of a deceased person to memorialize.

You cannot block all Facebook game invitations. You can: Block game invites to a specific game Block game invites from a specific friend.

The number of mutual friends now includes mutual friends whose accounts have been disabled, but these friends are not displayed. Also, if the person's full list of friends is hidden to you, a mutual friend who also has their full list of friends hidden to you will not be displayed as a mutual friend.

Facebook has comment spam filters that will, by default, hide certain comments (unless the post owner goes in and manually unhides them). The comments remain in the comment count but don't show up to the public (if it's your post you can see three dots and click to manage the spam posts). I'm not sure if there is an official list of what's spam-worthy ...

Facebook loves to change placement and/or behaviour of settings. As of March 2013, @mark4o's answer is still correct, but the way of reaching the settings is as follows:

Have you tried Google Image search? Facebook profile photos are public (for discoverable accounts). If they have used the photo relatively recently a reverse image search may be helpful.

Okay I have found the solution to block this status. Basically Facebook uses a timer and so it will send a heartbeat message to their servers with the idle time every x minutes. Here is an example of such web request: https://1-edge-chat.facebook.com/pull?channel=userid&seq=0&partition=-2&clientid=18ae8ecc&cb=ie3k&idle=117&qp=y&...

The first time that you set the audience to specific lists or people after the change, this notice pops up: Any custom audience set to specific lists or friends after you are shown this notice will show the list of names.

Great question, though there doesn't appear to be any definitive answer. I think @1kenthomas 's answer is better than the accepted one, as there was (presumably) an attempt to obtain empirical evidence. So, I've done a series of manual tests as of a few minutes ago, and the result was exactly 7,897 characters was the limit. Even one character more causes ...
