Facebook 42 Emoticon

There is a new emoticon added to Facebook, the 42 emoticon. Emoticon looks like this 42 emoticon and emoticon shortcut is :42:

But what does this number represent? It is believed that it is the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything“. It is a phrase from popular book called “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams.

The book is very funny and I suggest everyone to read it, you can get it here. Of course there is a movie on DVD or Blu-ray if you don’t like reading books :)

    If you type in facebook.com/42 you get Joe Green, co-founder and president of NationBuilder.

    Hmm lol, yeap there is a connection between :42: and Ultimate Question of Life. Even Google points to this number.

    Kelly, Joe Green is just 42. person on Facebook, who didn’t change his URL. For example facebook.com/10 is Facebook’s dev.

      You mean that because Google points to this number, that makes it more plausible? Come on, even the people working at Google have a sense of humour. Stop being so gullible.
