Blue thumb up is a recognizable symbol of Facebook, you have seen it million times on Like button. But did you know that you can include thumb up icon in chat and private message conversations?

For example you can write this sentence: “Coffee is cool (Y)”, and emoticon will be added to the end of the text implying that you really like coffee, similar to pressing the Like button for Coffee :)

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