I was on Twitter and Facebook and I kept seeing people posting statuses with these numbers in front of them. I felt left out because I didn’t know why and it seemed that people were really enjoying these posts. So I did a little research and this is what I found.

Facebook numbers in status updates have swept both Facebook and Twitter, but what is the number game on Facebook?

If you see numbers on Facebook, you may be scratching your head to figure out what’s going on… and/or you may just be plain annoyed if you’re not playing along!

The Facebook number game has users requesting random numbers from their friends, which they then use to write things both good and bad about each person, while only identifying them by a number.

So, the idea of the Facebook numbers in status trend is anonymity because none of your other friends know who you’re talking about.

Have you tried out the Facebook number status game? Do you think it’s a fun diversion, or is seeing all of the random numbers in your feed annoying you?

I honestly believe that this will run it’s course but we want to hear from you. Check it out and let us know what you think.
