As soon as one Facebook craze ends, another one begins. Last week was Cartoon status updates and this week, it’s something else. If you’ve been on Facebook lately you know what I’m talking about –status updates in the form of numbers. But many of us are clueless as to the significance and have turned to trusty Google for answers. So what are these numbers on Facebook status updates all about? Ready to jump on the bandwagon?

No need to be perplexed — I’ll explain it all after the jump!


What is the Facebook Numbers Game?

The idea behind the numbers on Facebook status updates is simple and has gone viral in the past couple of days. One version of the game goes like this: A Facebook user posts a number on his or her status and then friends of that person posts whatever first comes to mind after seeing the number. Some top numbers for this version of the numbers on Facebook status game are 1, 7, 21, 69 and 420, probably because of their popular associations.

Versions of the Facebook Numbers Game

Another version of the numbers on Facebook status game comes from Yahoo:
Basically you send one of your friends a random number of your choosing in a message and they reply in their status with that number and what they think about you. That number identifies you but only you and that person know your secret number because you gave it to them. For example #423 I think you’re soooo sexy. LOL.

Here’s what TheNumbersGame fan page on Facebook says:

The Number Game is a fun, interactive game that you can play with your facebook friends! Here is how it works: Facebook users can ask their friends what they think about them by supplying them with a number through a message. The friend then gives the answer via a status, and attaches the number to their answer for identification purposes.

This Facebook games seem to be best suited for those age thirteen and under and totally asinine for any adults to play. The bottom line is it seems like a lot of people have too much time on their hands. I favor the tried and true method of finding out what people think about you — just ask! But where’s the fun in that?

Like many Facebook crazes, the origin of this new numbers on Facebook status game is unknown. Will you be participating?
