Facebook users have recently began interacting in a way they had never before. We already know that hypes and trends pop-up from time to time within Facebook and this is NO exception. The Washington Post reads, “The premise is simple: To start the game, someone tells everyone to send them a private message with any number they choose. Then the person can post a public message to that person using the number. Everyone will see the message, but the only two people who know what it’s about will be the original poster and the person who chose that number.”
U.S. users adopt technologies and social media trends faster than other countries. Take Mexico for example; Over 1000 of my Facebook contacts are located in Mexico and I haven’t seen a single one post on this topic. However, my friends in major U.S. cities like Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Chicago have made a significant impact on my awareness of this social media phenomena we know as “The Facebook Numbers Game”. Will it go global? I think it will. Mostly everything about Facebook is inevitably and unarguably global. Always.
