Interesting Text Message responses after Facebook Ban

Posted by Knonie

After Facebook was blocked in Pakistan, I received a really interesting text message from a friend. That text message has a line mimicking Facebook’s following notification:
XYZ has tagged a photo of you“.
Below that text, there was a picture of donkey drawn in ASCII characters.

I shared it with few of my friends to see how they get it during that time. I received quite different types of responses. I’m posting few of them here.

That’s the text message I sent:

Knonie Dost has tagged a photo of you…
(\./)
/.”.)”^—-;”;_
\,,/”( ,     ,   ) \
       //\\ //\\
😛

Few of the responses are listed below. I have changed the real names to initials for privacy reasons.

Pacman is 30 years old, and Google is happy about it

Posted by Knonie

So, when the old school Pacman turned 30 this day, Google celebrated it in the form of an interactive doodle…

The “I’m feeling lucky” button has been changed to “Insert Coin”

It’s a Google’s version of Pacman, having the maze making the word “Google” in it.

I’m attaching a screenshot of it, in case Google replace it again with the regular logo. Click to enlarge.
