facebook audience networkWhile this has apparently been in effect for a while now, it has recently been brought to our attention that the notification icon in Facebook’s website actually differs from country to country! Now most people probably won’t notice the icon because of its color which kind of helps it blend into the background, that and the fact that we probably don’t look at it unless we have a notification.

However according to reports, it seems that the icon will look different depending on which part of the world you are in. For example the folks at TheNextWeb tested it out by accessing Facebook from the US and from Latin America via VPN, and they found that the icon actually does change!

If you haven’t noticed it now, go ahead and check it out! If you have a VPN, even better as you can try and browse Facebook from different countries to see what the icon looks like. Pretty cool, huh?
