Facebook employees painted a giant 42 foot giant QR code on the Facebook Office roof so that it is visible from space, appears on Google maps and can be scanned by QR code readers to visit target facebook sites on mobile smartphones. QR codes are getting popular and everyday people are finding new unique ways to get visitors to their site.

It was part of the “Space Hackathon” called by Mark Zuckerberg at the  new Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park. As Facebook staff eagerly climbed on the roof and painted the QR code, they chose a short url fbco.de so that the QR code could be made simpler and easily scannable even is smaller sizes when viewable on maps!

Kind of reminds me of similar attempts to create large billboards of Eva Longoria by Maxim and huge KFC logos!
