Angry Birds to flock to Facebook on Valentine’s Day

26 Jan 2012

Mega hit video game Angry Birds is set to land on social network Facebook if an announcement by developer Rovio is anything to go by.

The Facebook launch of Angry Birds will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, on 14 February. Why there? Jakarta has 17m registered Facebook users, more than any other city in the world, The Next Web reported.

An announcement for an event scheduled for 6-9pm EST on 14 February read, “Squawk! Everyone’s favorite furious fowl, Angry Birds, is coming to Facebook!

“Nothing says ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ like competitive pig-popping among friends! Join in on the fun – mark this date on your calendars, and let’s make this the biggest Facebook Event ever!”

Tech news site reported that the game has had more than 700m downloads and may have more than 1bn downloads this year.

Facebook’s overall number of users now amount to 8m people.

Can’t wait for 14 February? You can watch the ‘Angry Birds Coming to Facebook’ trailer below. also offers a tongue-in-cheek caveat regarding the 14 February launch of Angry Birds on Facebook: “We encourage our readers not to get too carried away playing the game that you forget your normal Valentine’s Day responsibilities. Angry Birds are one thing, but angry girlfriends are a different game altogether.”
