Facebook elected not to go dark to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act, unlike Google, which blocked out its logo, and Wikipedia, which actually went grey.

However, Facebook’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg posted a status update about SOPA, garnering 7,182 likes as of this posting. His post links to a page on the site that explains the company’s stance on the issue.

Earlier this month, the social network joined other Internet giants — including AOL, eBay, Google, LinkedIn, Mozilla, Twitter, Yahoo, and Zynga — in backing an alternative to SOPA, the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act.

However, anti-SOPA sentiment can be found all over Facebook today, including the Against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) group, which totaled nearly 40,000 members at the time of this post.

Below are some of the more humorous SOPA-related posts found on Facebook today, followed by a copy of Google’s infographic that people are forwarding.
