Facebook Gets a Contra-Style Easter Egg

It seems that the programmers at Facebook have embedded a small Easter egg into the site. (An Easter egg is a secret embedded by the developers.) To find it:

  1. Log in and go to the homepage (although many other pages seem to work this one’s certain)
  2. On the keyboard press: up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a-(enter)
  3. Click anywhere on the page, and you should see a lens-flare effect

The effect works in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome but doesn’t appear to be supported by Safari. Once the effect’s working, try typing into a comment box to get a more persistant flare.

Is this just one of many yet to be discovered?
