    What the heck are these? What is that and what is it for?

    Why do people use them as avatars?

    Thanks!

    It is called a barcode. You can d/l the barcode scanner from the market and scan one, it'll take you to the specified link associated with the barcode
    on your phone..
    Hope this helps

    Ya just scan it with the scanner app or google goggles. When people use them as thier avatar it usually linked to their profile page or their facebook page.

    Due to this thread I have found out I'm a geek! WTF?

    When did this happen? Wait... I fly kites, have limited friends and rooted my phone as soon as I could... Oh crap :( I'm a geek!

    Loved the moment I created a QR code for my website :)Now I hate it as I really am a geek :(
