There are many uses for the letter X in the English language. It comes in handy for so much more than just xylophones and exits. You can use an X to mark a location on a map or write out multiplication problems. When you go to the polls to vote, you will place an X on your ballot for the candidate you want to vote for. That is, unless your polling location has switched to voting machines.
When you’re posting updates to your Facebook status or chat, you might want to make your updates stand out a bit more by adding Facebook symbols to your messages. There are four different symbols you can use in place of the letter X when posting to your Facebook account.
