You may have thought that pirates were a thing of the past, but recently there have been many incidents where modern-day pirates have terrorized people traveling by boat. There have been many thefts and hijackings near the Eastern coast of Africa. The skull symbol has been adopted on Facebook as a way to show your concern for the situation.
The use of the skull symbol to support this cause began about five years ago and has increased as organizations such as Pirate Bay joined in on using it. Pirate Bay owns a large file-sharing site. They adopted the skull symbol to demonstrate their willingness to go against established laws and authority to keep their site running.
You might use a skull symbol to show your support for one of these causes or just because you think skulls are cool. Whatever your reason for using the skull symbol, it is a fun symbol to add to your Facebook status. Here is what the symbol looks like:
