Here’s a little something for those who believe Facebook has an unbreakable grip on their day-to-day life. If you think it’s bad now, just wait until Valentine’s Day, which is when a flock of Angry Birds will be unleashed upon the network.

That’s right, Rovio’s hugely popular (and explosively suicidal) flock of furious fowl are bringing their pig-hunting and egg-retrieving skills to everyone’s favorite social network.

“Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like competitive pig-popping among friends!” trumpeted the game’s creators via an official Facebook event page.

Although Rovio is billing the arrival of Angry Birds as “the biggest Facebook event ever”, expectant users will only be able to enjoy the swine-based destruction for a short time.

Specifically, according to a PC Mag report, the addictive action puzzler will only be hosted by Facebook between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on the evening of February 14 (time zone not yet confirmed).

As of November 2010, the Angry Birds game had been downloaded more than 500 million times, making it the most downloaded videogame title in history.
