As the April 13th installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker showed, currency and all of its different incarnations is top of mind these days, particularly on social media.  And this week on Saturday’s WSJ Sentiment Tracker covered the social response to the design of the new $100 bill.  As with many topics on the social web, online users were polarized and had some strong opinions – 32% like the new design, while 22% find it ugly, 43% talked about the new security features of Ben Franklin’s bill and 3% cracked jokes. I agree with the comment that it is looking more like the Euro. Check out some of the extra jokes below:

In a blatant effort to taunt the public, the Federal Reserve unveiled their new $100 bill today.

The new $100 have features that make it hard to counterfeit. One feature: nobody in the USA can afford a $100 bill to counterfeit.

It’s like a Photoshop kid from the ’90s designed the new $100 bill.

What do you think of the new design? Let me know!
