It's PEMDAS, or as we call it in Britain, BODMAS. When faced with big sums like this, you first deal with:
Brackets (Parenthesis)  if there any sums in brackets, do them first, then
Orders (Exponents)  ie. square roots, powers etc, then
Division and Multiplication, then finally
Addition and Subtraction.
So here, there are no brackets or orders so you skip straight to the multiplication, which is at the end. Only brackets can group things together. So, if the sum was
(2+2+22 etc.) x 0, the answer would be 0  but there are no brackets here, so it's sequential, ie. each number adds/subtracts/multiplies ONLY the number next to it. So, as we deal with multiplication first, you go to the end and it's 0 x 2 (because the 2 is next to the 0), then you do the additions and subtractions. So:
2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+22+2 x 0
First you multiply the 2 x 0 to get 0, so that gets cancelled out:
2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+22+2 x 0
Then, you can see at the end that there's a '+22', (ie. 22) which again gives 0. Cancel that out too:
2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+22 +2 x 0
Finally, simply add up all the twos. There are 13 2s, so it's 26!

Quit thinking people are retarded for thinking it's zero; I did at first.
People assume that you multiply all the twos together, then multiply it by zero.
Whether or not there are parentheses, it's first instinct for most people when they see a "x0"
so quit whining and get over it; it's just a stupid Facebook question.

worst part is I think whoever made the poll was intending 0 to be the right answer, but didn't realize where he went wrong.
should have gone (2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+22) * 0
but THAT would have been too obvious...
