Status Update

Post a funny and attention grabbing status update like, ‘just got fired’, ‘was arrested last night for slapping a policeman’, ‘moving to a new place’, ‘you’re pregnant’ or something of that sort. This way you can surely prank many of your friends and even family members.

Notification Spamming

This facebook prank idea can be little annoying. The main thing to take care of, when using this idea, is to make sure that you’re playing with a good friend. Start by stalking them and liking everything they do, including their pictures, updates, comments, etc. But, immediately after, unlike all that you just liked. So, your friend will be spammed with notifications and when he opens them, it’ll all lead to nothing.

The Fake Profile Link

This one’s quite famous, and we’ve also talked about this one on ShoutMeLoud. Just post a status update and add this profile link : This is a fake profile link, which means that whoever clicks on it will be taken to their own profile page. So, go ahead and post a status update such as “My friend is missing, if you find him please let his family and friends know” followed by the profile link. Make sure that you remove the attachment image when posting the status or it’ll end up showing your own profile image. You can come up with many funny status updates and then add this link. When a friend clicks on it, they’ll land on their own page and be super confused.

Identity Theft

Use their name for the new profile too, this way they and friends of theirs will be super confused. Make the whole profile look like an exact replica of your friends profile and it should yield some funny results.

Warning: Do not attempt this Fb pranks with mortal enemies or people you do not know well.
