Facebook Hacking: Creative Ways to Mess With Your Friends

Can we be a little more creative than the whole “I just took a huge dump” or “I’m gay” or my personal favorite, “I LOVE *insert hacker name here* SO MUCH!” I’m sick of seeing this. It is so basic at this point. There are so many other creative, hilarious things you can do to mess with your friends on Facebook. Here are a few:

1. Change their gender. This may not seem like a revolutionary idea initially, but the reward comes in the long run because people almost never notice this subtle change in sex. You will giggle to yourself every time you see that Carol changed his profile picture.

2. Change their birthday to tomorrow. And be the first to wish your bud a happy birthday. The people who know them best will know it’s not their birthday, but their hundreds of other Facebook friends will have no idea and will be wishing them a delightful birthday all day long.

3. Change their political/ religious views. This won’t be funny if you change them from republican to democrat (snooze). The art of this Facebook hack is changing it to something completely ridiculous. For example, change their political views to the Whig party and caption it “Gettin’ my Whig on!” Change their religious views to “One Direction LOLz!”

4. Change their school. Make them go to a school far more awesome than the one they go to, like Mooseberger Clown Academy. Change their major to something far more interesting than their actual major, like underwater basket weaving.

5. Incorporate YOLO somewhere. Because I still think it’s funny.

6. Always, ALWAYS add “Ball so hard” to their favorite quotations. This is literally everyone’s favorite quotation whether they know it yet or not. You are just helping them by adding it for them.

Oh, and don’t forget to go to their profile when you are finished and hide the post that says “so-and-so updated their About Me section.” If you forget this crucial step, your hard work will go to waste, and we don’t want that.

Please stop talking about poop when you Facebook hack your friends. It isn’t really that funny. In the words of  the great Nicki Minaj, “put your number twos in the air!” but please get them off my newsfeed.

    I like a good status talking about an injury. If you do it right and the person doesn’t notice it right away (i.e. like before you’re going out for they day and he/she won’t be checking their facebook for a while) Then they get concerned texts about “the cat scratch that is causing them to wear an eye patch for a week” OR if you’re my little sister- all of her friends/basketball coach were worried that she wasn’t using her crutches when she’d JUST sprained her ankle the day before.

    Two friends have nailed it on the head with most of those at this point. It gets to the point where the entire profiles are changed to their most embarressing picture, or their face superimposed on something strange, but then also liking pages of the strangest things, so they get updates of that. Relationship status’ have also been changed. A friend’s girlfriend once got rid of the fact he was in a relationship with her, and sent a relationship request to a very straight friend of ours, and the best part was wondering what HE thought of it all. Another hidden one is to change their about me, although maybe it’s just my friends who don’t write anything in it. I did the whole usual fraping stuff, but then in the about me, I wrote the classic “hacker is so awesome” but because he never looks at it, he never found it… but I love the gender one. I’ll have to change that.

    I did the birthday changing one for April Fools Day. It was awesome….and it actually makes you feel strangely nice.

    My friends and I have taken to “frodobombing” other people’s facebooks. It’s where you photoshop a picture of Frodo into their profile pic. Facebook hacking gold.

    One I like to do is change their privacy settings so that their status’ are visible to “only me” so then they think that people are just ignoring everything they say!

    am I the only one who doesnt find that “hacking” thing funny at all?
    First: its not even hacking…
    Second: wtf is so funny about doing any of those things you mentioned? How old are all of you? Like 12?

    My personal favourite is announcing a pregnancy. I once did this to a friend and she got 200 likes!! Haha :)

    i am currently a member of the bull moose party (look it up) and a follower of the religion of Oprah. Good stuff, as long as your friends have a sense of humor it is fun to mess with an open facebook page. However, I had a friend get very upset when someone posted he was gay (it wasn’t me, but he did get a lot of support) and another who’s relationship status (again, not me, i like to think i am more creative : ) was changed to single was also not happy. Be considerate and discerning as to who you prank!
