Facebook will tell you which Hogwarts house you belong to with this easy hack

Harry Potter fans, assemble! Have you ever wished there was an easier way to find out which Hogwarts house you’d be in? No? Well, don’t ask and you shall receive, friends. Getting Sorted is now as easy as posting on Facebook. Yup, it’s now possible to use Facebook to find out which Hogwarts house you would belong to.

And it doesn’t even require any wizardry (or even creating an account on Pottermore) to pull it off! Tween you would be SO excited you wouldn’t even need an acceptance letter from Hogwarts to find out which Hogwarts house you belong to.

Here’s what you do (it’s very simple).

Go on Facebook.

Click into the post box and type H-o-g-w-a-r-t-s.com (Editor’s note: I just went to my Facebook page and found something I had posted to my feed — and then in the comments, I copied and pasted “H-o-g-w-a-r-t-s.com”).

Then — here’s where everyone needs a tiny of Gryffindor bravery — submit by hitting enter without hesitating. This last part is very important. The resulting comment will reveal your Hogwarts house to you and the world!

(Editor’s Note: I’m a Hufflepuff. In case you were wondering.)


However, before you run off sulking because you got Sorted into Slytherin, remember that Facebook doesn’t take into account any of your personality traits. Meaning, this Sorting ceremony is little more than luck of the draw. According to Bustle, the Facebook Sorting trick appears to work at random, so phew, you still could very well be the Ravenclaw you always knew you were.

Why does it work? Couldn’t tell ya. But it is extremely fun.

The hack is so popular that the link actually stopped working on Tuesday and had to undergo maintenance, according to Metro. Luckily, it seems to be up and running today so get on Facebook and get yourself Sorted!

And if you don’t like your results, you can always go on Pottermore and take its Sorting quiz. Thanks to the personality-based questions, the results are far more accurate.
