It’s easy to forget about April Fool’s Day until you turn on your computer. Then all of the joke articles and fake news stories overtake your feed. It’s easy to get caught up in the mischievous spirit of the day, and you may want to pull a little prank of your own. If you’d like to join in on the fun, there are some funny and harmless April Fool’s pranks to play on Facebook that won’t cost you much time or get you in trouble at work.
These pranks are silly enough to get a chuckle without doing any damage to your digital reputation. It’s a low-key way to participate in the April 1 fun without breaking out the fake bugs or whoopee cushions. (And in my world the fake bugs fall on the not cool side of pranks.)
Overall, these Facebook pranks are all in good humor that will not put you at any risk of getting unfriended. As long as you come clean by April 2, chances are there will be no harm done. And fair warning: April 1 is NOT the day to leave your Facebook accessible on any device. You wouldn’t want anyone to pull a fake status prank on you.
