April Fools’ 2007 in Social Sites



The April Fools’ Jokes in Search have already been well covered. In my blog reading today, I’ve only seen one mention of social sites’ April Fools’ jokes. Here’s what Facebook creators thought was funny (with my friends’ info anonymized):
Facebook April Fools 2007

Any readers catch any other April Fools’ jokes by social sites?

    Is that why FB was giving me Gray’s Anatomy and Oregon Trail references? I was so very confused yesterday! You have brought order back to my life, Jordan. Much thanks.

    P.S.

    Happy Birthday! :)

    Thanks Lisa. Don’t worry, you weren’t the only one.

    I was confused at first and thought that a friend of mine named Meredith had managed to make it say that.

    One of my friends’ blurred statuses on that screen asked ‘what is WITH Facebook today?!’

    I thought FB finally got a sense of humor. I have a friend Merrdith who breaks up with her boyfriend every other day and I thought FB was adding a little social commentary. Heh.

    Wouldn’t clarify it as social search but the most note worthy of April fool pranks was Matt Cutt’s blog getting hacked. He got me I’ll admit.
