Tag people in Status Updates, Wall Posts, Comments or Text

To tag someone in text in a manner that a link is created to the person's profile, use the @ symbol. eg. If you wish to tag John Jamison in your comment write @ John Jamison without any spelling mistake. If the person is in your friend list, a link in blue will be automatically created to the person's profile and he would be "tagged".

Write Upside Down, In Bubbles or Inverted Mirror

You might have seen many people update their Facebook status saying that "this was the last time they bought a keyboard on eBay "or"they have finally learnt how to update Facebook statuses while doing a "headstand" written upside down.

Here is how you too can flip text like that and add much more cool effects.
  1. Just go to Upside Down Text link
  2. Uncheck Backwards effect
  3. Enter your text and copy the inverted one from the inverted text column and paste it in your status update or chats. (You can also write inverted mirror like text by un-checking the upside down effect)
P/S: To write in bubbles, click on the Bubble Ball text in the top Navigation bar.

Few examples:
  1. Mirror Effect: !rorrim a ni deppart ma I !oN hO
  2. Upside Down Effect: ɯɐp ʞǝʎqoɐɹp¡
  3. Both Mirror and Upside Down Effect: ¡poפ ǝɯ dlǝH ˙ʎzɐɹɔ ƃuıʇʇǝƃ sı uıɐɹq ʎW
  4. Text in Bubbles: Ⓞⓗ Ⓝⓞ! Ⓜⓞⓡⓔ ⓑⓤⓑⓑⓛⓔⓢ

Cool Facebook Chat Tricks (Pirate Language)

Most of us use Facebook to interact with some of our long separated friends but that does not mean we cannot have fun on Facebook. Here is a collection of tricks, tips and Easter eggs you can use to enjoy your experience on Facebook.

Facebook Easter Eggs: Pirate Language, Turn Facebook Upside Down

Facebook is not as famous for its Easter eggs as Microsoft, but that does not mean that Facebook's Easter eggs are not entertaining. The one which I especially find interesting is the Pirate Language trick.

How to enable Pirate Language in Facebook?
  1. Login to Facebook
  2. Click on the down arrow at the right of the top navigation bar
  3. Click on Account Settings
  4. Click on Edit at the right of the Language option
  5. In the Primary Language dropdown menu, select English(Pirate) located somewhere near the bottom and be the captain of your Pirate Ship.
  6. DONE!!

Blabber t' yer mates

Similarly, you can also turn Facebook upside down by selecting English(Upside Down) from the Languages dropdown. This will flip the entire Facebook interface but your status updates would still be "normal".

See. Mark Zuckerberg does know how to headstand

Ahakkk~~!! Enjoy guys!!
