How To Hack Facebook !!

The very first thing I should mention is that when it comes to Facebook, there’s really no such thing as “hack codes.” The title of this article is partially tongue-in-cheek, because with Facebook, the rules change so often that one “Facebook hack” code that works today will likely not work tomorrow.
Facebook designers change links and features at whim – and you’re left trying to guess what’s coming next and why your link or plug-in no longer works.

I’ve previously written a couple of articles here about Facebook, such as the controversial method on how to view private Facebook profiles, or how to email mobile photos to your Facebook account. However, in addition to those tips, there are other codes and features that aren’t immediately obvious to most users – so I wanted to provide a list of the top 6 of my favorite Facebook “hack” codes and tips to other Facebook enthusiasts out there.

#1 – The Konami Code Lens Flare Hack
This is a rather silly hack, but if you’re visiting friends who may not be very computer savvy –
this is a very easy way to impress them with your hacking skills. Borrow their computer
(or bring your laptop), log into your Facebook account, and then on the computer keyboard just
type the following key sequence of arrows and letters exactly:

Then, click around on your Facebook page, or scroll up and down the page
(this seems to work best), and you’ll discover a pretty cool display of lens flare effects.

Oddly, the effect isn’t horribly annoying because it disappears pretty quickly when you
really need it to. It isn’t the most impressive hack though, because it’s probably the most
common one mentioned across the net – but it’s still kind of cool and fun to play around with.

#2 – Aye, Make Yer Profile a Pirate’s Page You Landlubber!
The second profile hack is also one of the easiest to implement. Facebook offers users the
ability to transform their Facebook pages into any language that they like. If you scroll down
to the lower left corner of your profile page, you’ll see your current language setting. Click on this,
and you’ll have a list of all languages available to you. Notice the English Pirate option?

Ahoy matey – yer now a Cap’n! Now as you go through your profile page you’ll notice some
pretty hilarious pirate variations.

Now, the wall is the Plank, your profile is the Cap’n’s Log, and you can now either
click a post as pleasin’ to me eye (like) or blabber t’yer mates (comment).
It certainly removes the “boring” factor from your old standard Facebook pages.

#3 – Upside Down Status Updates
If you’ve been on Facebook long enough, you’ve probably noticed a few people posting upside down
status updates. They sure do think they’re clever don’t they?! Yes, you too can be the envy of all
of your friends and family by posting your updates so that people have to look silly by tilting their
heads upside down so they can read it.

Most of the people you’ve seen doing this have likely installed a Facebook app just to do so.
However, I dislike installing apps because you always have to provide permissions to those
applications to access your profile. A better approach is to use the free online application at
FlipText to generate your upside down status update.

Simply copy the upside down text from the lower text box, paste it into your Facebook status box
and post!

#4 – Download Complete Photo Collections From Your Friends’ Profiles
If you have a lot of friends on Facebook, you may not have the time to keep up with all of the new
family photos they’ve posted – but you are very interested in them and would love to have them stored
in your own private photo collection to review later. Well, thanks to a very cool FireFox plug-in call
ed FacePAD, you can do just that. The add-on is awesome, and I would recommend that anyone with the
resources to do so should send in a contribution to Arthur Sabintsev for his efforts.

After you install the FacePad plug-in, make sure you select Tools->Add-Ons, and configure the
options for FacePad so it has your correct Facebook language. Then, all you have to do is go to
your friend’s photo albums, right-click on the title and select “Download Album With FacePAD.”
That’s right, you’re not downloading a single picture – but an entire album.

Once you do, FacePad downloads every single image within that album into the download folder
you’ve configured in FireFox. Don’t forget to organize all of those photos using JetPhoto, as
recommended earlier by Jeffry.

#5 – Schedule Facebook Status Updates With Sendible
Do you like to keep your Facebook profile active, but you’re coming down with a cold and may be
offline for a few days? Maybe you’re taking a trip and won’t be anywhere near a computer for a week.
Or maybe you’ll be playing hooky from work and traveling, but you want your colleagues and boss to
think you’re stuck at home sick. Accomplish any of these wishes by using Sendible to schedule your
Facebook status updates. This is an application Daniel covered earlier, so check out his article
for more details.

But for Facebook specifically, once you sign up with Sendible, just click on Facebook and provide your
Facebook login details. Sendible connects directly with your Facebook account.
The, under “New Messages” click on “Status Updates“.

On the next page you can schedule out as many updates as you’d like! This service is
awesome – and you can distribute scheduled updates to a number of social networks including MySpace,
Blogger, Twitter and more.

#6 – Hide Your Online Status From Certain People
Look, don’t feel bad about it. When I first joined Facebook I left my online status wide open.
After a couple of weeks of getting inundated with nonstop chat requests, I simply turned off my
online status completely. Problem solved. Except, there really were certain people I wouldn’t mind hearing from – is it really fair for a few chatterbox buddies to ruin your chances for communicating with everyone? Well, there is a way for you to selectively block your online status from certain

All you have to do is open up your chat icon in the lower right corner of your Facebook display,
click on Friend Lists, and create a new list called “BlockList.” Make sure after you create it that it’s configured under
“Display these lists in Chat.”

Now, all you have to do is either click “edit” and add the friends you want to block, or if they’re already online,
just click their name and drag them under this new list. Once you’ve got everyone there who you want to block from
see your online status, hover your mouse over the green dot to the right and click on “Go Offline.” Now, you appear offline to only those certain friends.

Facebook, unlike MySpace, is not really easy to tweak – which is actually a good thing. Gone are the days of those horrid eye-bleeding pages with pink flashing backgrounds and instant music that you can’t turn off. However, the tweaks and plug-ins in the list above offer at least a few ways to customize your Facebook account and usage
to suit your life and your personality.
