From Prank Movie Promotions to Awkward Food Picture Pranks

 - Jan 13, 2014
These social media prank ideas are ingenious ways to one-up someone who’s left an inappropriate or embarrassing message as you on Twitter or Facebook, after you’ve forgotten to log out of a site.

There’s plenty of different social media experiments that conducted by prank master/YouTuber Jack Vale alone to inspire you. His pranks center around taking personal information that people unwittingly shared publicly on social media and makes it seem like he is psychic. If you can get a stranger in on this, your friends will be baffled about how this information was recovered.

As well as being a fun way to mess with your friends, these social media pranks can also be adapted by brands with a good sense of humor. One hilarious example of this is the Chipotle Twitter account, which was made to seem like it was hacked. This stunt was fully controlled by Chipotle and in turn, drew a ton of attention before the start of one of its new campaigns.
