Facebook Easter Eggs: Pirate Language, Turn Facebook Upside DownFacebook is not as famous for its Easter eggs as Microsoft is, 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. To enable Pirate Language in Facebook, login to Facebook, click on the down arrow at the right of the top navigation bar, click on Account Settings, click on Edit at the right of the Language option, and in the Primary Language dropdown menu, select English (Pirate) located somewhere near the bottom and be the captain of your pirate ship. Update: English Pirate is no longer available as a language option on Facebook.

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". Update: English Upside Down is no longer available as a language option on Facebook.

Show Facebook Status Updates only to Specific People or Hide them from someoneFacebook gives you the option to show your status updates to only the people you wish. To do so, click on your Profile Picture at the right of the top navigation bar. Go to Privacy Settings by clicking the Settings & privacy option and clicking Settings. Then click on Privacy in the left navigation bar. Then, in the Your activity section, click on the Edit link next to the "Who can see your future posts?" option. Then, customize who you wish to show your posts in the future. You can also hide your statuses from specific people by adding their name in the Don't share with option under Custom settings. You can also individually change the audience of your posts. To do so, go to the post whose audience you wish to change and choose a different audience by clicking on the Audience selection option available at each post.
Hide your past posts so that only your friends can see themNow you can also customize your past posts so that only your friends can see your past activity. To do this, open Facebook Privacy Settings and under the "Limit the audience for posts you've shared with friends of friends or Public?" section, select "Limit Past Posts."
Tag people in Status Updates, Wall Posts, Comments or TextTo 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".
