pirateflagThe 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 How to View Private Facebook Profiles How to View Private Facebook Profiles Early last year I decided to join Facebook, and in doing so, I learned an intriguing fact about this fast-growing social network: Facebook profiles are usually private. Read More , or how to email mobile photos to your Facebook account How to Email Photos From Your Mobile to Facebook Account How to Email Photos From Your Mobile to Facebook Account As the Facebook phenomenon continues to grow, people are quickly becoming obsessed with keeping friends and family constantly updated regarding their status. Read More . 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: UP-UP-DOWN-DOWN-LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT-B-A-<Enter>

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?

facebook hack codes

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

facebook hack and codes

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.

facebook status fun

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 called 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.

facebook status fun

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 JetPhoto - Photo Management App with Tons of Great Features JetPhoto - Photo Management App with Tons of Great Features Read More , 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“.

facebook status fun

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 people.

facebook profile customise

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.”

facebook profile customise

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.

    I have been with a cheating spouse before and trust me I know how it feels, those suspicions are not mere paranoia. If you suspect that he is cheating, he definitely is..I hired a PI who helped me install monitoring bugs on his phone that diverted all his messages( facebook, whatsapp, text messages, and even phone calls) to my phone;(hacki` ) is the man for the job with a very high level of professionalism and highly reliable. I really enjoyed working with him and the few friends I told have been nothing but thankful to me for the referral

    Be warned, most of these so called hackers here are impostors, I know how real hackers work, they never advertise themselves in such a credulous manner and they are always discrete. I've been ripped off so many times out of desperation trying to get if my ex was cheating on me.finally my friend introduced me to a reliable hacker( cyberhacktivist1 gmail com )who work with discretion and delivers, he does all sorts of hacks but he helped me;
    -Hacked my cheating ass girlfriend email/facebook,he's also involved with everything hack related.
    -I have made him my permanent hacker and you can as well enjoy her services.
    You can contact him at cyberhacktivist gmail com for any hacking services and also endeavor to spread the good news on how he helped doing that,you're stopping the scumbags who call themselves hackers outhere.she's kinda picky though so make mention of the reference.grey referred you.thank me later

    A private investigator is the best person to find out if your husband is cheating.
    A private investigator can find out fast because they have GPS tracking devices to track your husbands location.
    They can get phone records such as deleted text messages. They can monitor their computer usage.
    The use hidden audio and video devices. They can send in female decoys to test their intentions.
    A private investigator will get the truth quick. Text 7603832605 for confidential consultation

    These aren't HACKS. These are EASTER EGGS. You aren't exploiting anything that isn't already there for you to EXPLOIT. By your rationale, you can HACK GOOGLE by entering words in the box and getting results.


    • Ryan Dube
      October 26, 2009 at 7:09 pm

      Hey Leon. First of all it depends how you define the word hack. You may or may not know there are multiple definitions related to computer programming.

      1. To chop or cut something by hacking.
      2. Informal
      a. To write or refine computer programs skillfully.
      b. To use one's skill in computer programming to gain illegal or unauthorized access to a file or network:"

      I would quote 2a - because what this article suggests is a way to refine your Facebook experience - hence a form of "hacking".

      Believe it or not words don't only have a single meaning - but considering the fact that you go around calling people you don't know "dipshit" on the Internet, I'd have to assume that you still haven't made it far enough in school to have learned that yet.

      September 22, 2009 at 4:09 pm

      Richard - one thing I did notice when using Konami was that if doesn't always show up well when you simply click the mouse. Take the sidebar and scroll up and down and you'll see the effects take over the whole screen - that's the best way to see it (at least in Firefox).

          If your having issues with the Kanomi code, try hitting the refresh button. It will clear out all previous keyboard clicks and then do the code fresh. Otherwise you might have hit something on the keyboard and then entered the code which would naturally fail. It worked for me on Firefox after I hit refresh.

        The konami Code didn't work for me either. Maybe it's OS dependent. I'm running Windows 7 Professional on a Compaq F700WM laptop.
