Four Facebook Easter Eggs

My friend at Facebook showed me these two neat tricks (easter eggs) built-in to Facebook. I’ve also included two more common easter eggs that I’ve discovered elsewhere on the internets.

1. Show load time of your page in milliseconds:

Just scroll down to the bottom of your News Feed to the bottom left and hover over the copyright symbol.


2. Show internal host IP address:

Just hover over the year.


3. Lens Flare Mode:

Enter the Konami code with your keyboard (↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B, A, ENTER) while on Facebook – anywhere but inside of a text box. You should see a cool lens flare effect when you click anywhere on the page.


4. Pirate Mode:

Scroll down to their very bottom and click on English (US) or whatever your current language is. A pop-up menu will prompt you to choose a new language. Among the choices are English (Pirate) and English (Upside Down). Enjoy.

  2. So, what does the text that appears when hovering over the copyright mean now? Internal IP and load times aren’t available anymore 🙁 it’s a funky hash/id of some sort.
