Social media is a huge part of our lives and we take it for granted. Instagram started as a simple photo-sharing site but has grown into an app that can be used to document moments, share stories, and connect with people all over the world. But did you know that you can also pull off some harmless pranks through it?
Whether you have more than a thousand or as little as 15 followers on Instagram, it’s always important to make their interaction with your account worthwhile. Think of it as something like this: they made time to click on your profile and to hit that follow button. With that in mind, it is important to give them something in return, and what better way to do that than by giving them creative and fun Instagram pranks to keep them entertained (and hopefully not annoyed with you) while scrolling through their feed.
Fancy some prank ideas outside Instagram? Here’s how to fake whatsApp chats, conversations to prank friends. These apps are guaranteed to bring fun to the table with just a single click! Right, onto our list of top Instagram pranks:
Make Your Followers Think You’re On A Vacation
If you want to make your followers jealous or if you’re trying to ditch a night out with your friends, you have to try this prank idea. This prank will involve using Instagram’s geotagging feature and making your friends believe that you’re somewhere far for a vacation. All you have to do is download a photo from one of your dream destinations – let’s say Paris – and post it on your Instagram feed while geotagging the location ‘Paris, France’ and adding a very believable caption. If you want to up your Instagram prank game, you can use Photoshop (only if you’re good at it) and edit yourself onto one of your desired photos. Trust us, your followers will believe that you’re on a vacation with this one!
I Have A Big Announcement Prank
You’re going to want to sit down for this Big Announcement Prank. All you have to do is post a photo or video in your Instagram feed of you posing as if you’ve achieved an important milestone, then lead with a caption that is interesting and long enough that will make people wait anxiously until their curiosity gets the best of them – only to find out that there really is nothing to celebrate!
You can also bring this prank to your Instagram stories. Just post a photo along with the caption stating that you have a very big and important announcement to make later, but the catch is you’re not really going to post an announcement and that your followers are actually waiting for nothing!
PS5 Filter Prank
Well if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to get even with your friends who were bragging about their new Playstation 5, the best revenge is – you guessed it – making them believe that you actually bought one, too! All you have to do is to look for Instagram’s catalog of filters and look for the one named “Fake PS5” and it should immediately show up. What’s great about this filter is that it really looks like the real thing and it is definitely going to make most of your followers believe that you bought one for yourself.
Annoy One of Your Followers
Do you have a friend who has figured out how to make their social media life an absolute living hell? That’s what this next trick will do. Just go through all of one of your follower’s posts on Instagram, like them, then comment underneath saying something funny or insightful about whatever they posted just so it seems as if someone else was really commenting. There’s a good chance that your friend will be unable to use their phone for the next 30 minutes. The best part about this pranking idea? It is completely harmless!
Instagram Name Change
This next Instagram prank idea is one of the most recent and popular trends. The logic behind it involves fooling someone to change their Instagram name twice in a row, something like “pooplover” or “dungeater”. But there’s just one problem: they are only able to change into two different usernames for fourteen days before the system blocks them!
I Met A Celebrity!
For this next Instagram prank, we advise that you ask for help from someone who can put a bit of Photoshop skills into action. All you have to do is ask them to edit your photo together with a celebrity you’ve been dying to meet. Once you already have your edited photo with you, go ahead and post it on your Instagram feed along with a caption like “Look who I bumped into! It was nice meeting you, @taylorswift13! Hope you have an amazing day xoxo” and wait until your friends comment saying how lucky you are.
THAT Annoying Follower
Last, but definitely not least, on our list of Instagram pranks is being THAT annoying follower – you know – the one who’s posting a photo every single minute. For this prank idea, you have to download at least 20 different photos you can find across the internet and post them every minute along with varying captions. This is a very fun Instagram prank as this will keep most of your followers’ feed bombarded with random photos. Just a disclaimer: we aren’t liable for any loss of followers so better keep your account ready for any backlashes!
