Make Facebook talk like a pirate!

Real pirates don’t say “What’s new feed”, they say “Captain’s log“. They do not “log out” but “abandon ship” and they don’t have “friends” but “hearties“.

If you’re a buccaneer with a Facebook account (swashbucklers steal laptops and WiFi too, you know) then here’s a golden tip! A humorous language option called English (Pirate) turns your inbox into a “Bottle o’ messages” and shows the dates of upcoming “Grog fests” (instead of birthdays). The not-so-hidden Facebook easter egg can be found -as shown in the screenshot below- in the primary language dropdown list of the language setting in your account (direct link).

Now that you’ve “pirated” your Facebook, all you need a pirate name. So check out our Facebook application which transforms names into male pirate names or female pirate names.
