It is quite fun to play pranks on your friends but when it comes to playing pranks on social media, the fun doubles. Ever since the concept of social media has emerged, we have witnessed several pranks go viral on the internet. Now, the idea of playing pranks on social apps has become a ritual.
Even though it also is so much fun to play pranks on your friends, family, and siblings as you get to see their reactions live, playing pranks on social media also has its own perks.
Just recently, an old Snapchat prank has resurfaced and users are having fun with it. If you have not heard about this prank earlier, here is everything you need to know.
Snapchat Tap To Load Prank
Snapchat is mainly used to share snaps and keep the streaks going. It is also known to most of us that snaps on this snippet-sharing app are set to auto-download and they get downloaded directly if you have an active internet connection.
So, whenever you receive a snap, you have to tap on it and you are good to go. Taking benefit of this Snapchat feature, users have started playing pranks on their friends.
Following the Tap To Load Prank, what Snapchat users do is, get a “loading image” from the internet. And then they start sending it to their friends. Alongside the image, they are adding a caption that creates an emergency situation thus the users get tricked really fast.
As the image shows a “loading” sign on it, the receiver gets tricked into believing that the image is not being downloaded following any internet issue or a glitch. The receiver keeps tapping on the image with the aim to download the content without realizing it already is being downloaded.
After struggling to get the image downloaded most Snapchat users have called the senders of the image in emergency only to hear that it was a prank. This prank has fooled several users online and it is spreading hastily.
The prank initially got viral on Snapchat in 2021, and now it has resurfaced on the snippet-sharing app.
