According to a survey of young adults by a candy company called Maynards, technology makes it easier for people to prank their friends . . . but the old-school ways are still the best.
--40% of people between 18 and 24 said that technology makes it more likely that they'll play a joke on their friend . . . and three of the top five pranks can be done with a cell phone. But the most popular prank is the oldest one in the book.
--Here are the five most-popular pranks:
#1.) Jumping out and scaring someone.
#2.) Prank phone calls.
#3.) Posting something embarrassing on a friend's Facebook account when they leave their page open. 13% of all people have had this prank pulled on them . . . including two out of three 18-to-24-year-olds.
#4.) Sending fake texts from a friend's phone when they're not looking.
#5.) Photobombing a friend's picture.
(--That means jumping into the background right before they take the picture.)
