You have to love April Fool’s Day on the Internet. This past year, some big names pulled some pretty amazing pranks. Here are just a few we remember from 2013:
The spoilers did not disappoint today either.
Now never one to be left out, this year we did a prank of our own. We named PinAlerts for one day as WANP! & Co., a not-so-clever acronym for “We Are Not Pinterest & Company.” We created a logo, redirected PinAlerts.com users to www.wanp.co, and even changed all our social media accounts with our fictitious branding. As our first April Fool’s joke it was a lot of fun, and hopefully not our last.
Part of that joke did hold some truth though. We really are holding a contest to come up with a new name. Obviously, if WANP! & Co. is the best we can come up with, we need help! Who better to help us than our users who are familiar with our company and the benefits we provide?
We will be collecting suggestions over the next few weeks. As soon as we feel confident that we have a selection to choose from, our team will reconvene, select a name, and then hand the winner a brand new beautiful iPad Air.
So get your creative juices flowing and send us your suggestions by clicking here for your chance to win! (And no WANP! & Co.—one day was enough!)
