As usual on every April Fools day, the web will likely be loaded with a multitude of April Fools jokes and attempts at tricking their users. Although many people are now very well aware of the usual suspects that try to pull a fast one! The most well known being Google with their very creative attempts!
This year, what can be considered a kind nod towards Topeka, Kansas for changing their name to “Google, Kansas” in honor of attempts to bring the Google’s Ultra High Speed Fiber to their area, Google did the same in return by changing their name to Topeka!
As expected, there will be a large number of attempts around the web today! If you spot any, mention them in a comment below or contact me and I’ll update this post and give you credit (if you desire) with the find!
Please RETWEET this! Let’s get a good collection going!
