Why? It doesn’t really matter, but you can change your Facebook language for the day to commemorate this special occasion.

1 – Go to “Settings” found under the arrow in the upper right corner of your page.


2 – Choose “Language” on the left rail.

3 – Click “Edit” at the top right across from “What language do you want to use Facebook in?”


4 – Under the dropdown select “English (Pirate)”


5 – Click “Save Changes”

You’ll instantly notice the piratey replacements; what once said “Security” is now “Methods o’ Defense.”  And were you used to “search” you will now “Scour fer scallywags, ports ‘n’ various sundries.”

Have fun!
