One of the best ways to win at social media is to use humor and make fun of your own quirks. Humor shows not only that you are human, but also that you pay attention to what people say about you.

Today being April Fools' Day, I decided to keep a close watch on some big companies to see what they would come up with. Google emerged as the clear winner with close to 10 pranks. However, Facebook, Twitter, and Microsoft made their own marks with some very funny announcements.

Here is a list of memorable moments. Feel free to add more links!

Cendrine: Yes, I meant if you have reviewed and written a specific blog post on the Listly tool and how to use it in your blogging and creating of new content.

Yes, I reviewed the tool a long time ago, and actually interviewed Nick Kellet (its creator) as well. Using Listly is simple. It's a list creation tool. So the sky's the limit in terms of what you can do.

Personally, I am not so much into April Fools' Day jokes, but some of them are pretty funny. Have you written a piece on how to use the service List.ly?
