Snap away, millennials.

Your acquaintances will wish they were at the real, not fake beach with you.

2. Confess a "big secret" in a one-second Snap.

They'll know something happened, but they won't be sure what.

3. Tell lots of people you're going to take their photo, then take a video instead.

Then, create the ultimate April Fool's Day snap story.

4. Take selfies near people so they think you're photographing them.

Just be prepared for retaliation.

5. Announce a fake engagement in your Snap Story.

If you can't find a ring, just use a celebrity Snap.

6. Announce your fake birthday in your Snap Story.

7. Send a Snap that looks like it's for someone else.

Sit back and wait for the confused responses — or for someone to appear at your home with a bag of fertilizer.

8. Make viewers think their phone volume is broken by mouthing your words.

Tee hee.
