We’re trying to get away from the negative connotation of prank calling, ideally performed by anonymous punks. Now it’s your friends and family and that’s what makes it really funny.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2010
Since its inception in 2006, the fun-filled pranking website PrankDial.com has amassed a massive following, with everyone from students to doctors looking to get in on the fun. The popular site allows users to send a variety of funny prank calls. With categories such as songs, movies and the very popular conversators, users have flocked to the site for entertainment often at work.
The site's hits have increased rapidly since being revamped in August of 2009. In the last 3 months alone the pranks have doubled from 5 to 10 million, at a rate of 70 thousand calls a day. PrankDial's founder, Fahim Saleh is shocked by the growth: “This was just a concept I had fun with – prank calling, you see I’m a huge prankster. I guess millions of people feel the same way.”
Visitors commonly share pranks online via Facebook, Twitter, and email. “This is really a social experience. We’re trying to get away from the negative connotation of prank calling, ideally performed by anonymous punks. Now it’s your friends and family and that’s what makes it really funny. People just want to ‘get back’ at each other, in a kind-hearted sort of way,” says Saleh.
The PrankDial arsenal continues to grow with applications for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android, which allow users to send pranks on the go. By continuing to update their content and features to feed the needs of their gag-hungry users, PrankDial plans to remain the most utilized prank calling platform.
