    A serial entrepreneur and the owner of Desktop.com, Rolf Larsen purchased this domain name Top.desk for $185,000 and announced the same on LinkedIn.

    He also mentioned that the company owns desk.top, desktop.cloud, desktop.app which have previously acquired.

    What do you think of this move from some of the top companies?

    I don't think so! A professional won't do that, especially over LinkedIn

    You'd be surprised how many pros don't shy away from a good April fool's joke.

    Err... I don't think there is a .desk TLD, which makes me think the date of announcement does matter.

    Did they move the dislike button as well? I keep accidentally disliking people.

    Can't change the title of the thread now. There is no edit option now.
    But even the comment that was there sounded serious.
    Also, a founder like that who seems serious, and given that it wasn't facebook or Instagram, an April Fool prank was unexpected.
    However, when I opened the websites Desktop.com, I see that the website is still under development.
    Maybe he wanted some views on the domain name.

    I got April fooled, twice today!

    1) namePros website
    2) Top.Desk sale

    Any challengers who got fooled more? Lol
