Trick your Steam Friends!

This is a little something me and my friends discovered. This little trick can be used to fool some of your Steam friends into thinking you have games you don't :)

Step 1: In your Steam Library, click "Add a Game" in the bottom left
2 - trick your steam friends!

Step 2: Browse for a non-steam game or program. I chose World of Warcraft for this.
3 - trick your steam friends!

Step 3:Right Click the game and go to Properties. Name the game whatever you like
I chose "Call of Duty: Ghosts - Multiplayer", as at the time of posting, this game isn't released :)
4 - trick your steam friends!

Step 4: Play the game. It will tell your friends that you're playing whatever you typed. Gullible friends will write messages of rage :)
5 - trick your steam friends!

Final Thoughts
I can verify that you DO see the popup even for non-steam games. So if I was already playing and you signed in, it would tell you, and if I started playing it would also say so.

I'm not 100% sure if the popup says "non-steam game" or not, or whether you have to check the friends list. Either way, it's a quick troll to fool simple people :)
