People have always gone to Facebook to connect with friends, share common interests, talk about everyday life, and celebrate important moments like birthdays. Facebook today launches Birthday Stories around the world: a new kind of Story where friends, family and everyone in your community can add virtual birthday cards, photos or videos to a Story to celebrate their birthday. The result is a visual, striking, interactive and fun happy birthday message; it’s like receiving a personalized birthday card from all the people who are important to you, anywhere in the world.
The Facebook community has already shown how Stories’ birthday messages can be creative and enjoyable, such as a set of funny pictures or a video reminding old birthdays that friends celebrated together. Sharing these fun photos, videos and keepsakes can make a birthday much more special and strengthen the bonds between friends and family.
Tap the birthday notification, take or upload a photo, record or upload a short video, or use one of Facebook’s virtual birthday cards: you will now have a birthday message. The message is added to your friend’s Birthday Story by creating a personalized multimedia birthday presentation for him.
