Wishing a friend happy birthday on Facebook could get your account hacked and your private info stolen, a new survey has found.
Facebook is a good way of keeping track of birthdays. This is because most people sign up using their real birthdate, and then opt to share it on Facebook. So you can simply rely on Facebook notifications rather than referring to a calendar.
Until now, your choices of birthday greeting have been limited to posting on someone’s wall. Maybe with a couple of emojis or a GIF to spice things up a little. However, Facebook is now offering a new way for you to wish someone a Happy Birthday.
Facebook’s new method for wishing someone a Happy Birthday utilizes Facebook Stories. Which are the ephemeral posts which sit atop your News Feed. Facebook Stories usually comprise of a photo or video, making them a more visual way of using Facebook.
From now on, when one of your close friends (as identified by Facebook) has a birthday, you’ll be invited to wish them a Happy Birthday. If you tap on the notification you’ll be invited to take a photo or short video and customize it to your heart’s content.
There are lots of ways to customize Birthday Stories, so you can personalize yours to the recipient’s tastes. You can even add a music sticker to add a soundtrack. And if you’re struggling for inspiration, you can use one of Facebook’s digital birthday cards.
You could technically already use Facebook Stories to wish someone a Happy Birthday. However, Facebook has now formalized the procedure, adding birthday notifications to the Stories tray, ways to customize your Birthday Stories, and a selection of birthday cards.
In the post on the Facebook Newsroom announcing Birthday Stories, Facebook explains why it’s introducing the feature. Apparently, 500 million people now use Facebook Stories every day, so it makes sense to help people use Stories in more imaginative ways.

You know the most unimaginative thing on Facebook in this modern world? Posting Happy Birthday on someone’s Facebook wall.
It’s a birth anniversary of your friend, and people (not you, People!) can’t even come up with single witty sentence or other ways to say happy birthday? Well, not anymore.
Do you believe we should all aspire to change the world in our own ways? This is my teeny-tiny effort to do just that.
Now, getting to the point, there are lots of different ways to wish happy birthday to a friend on Facebook. And let me just say it right now, literally, anything is better than the plain “Happy Birthday”. No wait! Actually, shorter versions such as “happy bday, HBD” are even worse.
Now, the effort you’re willing to put-in will directly depend on the closeness of your relationship. And that’s totally acceptable. While some friendships can be pleased with one witty line, others will require bit more effort than that.
So, here are some birthday wish ideas to choose from.
This is currently the most popular trend on Facebook. Those who want to show that they care, make an effort to find photos from the past and post it on birthday person’s wall. You can then caption the photo reminiscing the past, or you can think of some other message for your friend. Just don’t forget to write Happy Birthday at the end.
Friends move away but friendship still lasts, and we all have few of our close friends in distant lands. Best way to wish them a quick happy birthday on Facebook is to write a heartfelt message letting them know how special they are. You can dig up some inside jokes from the past, or just make a detailed wish for the life they long for.
Caution: Do not, any circumstance, use cliches.
Poetry seems to be coming back now, as more and more people are engaged in this art form. You can write a poem for the birthday person, but if that’s not your forte, you can borrow lyrics of songs and remix them to make them best fitting for your friend. Remember, it’s not some talent show that requires originality. It’s the gesture that counts.
An example of how to do it is:
There are plenty of songs with girls’ names right. So, just pick out the one that you think makes most sense for your friend. Replace that name with your friend’s name, and you’re already making great progress.
Note: Might only work if birthday person is female.
This is, by far, the most unique and creative way to make a birthday wish I can think of. Luckily, it hasn’t started trending all over social media yet, which it will soon. So, you’ll still be among the precious few to wish your friends with birthday videos.
I don’t just mean recording a video singing happy birthday. While that is still something you can do, I would suggest something more meaningful. Videos with a story-line are always entertaining and memorable to watch. You could make birthday videos about timeline of the person’s life, or you could highlight some particular aspect of the individual’s life with a thoughtful message at the end.
