All of the messages sent to the Birthday Story will be put together, creating an entire slideshow of "happy birthday" messages that are visual.
By Jehan Damji, Product Manager
People have always come to Facebook to connect with friends and celebrate important moments, like birthdays. Today, we’re launching birthday stories globally — a way for friends, family and everyone in your community to add digital birthday cards, photos or videos to a story celebrating your big day. The result is a happy birthday message that’s visual, memorable, interactive and fun — it’s like getting a personalized birthday card from everyone you care about, no matter where they are in the world.
500 million people use Facebook Stories every day. This community has shown us just how creative and thoughtful birthday wishes can be — whether with a series of funny photos or a video reminiscing about past birthdays spent together. Sharing these photos, videos and memories can make a birthday even more special.
Just tap on the birthday notification, shoot or upload a photo or short video or use one of our digital birthday cards, and you’ve instantly got a birthday wish. You can even add a music sticker to give your story a “Happy Birthday” soundtrack. Then, your wish gets added to your friend’s birthday story, creating a personalized slideshow for them.
Birthday Stories Giveaway Day and Bakery Takeover
To celebrate the launch of birthday stories we’re partnering with bakeries across the US to give away free treats on May 10. We’re also taking over FLOUR SHOP in New York City and turning it into a Birthday Stories Bakery from Facebook featuring free sweets. It doesn’t need to be your birthday to join the fun, just come by a participating location and we’ll show you how to use the new feature. You can find more details here.
Wishing someone a happy birthday is an opportunity to be either interesting or boring—if you're posting or commenting on a social media.
7 Better Ways To Wish Someone Happy Birthday On Facebook
Sending greeting cards to your friends right from your Facebook profile is fun. Greeting card apps and Pages offer cards for all occasions, including birthdays, holidays, parties, relationships, celebrations, and friendships. You'll find cards that are humorous, loving, sexy, funny, and edgy.
The professionally designed cards are colorful, so they're bound to make an impression on your Facebook friends; you just add a personal message. With some of the cards, you can add audio and music for a little extra personality.
It takes just seconds to open a greeting card app or Page, pick a card, add your message, and send it on its way.
Sending a Greeting Card Using the Birthday & Greeting Cards App
Go to your Facebook profile page.
Type birthday & greeting cards in the search field at the top of the screen.
In the search results screen, select Apps.
On the Apps page, next to Birthday & Greeting Cards, select Use Now.
If prompted, review privacy information and agree to allow Facebook to access your profile.
Scroll through the page or use the dropdown menu to choose a card design.
You may refuse to share your friend list and email address.
When you find a card you like, select Send this Card. If this is your first time sending a card, you may be asked to sign up or log in.
The next page provides instructions for how to send the card. When you're ready, select Understand. Let's share.
In the Share on Facebook dialog box, select the dropdown menu at the top and choose Share on a Friend's Timeline. In the Friend field, type your friend's name. Under your name, type a message to your friend. Select Post to Facebook.
A confirmation message appears. After you send the card, your recipient sees the greeting card on their timeline.
Facebook Greeting Card Pages
You can also find Facebook Pages that will lead you to card sharing sites. Like the Birthday & Greeting Cards app, they offer an assortment of cards for all occasions. To access them, follow steps 1 and 2 above.
In step 3, instead of selecting Apps, select Pages. Choose one that looks appealing, and follow the instructions from there.
The process of sending a card from a Facebook Page follows the same general steps as listed above. Once at the company's website, you preview cards, select recipients, and choose the wording for your card. The sites have a Facebook button to link back to your friends' profiles.
You can use alternative terms in the search bar, such as free greeting cards.

Why you shouldn’t wish people happy birthday on Facebook
While Facebook is a means of keeping in touch with people who you already know, it is also a means of meeting and becoming friends with new people. These people can be part of a group, who share an interest that you have, they can share posts that you find to be relevant, or you can have other people in common with them.
Because friendship is important, sending Birthday Wishes should be a priority. When it is sent to a Facebook friend, it is a way of letting the other person know that the posts they have shared, the ones by you that they have liked, and the support they have given you through this social network, when they knew difficult times were happening in your life, mean a great deal to you. Located here are Birthday Wishes to send to the Facebook friends who have positively impacted your life.

It’s always a birthday cake, and I thought it could be something else for a birthday. So, I baked this special birthday pie for you;
If you are 30+ today, it’s time to start putting money aside for anti-wrinkle treatment, because I’m not sure your insurance would cover that.
Although you’re three decades old today, it’s still your birth day, right? So, it won’t be wrong if I say happy birthday baby, because you are born today!
If anyone says your wrinkles are increasing, just tell them this; point of correction, they are fine lines, not wrinkles. Happy birthday!
The older, the wiser. So, don’t be afraid of growing older. Happy birthday.

Ask a Question
How do I post a Happy Birthday message on a friends timeline?
I take it you're Facebook friends with your son.. If this is so, make a comment wishing him happy birthday. The moment you start typing his name, you'll be presented with the option of tagging him in the comment. As soon has his name appears, press Enter. This will place his linked, full name in the comment... Which you're then allowed to shorten to his first name if you so wish... If you're son has allowed others to post to his timeline, your message will automatically post there too. If not, he'll be notified that he's been tagged and offered the choice whether he'd like the post to be displayed on his timeline or not.
I don't want to comment on an old post. I want to go to post a new fresh Happy Birthday. How do I do that?

NY SON BIRTHDAY IS TODAY HOW DO I POST A GREETING

Posted about 4 years ago by Julie
I see that some of my friends were able to post "cards" as new posts on my timeline. However, I can not post a JacquiLawson card to a friend's timeline, as the...y say that FB won't allow it - I can only post it to my own timeline. So- how can I post something other than a text greeting to a friend?See more
This question has been closed.
All I'm trying to do is post a happy birthday message to a friends timeline (my son actually). It can't be that hard to do but i'm baffled. I have looked at all your questions from others and none of them address my problem. I guess i'm just an idiot.
