Facebook is saying goodbye to boring ‘HBD’ posts and hello to personalized birthday VIDEOS in an effort to break robotic habits and encourage more intimate communication online. Sounds pretty straightforward, right?Trust us, this is one Facebook change you’re going to want to embrace!
Thanks to the Birthday Cam, routine timeline birthday posts are so last year. With this new Facebook feature, users are encouraged to ditch the old habit of typing “HBD” or just “Happy Birthday!” on a friend’s profile (aka the least human way to interact with a person) and start recording quick Snapchat-like birthday videos for friends. Fun,right?
However,this feature is only available on iOS but will be introduced later to Android users.
