After years of using scheduled Birthday reminders and todos for sending messages and physical Birthday cards, I looked online for a service to simplify. I was also keen to increase the likelihood of messages and Birthday cards arriving on the right date. This great app helps you automate Happy Birthday messages on Facebook.
It’s quick and simple to sign up and then you can get into the joy of tailoring messages to friends with an upcoming birthday. The app lists friends in order of the next Birthday coming up.
If their Birthday is today, you can send a message or schedule posts. The post is added to your Facebook wall on the date and includes a tag of the person who’s Birthday it is.
I’ve scheduled posts for the next month of friends’ birthdays – good fun!
Turning on this app was a test. I wasn’t overly comfortable posting on my wall so all of my friends could see a post that may not be of interest.
The delightful surprise from this experiment is that mutual friends have seen and liked the post (and added their Happy Birthday messages). I love an experiment that works!
Automate Happy Birthday messages on Facebook
Acknowledge Facebook friends’ Birthdays easily. Never forget a Birthday. Feel the joy of seeing someone delight in your message!
I’m still on the hunt for a service that will automatically send Birthday cards. If you know of one, let me know!
Keen to see you fly high online and in life,
