Wishing friends on Facebook on their birthdays can sound fun but I have stopped doing that since ages. Here’s why.
It turns out each day someone or other has a birthday which Facebook kindly reminds me of. Wishing each friend on my mile long friend list at the cost of precious time is a pretty lame idea. Okay they are all my friends but thing is, I would have never cared to wish all of them if it wasn’t for the convenience of Facebook. Plainspeak!
There is this friend who checks Facebook several times everyday only to check what is latest on the grapevine, which is cool, and to wish whoever on Facebook has a birthday, which is not cool. If it was me, I’d end up wishing 2-3 people per day! It doesn’t end with wishing, you have to follow it up for comments. Surely there are better things to busy your head with.
Let’s think from the point of view of the birthday boy/girl now. Firstly, wishing birthdays on Facebook walls is such a cliche! It is a total waste of wall space too. :-/ The more interesting stories get buried 2-3 days deep. Then there is the mammoth task of replying to each wisher! *yawns*
