No, I wasn’t the birthday boy
Right now, you should normally start cursing and shouting at me, but please give me a few seconds to explain why I did this. Some of you have probably noticed my birthday being displayed as 22nd August 2011 on Facebook. Many rushed to my wall to leave a few words. Some txt’ed/gave me a call me or even came to meet me.
Really, thanks to all of you. Some of you said really good things 🙂 lol.
But, unfortunately, this was only a kind of experiment : I wanted to see how many among you actually remember
- my date of birth or
- remember having wished me only a few months ago (5 months to be exact *last year’s post*) or
- use the “See friendship” link.
Facebook has made “birthday” wishing some kind of daily routine. You log in early every morning. You see your friend’s name in the birthday section or your news feeds showing your common friends commenting on his status. Facebook has kindda spoiled the fun. Sure, it helps a lot in connecting people but today’s example clearly shows how much you really know your friends and vice versa.
Sometimes it might be useful to click on the “See friendship” link to view any interactions you had with your friend. Everything is displayed, from wall posts to photo tags and also, if you wished him/her on an earlier date 🙂
For example, CarrotMadman6 wished me twice this year and most of you fell in the same trap xD
Ok, you can now swear me now. As for me, I had a nice time, smiling at each and every wishes sent to me. Also, so glad that so many people actually care about me and filled my FB wall with all those wishes.
This has probably been one of my biggest jokes you actively participated.
Of course, big thanks to all those who remembered my birthday and did not wish me on the 22nd August 2011. True friends indeed 🙂
Take it cool. Chill!
Don’t forget the “Recommend” or “Share” buttons 🙂
