On a friend's birthday, you may notice a notification on your Facebook home page encouraging you to write him a birthday message. Simply click the link and enter your message. When you press the Publish button, your friend's timeline is instantly updated with the greeting. His friends will be able to read it just like any other post.
You can also send birthday messages directly from the app by clicking the menu icon in the top-right corner of the screen, selecting Messages, and then clicking the red + symbol next to "Send Message." Type your message and select the person you want to send it to. That's it! Your friend will receive a notification that you sent him a message.
If you want to share some photos too, click the camera icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen, or use the photo library if you've already taken some pictures recently. Select the ones you want to share and click Send to start sending them to your friends.
Finally, if you want to make a video message instead, click the video camera icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen, or use your iPhone's camera if you have something you'd like to share. Follow the same steps as before to finish recording your message.
Your birthday friend will now appear in your news feed with an update about his birthday and your message.
Send a private greeting to a friend via Facebook Message. You may do this by clicking the Message button at the top of your home page, selecting Send a New Message, and then entering the name of your buddy. After you've typed your birthday greetings and included a picture, video, or link, click the Send button. Your friend will receive an email notification that you are thinking of them on their birthday.
Open Facebook on your PC. Go to Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/. Examine the birthdays for today. Scroll down until you see a list of individuals with today's birthdays on the right side of the page, then pick someone to wish a happy birthday to. Choose a buddy. Click on a person's name whose birthday is today. Enter a birthday greeting. Click on "Send."
Your friend will receive an email confirming that you wished him or her a happy birthday and will find your message on his or her profile page.
If you want to send a message to more than one person, repeat the previous step to create multiple messages. Then, click on the "Send" button once for each person you want to send a message to.
The person receiving the message will see that you have something to say about his or her birthday and can read your message if he or she chooses to do so. If you want to send a message to many people, it's better to use Twitter instead!
While there is no official Facebook tool for generating conventional cards, you may use the Birthday Buddy Google Chrome plugin to schedule birthday updates so that you don't forget a friend's birthday. You may also wish your pals a happy birthday straight on their Facebook sites. Open Google Chrome. Click the menu icon and select Settings. In the Privacy section, click the Content Setting button. Select the Allow local data to be set by websites option. Return to Facebook and try out some of the tools described here to find out how you can customize your Facebook experience.
