Keeping track of friend's birthdays is a hell of a task for most of us. Although Facebook keeps reminding of upcoming birthdays, we easily tend to miss out wishing important people.
Here's an easy solution - BirthdayFb, a Facebook app that keeps track of your friend birthdays and automatically posts your birthday greeting on their walls. Here's what makes this app stand out-
- Configure and forget - set a message once for a friend and it will be sent every year on his birthday.
- Feels Personal - Unlike other similar apps, the messages doesn't have any link backs or advertisement text so nobody will know you are relying on a tool.
- Keeps you updated on wishes sent out via email.
Using BirthdayFb For Automated Birthday Wishes
Using the BirthdayFb app is a simple. Just 3 steps and you are done.
First you need to give the app permission to access your friend-list, birthdays and to post on their walls.
Once permissions are done, the app will read your Facebook profile and show you a list of upcoming birthdays.
To add an automated birthday message to a friend, click on the drop-down button against that person and select "Write Message". You can also go to the "Write Messages" menu and add birthday messages.
For messages, you can either choose from a list of generic messages or write your own personal message for each person. Mark any personal message as canned and it will start appearing in the generic message list.
You can also schedule message sending from the "Preferences" menu. Settings include selecting your timezone, message sending time slot and even deleting your account.
