A guy shared a story about how he was upset that there was not a single one of his Facebook friends who wished him a Happy Birthday on his Facebook even though he has almost 3,000 friends on Facebook.
He claims to know all these friends in person in some point of his life and every year he will still get wishes from a few hundred of them on Facebook no matter what.
Here is the story
“This story goes back to a few months ago, but I only found out about my screw up a few days back.
It was my birthday a few days back and I got a handful of Whatsapp/Telegram messages wishing me a happy birthday, but noticed not a single person from Facebook had written on my wall.
I go about my day and check Facebook again after work but there was still nothing. I started to get just a little upset before it hit me.
A few months ago, my birthday came up in a conversation with my niece. She couldn’t remember when was it and it was driving her crazy to find out since I disturbed her by saying that she is heartless to forget her own uncle’s birthday. I was getting a kick out of it.
I remember rushing to Facebook and changing my birthday settings to “only me” since I thought she will go there to look.
As it turns out I never changed those settings back, so I’m assuming nobody got a notification that it was my birthday. I changed the settings in the evening when I realized, but it must’ve been too late to make a difference.
On the bright side, now I know who cares about/remembers my birthday without relying on social media. Oh and my niece was the first one to tell me happy birthday, so not all was lost.”
