At least 500 million people use Facebook stories per day. From now-on-wards this feature is going to be more interesting. Now the first question that will come in your mind is HOW? Notably, Facebook on Tuesday launched a new feature on its Stories feature that will help users add digital birthday cards, photos or videos to a story celebrating birthdays of their friends, family and everyone in their community.
In a statement, the company said that the new feature will provide a happy birthday message that’s visual, memorable, interactive and fun. It will be similar to getting a personalised birthday card from everyone you care, regardless of where they are located in the world. Sharing such photos, videos and memories can make a birthday even more special, the social media giant added.
"We're launching birthday stories globally - a way for friends, family and everyone in your community to add digital birthday cards, photos or videos to a story celebrating your big day," said Jehan Damji, Product Manager at Facebook, in a blog post.
To use this new feature, just tap on the birthday notification, shoot or upload a photo or short video or use one of our digital birthday cards, and you’ve instantly got a birthday wish.
You can even add a music sticker to give your story a “Happy Birthday” soundtrack. Then, your wish gets added to your friend’s birthday story, creating a personalized slideshow for them.
Importantly, to celebrate the launch of the new birthday stories feature Facebook has partnered with bakeries across the US to give away free treats today. The company is also taking over Flour Shop in New York City in the US and turning it into a Birthday Stories Bakery from Facebook featuring free sweets. Facebook has also invited everyone to join them by reaching a participating location, where they will show users on how to use the new feature.
