Facebook on May 9 launched a new feature on its Stories that will help users add digital birthday cards, photos or videos to a story celebrating birthdays of their near and dear ones. Nearly 500 million people use Facebook Stories every day.
"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," Jehan Damji, Product Manager at Facebook, said in a blog post.
To use this 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 personalised slideshow for them," said the company.
“To celebrate the launch of birthday stories we’re partnering with bakeries across the US to give away free treats on May 10,” the company added.
