Facebook Birthday’s: Why We All Know Mark’s and Not Our Friends’

​With Mark Zuckerberg’s birthday coming up I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about Facebook birthday’s as well.

With Mark Zuckerberg’s birthday coming up I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about Facebook birthday’s as well.

I don’t like posting my own information. Not my thing. My birthday can’t be seen, I don’t even have my full name up there. I find it hysterical when my birthday comes around and only a few people post on my wall. To me, that’s great! It means they actually remembered my birthday instead of Facebook actually reminding them.

It reminds me kind of a collection agency reminding its clients to pay its bills. “Remember, it’s your friend’s birthday today! Wish them a good day now!” No thanks. If I remember your birthday, I’ll give you a call or text. Don’t take it personally if you don’t get a comment or post from me wishing you a good day and hoping you get a bunch of presents.

Do we connect with people on social media that in reality we have no desire to associate with? Isn’t this a common notion we all deal with yet refuse to actually confront? How many times do we go through our “friends” and start purging the people we never talk to?

It really is crazy how many people think they are friends with everyone in the world but yet they hang out with maybe 10 friends at a time and no more. Generally these are the only people that will remember your birthday anyway. Do you really expect little Mark to remember your birthday when he moved away 15 years ago at the age of 6 and you found him on Facebook? Come now, are you crazy?

It would be a good experiment for everyone to try. Hide your birthdays and see who comments. Those who don’t aren’t worth your time. Don’t believe me? Try it.
