The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

So today is my birthday, and birthday greetings are rolling in on Facebook. It got me thinking:

The Good: It is really fun to hear from people that are old childhood friends, who I would have lost contact with years ago without Facebook.

The Bad: Some people (my own brother!) seem to think that sending a Facebook birthday greeting eliminates the need to call your loved ones on their birthday.

The Ugly: When someone else has the same birthday, and you see mutual FB friends post a greeting on theirs and not yours! Bwah ha ha ha!  (NOTE for the spazzes out there--I think it is funny, I am not actually hurt by this.  I am certainly guilty of this as well, given that some of my "friends" are old work acquaintances, etc that I am not close to in the slightest...)

What do other Facebook users think of FB birthday greetings? Are you guilty of posting a happy birthday on someone's wall that you really should be calling instead?!

I dont have family that I'm close to really, so I dont call many people for their b-day. I send a facebook message and if I have their phone number a text. I usually try to find a cute/funny happy birthday picture that applies to our relationship somehow and post it on their wall.

I think FB bdays are fun. Those that I am close with always get at least a phone call in addition to a FB funny.

This is my go-to FB bday card...
