Happy Birthday to me from Facebook…

February 10, 2008

My birthday (Feb 2nd – Groundhogs day!) just passed… what was special about this birthday was Facebook…

I got something around 30 Happy Birthday wishes from (yes, yes, I know that’s not even a significant number on Facebook these days…) a list of ~480 friends (in other words, 6.25% of my listed Facebook friends)… interesting ratio… only 6.25%. hmm

but, still… 30 is usually a lot more than I get every year so that was pretty cool to see…

The other interesting thing to point out is that with about 480 friends, it is someone’s birthday almost every day… some days of course have more than a couple of birthdays… Thanks to facebook this can all be tracked… I know for a fact that other than a few very close people, I didn’t know anyone else’s birthday until Facebook dawned… welcome to the age of information?

  1. Happy belated birthday, Aydin!

    As for Facebook, a friend from work planned a BD lunch for me last November… (my birthday is actually a month later) I must have selected the wrong month in my FB profile. oops.

  2. I completely agree
