I typically try to hide the fact that it’s my birthday. I go as far as to block people from posting on my Facebook wall. I also hide my birthdate in my settings. Mostly so I can see who really remembers. I thought I had it disabled today because I got a few messages from people who I would expect. But then the birthday well wishes started flooding in.
Facebook is really good for remembering people’s birthdays and guilt tripping you the next day that you forgot to wish someone a happy birthday. But let’s not forget the main purpose of Facebook is to go on religious and political rants so you have no friends left to wish you a happy birthday.
Find your birth date and click the lock.
Enjoy your loneliness.
