How Do You Respond to Birthday Wishes on Facebook?

Your birthday isn’t like any other day; it is quite special to every person, let’s look at it from this point of view, apart from your name which everyone identifies you with, another important thing to every individual is their birthday. When someone remembers your birthday, you can’t help feeling that you’re special to that person.

To mark the significance of this day, Facebook makes it possible for people to write their good wishes on your timeline, thereby encouraging everyone to leave one or two sentences showing that they remember your birthday, and not just remembering your birthday, but they also want you to know that they wish you well on your special day.

Now, after they all post their birthday wishes on your timeline, it will make sense if you could reply or like their post on your timeline personally or individually, but in most cases where the friend list is almost up to five thousand (5,000), it might not be easy for you to reply to everyone individually. That’s quite serious because you want to make sure each of your well-wishers knows that you appreciate or acknowledge their good wishes on your timeline.

Thus, you can just come up with a message that will accommodate everyone and make them know that you appreciate their wishes. When you have this kind of message to post, you necessarily don’t have to reply to each and everyone who wished you. The message will do just fine, and everyone will know that you are not taking them for granted in any way.

There are some tips that you should have in mind while composing this message, While composing this message, make sure you show how you feel about their wishes genuinely because it will make them feel elated and esteemed.

How to Reply to all Birthday Wishes on Facebook Timeline

Another thing you should have in mind is that no matter how brief or short the message you want to post is, make sure it accommodates every one of your well-wishers. On Facebook, for instance, you don’t want to post something like, “Thanks to all my colleagues who posted a birthday wish on my Facebook timeline” this has successfully alienated others from being recipients of this post because you limited it to only a particular set of people, that is, your colleagues. So to avoid this kind of mistake and to ensure you comply with the facebook birthday response etiquette, you will do well if you could generalize the post first, then if you feel there is the need to specify some group of people, that should come after you’ve acknowledged everybody first.

However in a bid to accommodate and acknowledge every birthday wish you get, you don’t want to go on and on making mention of so many names, and as such, make your message too lengthy, the trick is to be brief and precise. What is of utmost importance in the whole message is the content, your content should show how grateful and appreciative you are without taking the recipients through the rigors of reading through an epistle to get the message.

Again, in this message, you should ensure that you show how grateful you are for their birthday wishes on your timeline, it’s not like I’m advising flattery, but then, you could just excite them a little bit to make them know that their birthday wishes on your timeline mean a lot to you. I’d bet you; they’ll be looking forward to doing the same or even more when your next birthday comes up.

Finally, don’t be too formal while composing this message, it’s no longer strictly formal when your friends post a birthday wish. On your Facebook timeline, and you, in like manner, should reciprocate the gesture while thanking them, a little slang or catchphrase here or there will do no harm, it will rather make you appear less uptight and make everyone who reads your post see you as such.
