I am sure that many of us have noticed that, when it's your birthday on facebook, you get a lot of "Happy Birthday" posts from people you barely know.
I am just wondering, why is this? What is the motivation behind said people? Do people just think it's the polite thing to do? Do people genuinely want to get back in touch? Do people have a crush on whoever they're wishing happy birthday too?
I ask this because, for me personally, the only people I wish happy birthday to on facebook are close friends, and girls I kind of have a crush on. Just wondering if this is similar for other people?

Well, the people whose name I see come on facebook are friends or acquaintances. I, personally, don't have many people that I don't actually know on facebook. That being said I find it a friendly jester to wish them well on their birthday - nothing more. I also enjoy receiving messages on my birthday from people I don't normally communicate with because it keeps our connection and it's nice to know they are thinking of me!Last edited by hopeforthebest1; 06-11-2015 at 04:38.
