Social network Facebook has launched a new feature on its Stories feature that will help users add digital birthday cards, photos or videos to a story celebrating birthdays of their near and dear ones. The company says that nearly 500 million people use Facebook Stories every day.
"We're launching birthday stories globally, a way for friends, family and everyone in your community to add digital birthday cards, photos or videos to a story celebrating your big day," Jehan Damji, Product Manager at Facebook, said in a blog post. To use this feature, just tap on the birthday notification, shoot or upload a photo or short video or use one of our digital birthday cards and you've instantly got a birthday wish. You can even add a music sticker to give your story a "Happy Birthday" soundtrack.
"Then, your wish gets added to your friend's birthday story, creating a personalized slideshow for them," said the company.
