Facebook Birthday Wishes: Examples to Write as Status Updates, on Walls and Posts

As almost everyone has a Facebook account nowadays, when it’s someone’s birthday we tend to use the social media website to wish them a happy birthday instead of, or alongside, the more traditional birthday card. It makes sense – it’s much quicker and easier to do this than buying or making a card and having to send it. You can even include a cute or funny video and image to go with it. That’s not to say there’s no place for the traditional greetings card but Facebook has definitely changed the way we say Happy Birthday.

However, even if you are going to post your birthday wishes on someone’s Facebook timeline or wall you still need to know what to say. Do you want it to be funny? Maybe something more unique and not the usual. You also need to consider who it’s for. If it’s a friend then the words you use will be different to an acquaintance. For example, wishing your best friend a happy birthday will probably sound a lot more heartfelt and informal than a work colleague you don’t know all that well. The same applies for family members or a boyfriend/girlfriend.

So if you aren’t sure how to wish someone a happy birthday on Facebook or what to put in a status then use some of the birthday wishes below. You can copy them directly and post them on timelines or walls or change them to fit your situation or the person who’s birthday it is.
Remember though, if there’s a birthday party don’t announce it all over Facebook, as that can really end in tears!
