Birthdays and Social Media

The emergence of social media has added another dimension to how we celebrate personal events, particularly birthdays.

So here's one in anticipation of today...


  1. In line with the spirit of Birthdays. Most of the cake goes to others and we derive happiness sharing..facebook, linkedin, twitter, "blog comments?"...Keeping up the spirit through digital technology in the age of impossible distances even if it is next door. Happy Birthday!!!

  2. very aptly put. I also personally feel that the essence of the special days is lost this way. Suggestion : take a day's off from the social network and trust me, no one is going to mind it.
