[Watch] Facebook to Celebrate Your Birthdays with Recap Videos

889

New Birthday Recap Videos from Facebook has plans to make your birthday celebrations more engaging.  It has a preset birthday theme including birthday-related content extracted from the user’s account.

Facebook’s new 45-second “Birthday Videos” will show up in your feed the day after your big day, displaying “a magical birthday cake that lights up and comes to life” before bursting open to show the “top” happy birthday posts and videos sent by your pals.  Take note: These videos will only appear if at least three people shoot you a note on your birthday.

The only concern is that the threshold might be a little low.  Some people get hundreds of birthday well wishes, and their videos will probably be delightful.  But other users might feel weird if the video just shows three generic “HBD!” wall posts from people they never talk to. It trumps up something people do pretty thoughtlessly into a spectacle that might seem vaguely dystopian.

After you check out your video, you can choose to replace the photos or posts in it with the video editor, and then share it with friends if you want.  Earlier this year Facebook launched Birthday Cam, which encourages people to send videos instead of generic “Happy Birthday!” text posts.
