Memes and Birthday Wishes on Facebook

A peek into the personal, fun side of ScLoHo.

If you are connected to me on Facebook and have had a birthday recently, I may have “memed you” on Facebook.

I’ll show you some examples in a second, but here’s the reason.

Facebook can be a wonderful tool to stay in touch with others and see what they are up to and share glimpses into your life too.

I am a pretty open book and will connect with both business and personal connections on my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Scott.Howard.aka.ScLoHo  along with Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.  But here’s something really cool about Facebook that you are aware of if you use it… Facebook tells you when your friends birthdays are so you can wish them a Happy one.

Because Facebook favors visual messages over text only messages in their algorithms, if you include a picture when you post, it will get more views.

So here’s what I started doing when I had the time.  When a friends birthday was coming up, I would search thru their Facebook photos and find one that was fun and playful.  Download it, (sometimes crop it) and then run it through an online meme generator and then post on on their Facebook page.

You can do this too in 5 minutes or less and create some extra smiles with your connections.  Take a look:
