It's my birthday today and so far I've had 6 (out of 200 and something friends).
Bit worried I might be unpopular.
hope you feel better mate!!!
because i didn't want to know how few.
damn this thread, reminding me how abjectly unpopular i am.
Got zero two years ago. Genuinely not been the same since.
happy birthday xx
like half of what I got in previous years. :(
maybe today's not really a day people go on facebook? I haven't looked at it yet today myself.
Anyway, try not to worry about it, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
FB is shite anyway.
Still got 150. Meh, not even arsed.
only get about 3 or 4 off Facebook and irl too.
I wouldn't worry about it too much.
are doing this in a roundabout way to boast and big yourself up over others who have less than 6 messages.
I hope you have an unhappy birthday you tosser, i have to save my best wishes for myself.
;D Only joking..:) have a moderately OK birthday, whoever you are.
if you haven't then you can't expect anyone to remember
right now I feel as though my whole existence up to now has meant fuck all to the majority of people I've met.
I'm know I'm not exactly David Watts among my ex-school/uni peers, it's just not nice being reminded that in reality you really are not very popular at all. Especially on a weird day that's meant to be sacred/holy/whatever...
There is a strategy to maximising it, wait for them to roll in naturally, in the afternoon start 'liking' the posts, not all at once but spread out so there is constant your birthday stuff in other peoples feeds, early evening post a 'cheers' status to mop up the last few stragglers. Optional follow up status the next day about how good a day it was.
I'm weirdly paranoid though so have it set so people can't see others posts on my wall, suspended this policy this year and got about thrice as many
But by spreading them out, how many minutes should I wait between liking each post? I'm just worried some people might feel left out if their posts aren't liked as soon as the other people's.
I'm also a bit worried the disappointing turnout is down to me saying stupid things on FB while drunk (and revealing fierce lefty opinions I have from this recent election... seems like nobody likes a lefty)
i like this guy ^
was bored this year and realised i wasn't gonna get any actual presents so i unhid it, got about 14
seems unlikely that he even remembers who i am but he still took the time to wish me a happy birthday
think of the endless evil he's getting up to with it, you sap
gonna follow TTF's method and see if I can get it up to 10 by midnight.
Down 10 on last year.
Happy Birthday posts are a distant dream.
your birthday. Start tomorrow.
scraped double digits with 10
