Duno since when companies around us start to target on your birthday, some provide you promotions, some, simply wish you a "Happy Birthday" and some simply make you laugh out loud!
For example, I got a few emails saying Happy Birthday to me that includes my parents, Wattpad Team, a Job Search Site, NBA All access, etc. In addition I also get an SMS form HSBC, wish me a blessed birthday filled with happiness! (Thanks All!)
Different companies utilize various ways to wish their user Happy Birthday, and personally believes the above ways may be a bit old fashion. Below are some surprises for me and they are more out of the box and fun :)
Early in the morning, walk into Starbucks and grab my coffee, check in to +foursquare and the #4sq team wish me a happy birthday and they even know I look nice today :)
During my work day, would like to seek for something online, and hop to Google to perform a search, wa~la Thanks Google!
Am flattered and when I clicked on the Google Doodle, it brings me to my Google+ personal page notification and see some of my friends had also sent me birthday wishes, clicked on it and it returns a search page under hash tag #HappyBirthday which is to me. Again am super flattered!
However come in mind, isn't that a bit sketchy that you are getting all these emails, SMS and funky wishes from all these companies? Oh wait, I think I subscribe and tell them when is my birthday??!! or ...
Privacy is always an issue and of course beware of what you are sharing :)
A Very Happy Birthday to myself :)
