Facebook recently added a new feature that allows users to send each other personalized birthday messages. While many people rely on Facebook for birthday reminders, these reminders are usually followed by simple birthday greetings. Now there is a new feature that allows users to add a little bit more personality to their birthday wishes.

As of today, Facebook users will be able to record 15-second videos that can be posted directly to their friend's profile. To send personalized birthday messages, users simply visit the profile of their friend and select the option to record a video. While the videos are only 15-seconds long, they provide a great way for users to add a personal touch to the standard Facebook birthday post.

The new feature demonstrates how social platforms such as Facebook are gradually adding more opportunities for personalization.
