Google Buzz Idea: Happy Birthday

October 14, 2010


Ok, so it isn’t anyone’s birthday but I thought that it would be great if Google Buzz sent out a post on your behalf to all of your friends, saying “Happy birthday”. This would be pretty special and unique to Buzz because it would allow users to know that it is your birthday and gives them one post to be able to say happy birthday to you.

Since it would be in your feed, it would make sure that you saw it. This single post could be decorated a special color or have animated confetti like on the Google Profile page so that it is a “special” post for others to see.

Obviously this would have to be a feature that you can have turned on/off so that if you wanted to keep your date of birth private.

Would you want this? or do you think it would be too much?
