Facebook wants you to wish your friends a happy birthday with a video

Facebook is rolling out a new way to send birthday messages to your friends. Now, when you go to message someone on their birthday, you'll be prompted to record a special birthday video message, rather than the traditional text post. Videos can be up to 15 seconds long, and you can add a number of different birthday-themed extras to spruce them up.

Once you're done, just post the video as your normally would. This feature, currently iPhone-only, is rolling for users now, so don't be surprised if you don't see it right away.
