This year, I got as birthday greetings
- 2 cards
- 2 emails
- 2 telephone calls
- 7 tweets on Twitter
8387 greetings on Facebook, plus 5 direct messages
I also got three automated emails from business that required my birthdate to register.
The people who greeted me on Facebook ranged from close family (including my mother, who also called) to new acquaintances at G.A. There's a lesson here about what works today.
