Ask my friends if I remember their birthdays and you’ll hear a resounding NO for an answer. I’ve always had trouble keeping up with people’s birthdays. Since most of my closest contacts are on Facebook, I do get a reminder from Facebook, as well as my personal assistant tool Fellow Up that it’s someone’s birthday, but then again, I always check the updates pretty late, and therefore miss the moment. Luckily, I discovered an Android app that will ensure that I never miss another birthday again. In this post, let’s see how to auto schedule birthday wishes with Birthday Scheduler for Fb.
