How To Stop Facebook From Announcing Your Birthday To Your Friends


By default, Facebook seems to be the most exposed of all social media sites about user information. Fortunately, privacy is given to restrict this publicity. Only access your account privacy settings, perform some tweaks here and there, determine which details other users have access to.

The knowledge exposed in this article will help users who may want to keep their birthday from others. It’s great to get birthday wishes from friends and loved ones on your birthday. Similarly, not answering all those good wishes would be rude. It gets tricky if those good wishes were sent via private chat, saying a hundred friends, and you’d have to address them one by one.

To avoid this circumstance, one can prefer to prevent their friends from receiving updates for their birthday. Close friends will always remember your birthday and wish you well. The average person said at most 20 close friends, and most people shouldn’t have a problem answering 20 good wishes.
