Facebook & Thnks

Birthdays are meant for celebrating. For years, Facebook has continually made sure we never forget our friends’ big day with a short but very effective push notification that says something along the lines of “Felix Jones and 4 others have birthdays.”  Facebook has saved us time and time again when we have forgotten to wish someone a happy birthday. We can quickly open Facebook and send a personal note or post a public message to their wall. Whew, problem solved.

But what about when we get a birthday notification for someone who deserves a little more than a “like” or “post”… a key client, an old coworker or even your best friends birthday. Now, you have a problem and it’s too late to send them a gift! Or is it…

Thnks lets you send last minute, thoughtful, hand-selected gifts straight from Facebook to any of your contacts. From premium wine for your top clients to Starbucks coffee and cake pops for your friend/coworker, we’ve got you covered!

Here’s how it works:

1. “Like”  Thnks Birthdays

2. On the Thnks Birthdays page, click “Send Message”

3. Choose a gift from the carousel of suggested birthday gifts

4. Choose your recipient and send the gift!

Note: if it is your first time sending through Facebook, the chatbot will prompt you to log in before you can send your gift.

Our go-to birthday gift is A Birthday Bundle – two Cake Pops and an Iced Caffe Latte from Starbucks. It is the perfect gift to make someone’s birthday just a little bit sweeter!

If you have any questions about how the Birthday Bot works, don’t hesitate to reach out! We would love to hear from you.
