Facebook is rolling out a new way to say “happy birthday,” and it got a little sweeter with one local cupcake shop.
To celebrate their new feature, the social media giant partnered with 50 bakeries across the country to give away free treats Friday, and Bliss Cupcakes in Fayetteville joined in on the sweetness.
Owner Flint Harris said he’s excited to be a part of the birthday feature roll-out.
“Everybody is familiar with the brand Facebook, so to have them be in Fayetteville at Bliss is really exciting on a Friday afternoon with lots going on this weekend,” said Flint Harris, owner of Bliss Cupcakes. “So getting to be a part of that is really exciting for us, and we’re excited to see the new birthday roll-out going on.”
The new feature will allow users to add a digital birthday card, photo or video to their Facebook story.
