Digital greetings are a quick and simple way to wish someone happy birthday or tell them you miss them, but not quick enough according to Facebook. The social networking giant now has a text service to send a ‘Happy Birthday’ to someone’s Facebook wall, saving you all that time and effort of typing those 14 characters once a year.

4. 1,000 Foo’s fans rock out to ‘Learn To Fly’

5. Twitter thinks plagiarised jokes are no laughing matter

Be careful what you tweet as Twitter is now removing tweets containing plagiarised content. All you need to do is explain to Twitter what the content is, why it is your intellectual property and they will remove the plagiarised content. Stealing or copying tweets is also against Twitter’s terms of service, which could see your account blocked.
