Birthday Reminders From Google+ Now Showing On Google.com

No longer will Google+ users bypass a fellow circlers birthday. A new feature has been released that shows birthday reminders directly on the most prized real estate that the search giant has — the Google.com home page.

 

Users can choose who to share their birthday data by updating their birthday info and visible to options on the birthday page.

This will be rolling out for English searches only, and will be rolling out gradually over the next few days.

    What’s really odd (and sad) about this is that SO MANY Google+ early adopters are active there because they don’t like the Facebook experience. And here’s Google mimicing one of Facebook’s most popular features.

    I’m glad that Google decided to release this feature for my birthday. My Google.com page has a Google birthday cake Doodle. When you mouse over the logo you see “Happy Birthday Julio!” and if I click the logo, it take me to my Google+ profile. Very cool, thanks again Google for making this doodle just for me! :) Photo: https://plus.google.com/u/0/106914186897370535526/posts/FVDVSUERaCy ~ @SociaJulio
