Facebook just seriously upped your Happy Birthday game. While everyone else is thinking of witty one-liners or crafting embarrassing photo collages for that special birthday someone, now iOS users can take things a step further by posting a 15-second video using “Birthday Video Cam.”

This could be a good way to make things a little more personal when it comes to birthdays on Facebook. While social media is good way to keep track of friends’ birthdays, they just as easily get lost in the clutter of Facebook activity, and simply writing “Happy Birthday” can feel a little cold.

Instead, the website has taken a leaf out of Snapchat’s book, providing birthday-themed filters to go along with your birthday messages.

Then, leave your 15-second message complete with that little extra pizzaz.

As of now, the feature is only available for Facebook iOS users, but Bideness Etc. reports that the feature will soon be available on Android.
