Want to surprise your friends and family with a birthday greeting from one of their favorite celebrities? Thanks to Skype you now can! And you don’t even have to spend a fortune doing it. Skype has just announced the launch of happy birthday messages on its Say It With Skype Facebook app.
Instead of boring old text messages on your friends’ walls, you can send them customized video messages with famous celebrities instead (select from the list of: Ash, Body Language, Bowling for Soup, Charlie Simpson, CSS, Imogen Heap, Kill The Young, The Parlotones, and Scarlett Grey). All users have to do is launch the Now Say It With Skype app on Facebook, select the greeting they want, recipient, and personalize it with their own video and images.
In addition to sending free video cards on Facebook, Skype is also giving users the chance to make free group phone calls for seven days. Talk about spreading the holiday cheer! Check out a demonstration video of the card in action:
