Message Guy Tip: When you should pick short birthday wishes
Short birthday wishes, when written well, can be just what you need to make your loved ones feel special on their birthday, but they should only be used in special circumstances (in my opinion).
Personally, I prefer short birthday wishes when I send my birthday greetings to family, friends, lovers and colleagues via text, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest or LinkedIn — when brevity is essential.
You really shouldn't opt for short birthday messages when you can use a greeting card or eCard to send your birthday wishes, since you will have more room for a long birthday greeting, a much better way to fully express how you feel about the birthday boy or girl.
