Escaping The Boring “Happy Birthday” Pattern!

With over 500 friends on Facebook, my school batch on WhatsApp & Fb group; My IIT batch on WhatsApp and other active social contacts, each day I am witness to countless”Happy Birthday” messages posted on Facebook, WhatsApp and other digital forums. Tens and sometimes hundreds of folks post “Congratulations” when someone announces an accomplishment or special day.

Surely, life would be much better for the sender and the recipient if we could post customized, personalized, graphically rich messages instead of the boring, monotonous and repetitive plain vanilla text messages. Surely one is not simply posting out of habit or peer pressure but out of love and concern and engagement with the party, no?

But how does one do this without taking a great deal of time and effort? Some folks do spend the time to scout for interesting cakes or pictures and their messages always seems to stand out and be appreciated. Wont it be great if we could enable everyone to create personalized visual message cards/ greeting cards that could be posted quickly ? Wont it be great if we could bring curious, fun, playful images together with all the images a user has stored on the internet services and let them use these images in their cards?

Here is a small attempt at moving in this direction. ThotofU was launched last year as a “Birthday” greeting app but we realized that it has a wider horizontal use-case, make custom greeting cards for any occasion.

So take out the boredom from your “Happy Birthday” and/or “Congratulations” messages and just use ThotOfU to design beautiful cards that can be shared via Facebook, WhatsApp or even email.Try it and see how other friends “like” your creative expressions.
