What’s the first thing you do every day when you login on Facebook? I personally check birthday notifications on the top right part of my screen and write wishes to my online friends. But it look like Facebook wants to take this a step further.

According to Social Times, Facebook has been experimenting with a new way to send wishes to your friends. Up until now, users could write directly on their friends’ walls. However, it looks like you can now also record a short video, and post it directly onto the wall of your lucky friend.
It’s no secret that Facebook wants to boost its video functionality. Apart from awarding video content with a little bit of extra organic reach, the social platform has also recently taken on YouTube with the launch of 360-degree video support. Moreover, Facebook has just introduced a dedicated video feed which aims at helping users find and organise videos from friends, Pages, or trending topics.
So why is this a big deal? With this small update, Facebook wants to assert its position in dominating content creation on social media networks. From publishers, to end users, Facebook wants to be the hub where everyone goes if they want to stay up-to-date, or just enjoy being creative.
