  3. Facebook’s UX is so good when it comes to the details. 
Wish one friend happy birthday and as soon as you hit Enter, the cursor jumps to the next friend’s birthday to leave them a message as well.
Of course all relationships are not made equal, but Facebook makes it so quick and easy to leave a message that even if you weren’t planning on it, you lose nothing by having them set it up for you, just in case. 
Serious optimization.
