Just wondered if anyone had had a notification from facebook re: birthdays that was wrong.
I got a notification in my email inbox today from Facebook telling me that two of my friends had birthdays today, when in fact that dates are 22nd and 23rd of February (a week away). I just checked my system date and it is correct.

Is this just a facebook error? Usually they are pretty accurate.

Well, I just checked the about info for the individuals I was talking about and it doesn't square with the email alert I got. Oh well. I guess I just chalk it up to an error. Still weird though.

Check the wording of the email; I think it's deliberately sent a few days in advance to give you time to prepare.
