Let Them Eat Cake: Facebook Rolls Out New Birthdays Icon

Facebook changed the icon that appears next to friends’ birthdays on users’ homepages into one resembling a birthday cake.

The social network is likely attempting to place more emphasis on birthdays due to its ongoing launch of Gifts, although the change is admittedly a minor one.

Readers: Did you notice the new birthday cake icon?

Thank you to Ticular Principal Ulrike Ruppelt for the tip.
