Admittedly, I believe that number doesn't combine iOS and Android.
Also, that's Facebook users, not everyone has Facebook. Or likes everything they use.
To shreds you say?
As other people have said the smaller number you’re seeing is Facebook users. Not everyone.
I dig it, but is this possibly a PR move?
Those tweets look exactly like what a PR firm would think of as edgy.
Is the social media person quitting or is the whole network going belly up?
Rebranding to the Paramount Network I believe
If it's not fake, it's a nod to Susan Boyle's album hashtag which was /#susanalbumparty
Of course they did, the real face-palm here is OP.

Just logged into Facebook and was met with this helpful little reminder at the top of my feed. As a programmer, honestly I can only conclude this must have been an intentional decision to include the "0 birthday wishes" reminder as literally any pre-planning stage before building this would include a discussion of what to do about people with low numbers.
I honestly can't understand what is going through their minds at Facebook. It's a stupid idea to be counting birthday greetings anyway, but to intentionally remind people with low numbers during a period of increased suicides (Christmas/New Years) just seems downright evil.
Personally I don't have an issue with the number, I don't have my birthday listed on Facebook because I don't want cold no-effort birthday greetings from people I haven't spoken with since high school and would rather, you know, do my birthday celebrating face to face. But I know there's going to be a lot of people out there who are going to be hurting after seeing a message like this pop up in their feeds. Frankly I think I'm done with Facebook, this feels like the last straw with their social engineering bulshit, and my feed seems to be mostly spam these days anyway.
Haha I came to Reddit looking for this! 0 birthday wishes – and I try very hard to keep it that way! Thank you very much.
I laughed my ass off from this this morning
I hid my birthday from public when I was a teenager
Got the same thing a few minutes ago... Couldn't help a dad little laugh.
I'm surprised their competitors don't set a couple computers sending requests all day, to permalock the servers in that state
I don't even see how building something like this would be cheaper than building an auto scale thing. That probably means a marketing effort to make it seem like it's going to be amazing deals?
I'd be surprised if no one was doing it purposely
edit: did a good double-take at my inbox there edit 2: get off my lawn you posers
Because that's a denial of service attack. And illegal.
Pretty sure this is a fake. The font isn't the same as the font I've seen on actual packets. The biggest stand out is the serifs on the 'I' in this photo and lack there of on other photos of the packets. See here
i love it when i go to have big man sexy sex with my loved one and i fucking spew diablo sauce out of my asshole like pompeii's volcano
Does this mean something different than the obvious? I kind of love it if not.

They knew what they were doing.
Step 1: make a controversial slogan
Step 2: be featured on media for said slogan
Step 3: profit?
They knew they were dong.

Cross posted! Thanks!
No, Activision. I do not think any of us miss the 5 years we were under the control of Nazi-Germany.
Is that really the exact translation? I am sorry for questioning your language skills, just cannot believe someone can be dumb enough to create an ad like this.
It is (use Google Translate from Norwegian to English if you are still not convinced). I suspect that it could be a bad translation from Activision's side, ads like this tend to be very poorly translated from English.
It’s Norwegian, but you’re close.
I disagree, I think it is facepalm. I don't see race baiting I see a marketing team that could've worked on their phrasing a bit better.
"The power of a professional whitening" problem solved.
I think there's something here, even if it's subtle. It reminds me of the old Dove ads that talked about creaming or whitening your skin at a time when racial tension was high.
