BigDates Solutions today announced the launch of a powerful Facebook application called Birthday Calendar. In just one month since its official launch, over 1.9 million Facebook users from more than 100 countries have added the application, making Birthday Calendar a top 100 application in a field of over 10,000 applications.
Birthday Calendar leverages an intuitive calendar view to help Facebook users manage and remember birthdays, holidays and other important dates in their lives. Advance notice alerts are sent via Facebook users’ News Feeds, email or cell phone. The service also helps users take action on these special occasions with popular Facebook communication features or helpful suggestions for ecards, greeting cards, gift cards and gifts. With access to over 20,000 paper greeting cards, 2,000 ecards, and 20 gift cards, users of Birthday Calendar should have no problem expressing their sentiments on special occasions.
With more than 58 million active users, Facebook is the sixth-most trafficked website in the United States, and most of these users would appreciate a useful and powerful service like Birthday Calendar. According to Nasser Gaemi, CEO of BigDates Solutions, “Outside of Facebook, it can take hours to collect all the dates needed to setup a useful reminder service. With Birthday Calendar built on the Facebook Platform, it happens instantaneously with just a few clicks. Gaemi continues, “Our ability to leverage the Facebook social graph has created the most exciting distribution opportunity in our company’s eight year history. We’ve never seen this kind of viral growth.”
BigDates Solutions has a long history in creating web-based services designed to help people with special occasions. In addition to its flagship sites, www.GreetingCardUniverse.com, www.BigDates.com and www.Birthday-Reminders.com, the company powers the gift reminder and ecard services at major retailers like Barnes and Noble (NYSE:BKS), 1800Flowers.com (NASDAQ:FLWS), Overstock.com (NASDAQ:OSTK), and others.
