As some of you know, it’s my birthday today, so I’m taking some downtime and spending the weekend getting pampered (hopefully!).

But I just wanted to share this with you first, as it was a little surprise and it made me smile. Nice job, Google!

Have a great and safe weekend, guys, and see you online soon (and thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes on Facebook and Twitter). You’re awesome!

Happy Birthday Danny, enjoy the time with your family!

So cute! I will have to check out my Google Profile on my birthday. BTW, think this is the first time I’ve heard your voice.

@DannyBrown You know I went there! I was wondering where the accent was from. Now I know!

@mattcutts A few days ago? Awesome. Prepare for the Google Social Network.

Dannybrown

@mattcutts Hey there Matt, cheers mate. You guys over at Google continue to make me smile with your little tricks like that (I didn’t even know you could bounce the icons until I made the video, hehe).

Great stuff and shows your fun side :)

Happy birthday to you! That’s yet another neat trick Google has under its sleeve, apparently. I’ll have to look out for it on my birthday.

Actually, Google already told us about it – on Edit your profile > Contact info > Birthday: “So your friends and Google can wish you a happy birthday.”

Hedaru

@DannyBrown Cool dude – You’ve discovered the real meaning about it. And I was only checked it out. Google is absolutely had an amazing idea :)

Dannybrown

@Hedaru Cheers mate – I thought that was just for Google profile connections, the little extras here are pretty fun :)
