LinkedIn Birthdays – “Hey Connection, happy birthday… Sorry it’s 3 months late…”

LinkedIn continually proves that it’s not the most useful social network. This morning I received a message to wish one of my connections (only LinkedIn refers to friends and colleagues as connections).

I followed the link to wish my “connections” happy birthday. This is the first generic screen I got.

I hit the button “See who’s celebrating”

Happy Birthday LinkedIn

Why would I want to wish anyone a happy birthday from 3 or 2 months ago?
