6. Ask a mutual friend
Do you have any mutual friends? If yes, don’t be afraid to reach out to them and ask if they happen to know the person’s day of birth. Just make sure that mutual contact is outspoken and not someone who’s trying to pull a prank on you, and you may get the exact information you need. Even if they can’t name it off the top of their head, they could offer you some clues or think it out for you.
If you want to remain as low-key as possible, tell that person to keep it a secret for you.
7. Use the power of social media
Social media is one of the great places where you can find birthdates of a person, since nowadays most of us have been using more than one social media and most people wouldn’t mind sharing birthdays on social media platforms. Before diving in, you can think about which platform he or she uses the most and start your digging there. Usually, all you have to do is scroll through their profiles and posts – the steps are more of the same and here I take Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Linkedin as examples.
On Facebook, there are three ways you can find out someone’s birthdate: simply log into your account, then pull up their profile, and go to
- About page > Contact and Basic Info > Birthday to see if they have filled in their birthday information.
- Even > Birthdays and see if the person’s birthday is showing up as upcoming.
- Facebook timeline, then scan the timeline to see if you can find a group of birthday celebration posts made over the past years.
On Instagram, there is no specific section where you can go and check someone’s personal information. But you can still do your digging on the platform. To do so, simply log into your account, use the search function to find out their Instagram profile, then check out their bio, scour over their previous posts (especially tagged posts if you both follow each other), stories, the posts of the friends who they have been close with, or, you can even try with hashtags such as #birthday to see if you can get hold of the information or any clues that may lead you to it.
Snapchat displays a birthday cake emoji next to users’ names on their special days. This makes it a very good opportunity to figure out someone’s birthday if they know that big day is on the horizon. Otherwise, you may need to hop on and check every day, which takes a bit of patience and legwork.
Linkedin is a social network for professionals and businesses. If the person whose birthday you’d like to know has a Linkedin profile, you can visit their profile, and then scroll through their bio and posts to see if any birthday posts come up. Beware, though, the person will be notified of your visit – so if you do want to try your luck there, get yourself a plausible explanation of why you showed up there.
That’s it – seven methods to help you investigate your friend’s birthday without asking them directly. Hopefully, it has helped. If you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions, please let me know in the comments. Thanks.
