Facebook allows you to queue New Year's post, will show it to your friends in their timezone

If you're one of those people that has to post on Facebook exactly at midnight on January 1, 2013, Facebook will make your life just a bit easier. They have created an automatic delivery program that allows you to preset your New Year's greeting. The preset greeting will then be shown to your friends at midnight in their timezone.


You can set up midnight delivery on Facebook's website. The program offers up suggestions of people to send the greeting to, though the suggestions are completely random, according to Facebook. "If people are seeing folks that they haven't been in contact with for a while, all the more reason to send them a message," the spokesperson said.

Instead of typing away madly on your smartphone, you can instead be getting your first kiss of 2013. Let us know what you think of the service in the comments.
