Many people find it difficult remembering birthdays. Facebook made it easy for us by reminding us about important birthdays. However people don’t login to Facebook each and every day.
A simple solution is to sync your Facebook birthdays with the Google Calendar. Although Facebook doesn’t like Google to take away their users,you can also sync Facebook events and birthdays to Google Calendar. If you have an Android, you can easily set a reminder on the Google Calender or make a widget for the same.
The tutorial is given below:
- On your Facebook homepage, click “Events” at the left, hit the drop-down menu at the right, and select “Birthdays“.
- On the “Birthdays” page, hit the drop-down menu at the right, and select “Export Birthdays“, then you can copy the birthdays export URL and add it into your Google Calendar just as how you sync Facebook events.
- Log in to your Google Calendar, click the drop-down menu next to the “Other Calendars” option, and then select “Add by URL“.
- On the pop-up window, paste the event export URL you copied in step 2, and click the “Add Calendar” button. Some of your friends maybe don’t like to share their birthdays to anyone else, so keep the “Make the calendar publicly accessible” button unchecked.
Now you can go to Calender app on your Android and turn on the notifications if you want. Or simply you can create a widget on your homescreen where you will be able to see the upcoming birthdays.
