Android 101: How to sync Facebook Events with Google Calendar

34

Facebook does a really good job reminding us when our upcoming Events are or when our friends and families have their birthdays. It’s gotten to the point now where I’ve given up trying to memorize birthdays and just look to Facebook. The problem I run into is that I don’t spend all my time on Facebook, so if there was an easy way for me to see the reminders on a service that I do, such as Google Calendar, it would be a lot more valuable. Enter: syncing your Facebook Events with your Google Calendar. It is an easy process that will take ten minutes tops. Here is the step by step process:

First: Go to your Facebook account and click Events in the left pane. Scroll all the way to the bottom and you'll see three links: Past Events, Birthdays and Export.

Next: I'm going to show Birthdays only, but if you want all events, just click Export and skip this step. Click Birthdays. Scroll all the way to the bottom again and click Export Birthdays. A link will pop up.

Finally Copy the link and go into your Google Calendar. In Other Calendars in the bottom left, select Add, then Add by URL. Paste the link you copied into the box.

Voila! You're all set. The Calendar will appear in your Other Calendars as Friends' Birthdays. If you are on your Android device and go into your Calendar application -> Settings -> Calendars, it should be listed. If the box is ticked, then that means it's syncing to your Android device. Now you won't have to worry about visiting Facebook when you're worried about missing someone's birthday you may have forgotten.

One of my favorite things about Android is that there are tons of options for keyboards, lots of different styles, skins and colors that can be selected, and changing them on the go is extremely easy.
