How to export Facebook Calendar to Google Calendar 2019 is an article to help you export all your Facebook Events and Friends’ Birthdays to your Google Calendar.

It is quite embarrassing when you have to be notified by Facebook to remind you of your very own friends’ birthday. At times, Facebook notifications do come late within the day. 

But, if you have all your Facebook’s friends’ birthdays on your calendar, you will not have to wait for Facebook’s notification neither log in to Facebook.

You can be the first to wish your friends on their special day or plan a nice birthday party for them when you have it on your calendar.

Below is a simple step by step way to export Facebook Calendar to Google Calendar and it can be used across multiple calendar formats, but we will focus on only Google Calendar.
 
NB: If you do not have the Google Calendar app preinstalled, go to Play Store (Android) and App Store (Apple) to download and install it.


You will have to start the steps on your computer and then continue setup on your phone.

STEP 1
Log into your Facebook Account and click on the “Events tab”

Do NOT check the box (Make the calendar publicly accessible)

STEP 8
Click on “Add Calendar”.
A quick notification below the webpage will prompt you that “Calendar added” (It disappears quickly, so be alert).

STEP 9
You will notice on the General settings menu at the bottom that “Friends’ birthdays” has been added to other calendars.
Click on the “back arrow” on the browser menu bar (located at the top left corner).

Now all your Facebook Friends’ birthdays have been added to your calendar and will automatically syncronise if you add new friends on Facebook.

Next step is to go to Google Calendar app on your phone. 
NB: If you do not have the Google Calendar app preinstalled, go to Play Store (Android) and App Store (Apple) to download and install it.
After installation, make sure you log in with your Gmail address. 
Follow the steps below to complete the setup on your phone.

STEP 11
Open the Google Calendar app on your phone.
Tap on the “three lines” at the top left corner to open the menu.

STEP 12
Scroll down the menu and tap on “Settings”.

STEP 13
Select “Show more” under your email.

STEP 14
Tap on “Friends’ Birthdays”.

STEP 15
On Friends’ Birthday settings, the Sync button is turned off, so tap on the button to turn it on.

You can change the Name of the calendar to one that suits you. (e.g. Facebook Birthdays)
Likewise, you can change the colour but since Facebook’s main colour is blue, I will leave it to cobalt.

15

FINALLY
Go back to your calendar homepage.
You have successfully added and auto-synced your Facebook Friends’ birthdays to your Google Calendar. It takes less than five minutes to complete the sync.

Final


Note that these steps apply to Facebook Events as well.
Right-click on “Upcoming Events” and “Copy the link”.
(Follow STEP 3 to add your Facebook Events to your Google Calendar).

Medaase!!!
