    Wink Importing birthdays from facebook to your Android Phone

    I found my calendar was lacking birthdays so I recently imported all(some) of my facebook contacts' birthdays to my phone and I'd though I'd share the method i used here


    1. Go to this facebook application called Birthday Exporter
    2. Press 'Download iCal file' and save it somewhere you can find it again.
    3. Now go to Google Calendar
    4. Under the tab 'My Calendars'(to the left), press 'Create' and create a new calendar called Facebook Birthdays (or whatever you wish)
    5. Now click Settings (upper right corner) > Calendars (under the title) > Import Calendar.
    6. Now import the ics file from step two to the 'Facebook Birthdays' calendar, which imports all the birthdays as all-day events repeating each year.
    7. Now you're free to either:


    • Keep this calendar as an 'external' calendar which will show up on your phone calendar in a different color if you acces the MENU > More > My Calendars
    • Select which birthdays you'd like to import into your personal calendar by clicking on them in the calendar and import to personal calendar, remembering to select yearly repeats (I chose this way as i only chose to keep about 20% of the birthdays it imported in my own personal calendar)


    Hope you liked my guide

    Iv tried to import myself, that being the first app i landed on,

    what the app does is make a 1KB file that is corrupt, it cannot be imported or even opened.

    Then found Fdcal!

    Thanks for taking the time!

    fdcal has worked for me. I imported it into my google calendar first, and it made a new label.
