I tend to forget birthdays and depend on a list or some sort of recuring appointment in my Google Calendar, to serve as a reminder. In turn the scheduled event will send an sms reminder to my mobile phone.
I found a way to add birthdays from the Facebook Birthday Calendar application, to your Google Calendar.
Step by step instructions:
(Update* March 2010 :please note there is an update to the process to follow – I explained it in the comments below)
Chose your preferred Exporting format (iCal or .csv)
Now you need to log in to your Google Calendar.
You now need to import your .csv file from the desktop and add it to your newly created calendar Birthdays.
1. Browse for your .csv file,
2. Select your Calendar from the drop down menu, then
The importing process may take a few minutes, depending on your .csv file size.
Notes and Tips:
- If in future, your friendship with “Person” ends on Facebook, note that “Person“‘s Birthday, will still appear in your Google calendar. You will have to manually remove the event from your calendar.
- Try adding birthday events manually to your new Birthdays Google Calendar – that way you can keep updating just one calendar instead of creating multiple Birthday Calendars.
