How to get your Facebook friend’s birthdays in your calendar

If you’re as geeky as I am you are probably sick of Facebook. No offense to the lovely people behind the social networking Mecca. It’s just that I do most of my socializing on Twitter these days. Aside from managing some client’s ad campaigns on Facebook, managing the RSVP for the Geek Breakfasts and checking birthdays, I don’t have very much reason to log in.

Well now I have one less reason. A person named Vegan Bob has designed a Facebook app (one that’s actually useful) that will transfer your birthdays and events calendars right into your iCal or Gmail Calendar called fbCal.

Now when I log into my Gmail Calendar every morning I have a clear view who’s birthday it is. Thanks for the app Vegan Bob. Oh and Happy Birthday Mick.

  • thanx for sharing the news about this app. Very useful. The problem is that now I have a certain obligation of congratulating to many people… :-) It's kind of like my friends theory for not having and answering machine/voice mail (who doesn't nowadays). He says, an answering machine will obligate him to call back all these people…

    Cheers, Hans

  • Thanks. How are you obliged though?I mean, no one can see your
    calendar unless it's public.
