Need to check when your friend’s birthday is? Or maybe you just want to see a calendar of upcoming birthdays? Luckily, Facebook makes it easy to view all your friends’ birthdays on a single page. We’ll show you how.
With the methods below, you can find the birthdays of the people you are friends with on Facebook. You’ll see today’s birthdays, recent birthdays, upcoming birthdays, and birthdays arranged by months.
Unfortunately, if someone has hidden their birthday on Facebook, you will not find their birthday details.
Find Friends’ Birthdays on the Facebook Website
On a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use the Facebook site to view your friend’s birthdays.
Start by opening a web browser on your computer and accessing the Facebook site. Log in to your account if you aren’t already.
On the Facebook site, from the sidebar on the left, select “Events.”
Note: If you don’t see the “Events” option, click “See More” in the same sidebar to view that option.
On the “Events” page that opens, from the sidebar on the left, select “Birthdays.”
On the right pane, you will find all your friends’ birthdays. To wish a friend on their birthday from this page, click the “Write on His/Her Timeline” box, type your message, and press Enter.
And that’s how you quickly find out when you’re going to your next birthday party. You can set up Facebook birthday reminders in Google Calendar, if you’d like to be notified that way.
Find Friends’ Birthdays in the Facebook Mobile App
In the Facebook app for iPhone, iPad, and Android, you don’t have an option to view a list of all birthdays. But, there’s a workaround you can use to find the birthday calendar.
To do so, first, open the Facebook app on your phone. In the app, at the top-right corner, tap the “Search” option (a magnifying glass icon.)
On the search page, tap the “Search” field at the top and type “Birthdays”. Then, from the search results, select “Birthdays.”
You are now on the “Birthdays” screen. Here, you will see the birthdays of all your Facebook friends.
And that’s all there is to it.
Would you prefer manually checking people’s birthdays and not get any birthday notifications from Facebook? There’s a way to make that happen.
