Today, Facebook is the top source to get updates about birthdays of your favorite friends. Facebook does give you notification when there are birthdays of your friends. But you may want to see those birthdays in Google calendar too! Hopefully Facebook does offer everyone to export birthdays and import it anywhere like Apple iCal, Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar including auto synchronization. It’s very helpful as Google calendar is used by popular Android OS and you see birthdays directly on you android phone! You can export other Facebook events too.
