I linked my windows phone calender to my Outlook.com account. I then did a synchronize with my phone. This account Outlook account is also linked with Facebook, and because of that all the birthday notifications from Facebook are there in my phone calender. If I add a new friend on Facebook, their birthdays are not sync'd to my calender, even after manually trying to sync. How can I get my Facebook birthday calendar to sync to my phone?
Got a solution after browsing a little:
- every time you add a new friend to Facebook in order to synchronize there birth date to over calendar we need to export events and birth dates to outlook first
- then have to synchronize over phone with outlook account as told by @karancan
note: for exporting events to outlook
- go to event page
- click export button to export events
I have faced a similar situation whereby there is a lag (sometimes a few hours, other time a few days) where some information from Facebook doesn't sync to my phone's
You should be able to force a manual sync by follow these steps:
- Go to
- For the account that isn't up to date, tap and hold it until you see a menu appear where one of the options is
Hope this helps.
One of the work around I have done is to sync your facebook account to live account. And get all the birthday reminders of your friends from hotmail added to your calendar.
