Tuesday Tech Tip: Sync Facebook’s calendar with Google Calendar

Facebook to Google CalendarThis week’s tip comes from Kim Komando:

If you’ve signed up for an event on Facebook, or just want to keep track of everyone’s birthdays, syncing your Facebook calendar to your Google Calendar is easier than you’d think.

First, log in to Facebook and click on the “Events” link in the left column. At the bottom of the right column, you’ll see links for Upcoming Events and Birthdays. Right-click on the link you want and choose Copy Link Location.

Then open your Google Calendar. In the left column, find Other Calendars. Click the down arrow in the Other Calendars page, and then click “add by URL.” Paste the link that you copied from Facebook, and click Add Calendar.

After a few seconds a new calendar option will appear. It will update automatically, however Google says that it might take a few hours sometimes.
