Facebook has become one of the most-used websites for keeping track of birthdays and planning events, thanks to its massive popularity as a social network. With so many people using Facebook to keep up with friends and family, the site is ideal for managing invites to parties, shows, meals and other social events. Exporting the events and birthday calendar from Facebook to your central Microsoft Outlook calendar is a simple process, thanks to a Facebook application that is designed to provide sync capabilities with a number of calendar providers.

    Navigate to the Facebook Calendar application (fdCal) page.

  3. 3

    Click on "Get your calendars now."
