You mean I can add ALL my FaceBook friends birthdays to my calender? Why didn’t somebody tell me this sooner?!?!?!?!?

Ok, all my FaceBook guru’s out there, why didn’t you ever tell me this?? I didn’t know I could ADD all my friends birthdays to my calender (in my case to iCal but it works with your PC calender too)
I don’t know about you, (well yes I do, as most everyone else I know is better than me at this) but I’m not as good at logging into FaceBook as I should be.
At least not if I want to keep up with what’s going on in my friends lives. Here’s why; this happened to me just the past week. I missed a good friends birthday DRATS!!! Her name is AMY SHAIR. If you haven't met this delightful lady please head over and introduce yourself... (and convey my sincere apologies for missing her birthday too please)!
So I decided I needed to do something to fix this problem. Now I could make a pledge to ‘log into’ my account everyday OR I could manually add all my friends birthdays to my calender. Neither of those two options seemed really feasible to me, as #1 knowing me, I’d be sure to miss a few days and #2- adding them manually would take a decade (maybe not a decade as I don’t have a zillion friends on FB but it would take a long time...)
So that’s where this cool feature on FaceBook comes in... They already have a way to add these dates (and other events too) to your iCal or Outlook Calendar!!
Here’s how it works;
Head to your events page on the left side of your page
once there scroll to the bottom of the page and click on what you want to export
choose from past events, birthdays, or export... (let's use birthdays).
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on 'export birthdays'
Click on the link that pops up...
Choose the app you want to import to... Done.
That's all there is to it... Pretty cool right!?!
