Are you a Facebook user who also uses Microsoft Outlook? Have you ever wished that you could have your Outlook calendar update from your Facebook events and birthday lists? Now, you can! With fbCal, you'll be able to remember you Facebook friends' birthdays and all the events you've been invited to. In under a minute, you'll have a Facebook calendar you can subscribe to in Outlook or a downloadable copy you can import into Outlook. fbCal will actually generate two different types of calendars - one for birthdays and one for events - and each is available as a subscription or a download. Subscription calendars get updated whenever you refresh your calendar after there was a change in your Facebook friends or events. Download calendars are only accurate up to when you last downloaded the calendar. All the calendars made by fbCal are iCalendar (.ics) format.
To Subscribe to an fbCal Facebook Calendar in Outlook:
1. Click the link for the Internet Calendar Subscription.
2. You might be prompted to acknowledge that you are opening a hyperlink. You should click Yes only if you know and trust the validity of the linked calendar.
3. At the prompt, Add this Internet Calendar to Outlook and subscribe to updates, click Yes.
