All these events I haven't responded to / don't want to attend are driving me crazy! I do like having my friend's birthdays in my calendar though. I would like to know if it is possible to remove Facebook events and only show birthdays either on my S Planner or my Google Calendar. I am on a Samsung Galaxy Note II.

  • Click the Gears icon next to Today on the top left, then click Export

  • Right click export your friend's birthdays and select Copy Link Address

enter image description here

enter image description here

  • Paste the URL Address you copied from Facebook in step (3)
  • Click Add calendar enter image description here

Your Friend's birthdays now show up on your Google Calendar on the web. You can repeat the same process if you wish to add the upcoming events, just select upcoming events in step 3.

Wait a bit for the changes to sync to your phone (you should have calendar sync enabled on the same Google account on your phone).

Now on your Android phone/tablet, open the Calendar then select Menu -> Settings -> {Your Google Account}. Look for Friends' Birthdays and select it.

PRIVACY WARNING: Make sure to leave the Make the calendar publicly accessible? checkbox unselected.

NOTE: The terminology in step 3 differs between browsers. Chrome shows it as Copy URL Address, Firefox shows it as Copy Link Location, other browsers may differ a bit, but they all have the same meaning.

NOTE: On your Android Phone I'm assuming you are using the Google Calendar app. S-planner, or other calendar apps may handle this differently.

If you only want to see events you have answered "Attending" or "Maybe attending" then you could try "Freedom", a service that I developed.
