Remove Birthdays from Facebook Calendar

Hello,

 

I like the Facebook for Blackberry mobile application, except for one thing:

All of your friends' Birthdays are automatically included on the calender.

 

This is very annoying because I have far too many "facebook friends" connected with my account.  Each day that has an event on the calender is bolded when I am browsing, so it makes me look busier than I really am.

 

I do like the ability to get my Facebook events on my calendar though.  There needs to be a way to seperate the two (Facebook Events BlackBerry Calendar application as one option and Facebook Friends' Birthdays as a seperate option).

 

Thanks!

There IS!

 

Open your calendar > Menu key > Select Calendar and if your setting is for ALL calendars, change that to ONLY the calendar you want to view.

 

Bam, the birthdays are gone.

Re: Remove Birthdays from Facebook Calendar

Thanks for the tip, but that's not what I am looking for.

 

1.  I would like to keep the Facebook Events, but just remove the birthdays.

2.  I have four (4) calendars on my BlackBerry and your solution means that I can only view one of them.

 

In case anyone thinks four calendars is weird:  Personal (Gmail), Work (Outlook), Facebook, and the BlackBerry one (this one I could remove).

 

There needs to be an option in the Facebook for BlackBerry Application to remove the Birthdays from the Calendar application.

Re: Remove Birthdays from Facebook Calendar

Sorry, sounded like the perfect solution to me.  :smileyhappy:

 

Eh, there isn't, people put birthdays on the FB calendar, and you gotta see it or not.

 

Ask on FB how you can remove all the birthdays from your FB calendar, if they know how, that is what you need.

There isn't an option for this yet. I just unselected the option to include the calendar in the FB Options. But of course doing this removes everything.   :smileyhappy:

go to settings (the gear icon)- accounts- facebook- birthday reminders, and select `none``

 

Correction: The menus are different than the playbook, which is what i was writing about.  Apologies about confusing the threads.

Re: Remove Birthdays from Facebook Calendar

My apologies. I just realized this thread is for the blackberry phones specifically. The menus are different than the playbook then.

Re: Remove Birthdays from Facebook Calendar

It should be working but it really doesn't. All birthdays are still there even when the "none" option is selected.
