3 Effective Ways Facebookers Can Use Google Calendar

CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Google Calendar is one of the tools I decided to use this year — since I was practicing time management. Other tools I found useful recently are Google Reader, Google Toolbar and Dropbox. Here I have mentioned 3 effective ways Facebook Users (or Facebookers) can use Google Calender.

#1 – Setup Birthday Reminders for Your Facebook Friends

Do you want to track your Facebook friends Birthdays but you rarely visit Facebook since they blocked it in your college or office. Now you can setup birthday reminders for your Facebook friends using Google Calendar and you don’t need to visit Facebook every time. You can import those birthdays into Google Calendar, where you can then setup reminders.

Go to Facebook and click Events on the left menu and go to Birthdays.

Events > Birthdays

Now go to Export Birthdays link, which you can find at the bottom of the page.

Export Birthday

Now you will get a popup kinda dialog box with an URL, just copy that one!

Now go to Google Calendar, under the Other Calendars box use the Add by URL function.

Add By URL - Google Calender

Paste in the URL from Facebook.

Add URL - GC

Click on the small arrow next to the appropriate calendar from the My Calendars (present in left panel) and choose Notifications.

GC - Noti

Note : You can also use the drop down menu to add SMS or email reminders before a set number of days/weeks.

#2 – Add (Embed) Google Calendar To Your Facebook Fan Page

Adding Google Calendar to your Facebook Fan page can help your fans to know about specific and special events easily.

Step 1 : Create an iFrame tab app for your Facebook Fan Page.

You can better refer this tutorial for creating an iFrame tab app.

Step 2 : Get your Google Calendar code

Step 3 :

Here is the sample full embedded code – you can replace the Google Calendar iFrame script in this code with yours.


#3 – Sync Facebook Events

This one is quite similar to the Birthday Reminders for Your Facebook Friends. Go to Events and at the bottom of the page you will find a link – Export Events. Use that and get the URL

Facebook Export Events

Now go to Google Calendar, under the Other Calendars box use the Add by URL function.

Add URL - Events

That’s it. Now your Google calendar will update automatically every time you accept or decline an event in Facebook.
