I was invited to a 40th birthday via Facebook events (Facebook calendar). Seeing I use Hotmail.com/Outlook.com for all my email, calendar and task needs. I looked everywhere how to make my Facebook events show up in my hotmail /outlook and therefore Android phone or iPhone calendars for this even and sync up for all future events automatically – I couldn’t really find anything useful however simple it turned out to be.
How do I sync up my Facebook events with my Microsoft (Windows/Hotmail.com/Outlook.com/Live.com) calendar?
- Go to your Facebook profile first and then click on ‘more’ and then ‘events’
- Now click on one of your ‘upcoming events’
- Top right hand corner click on gear icon and then ‘export event’ and copy the link from ‘Subscribe to all upcoming events on your calendar:’ section
- Now go into your hotmail, live or outlook.com calendar and click on ‘import’ and then in the next screen ‘subscribe’ menu on the left. Paste your calendar link in ‘calendar URL’ field and also give your calendar a name. Link will look something like webcal://www.facebook.com/ical/u.php?uid=760387523&key=AQBYBsssssxxxxxxx_
It worked for me as I can now see all my facebook events in my Hotmail calendar which I also use on my Android phone (it works with iPhone as well) – happy days for me, I hope it works for you too!
