How does Facebook know my birthday?
When you sign up for Facebook you are asked to input your date of birth to prove that you are over the age limit for the app. Facebook uses this information and publishes it on our profile as your birthday. Of course, like everything on your Facebook profile you can always opt to hide it away.
Facebook sends out a notification every day letting you know whose birthday it is that day. This little reminder is a great way to stay updated with your friends’ birthdays!
How to find birthdays on the Facebook app
Well, the Facebook app is now in a new form, and the old way of searching through Birthday is no longer available. Previously you could find a ‘Birthdays’ tab under Events, however, that is no longer the case.
It’s really quite easy to find birthdays now. All you have to do is launch the Facebook app and search from the word ‘Birthday’.
Tap on the search button in the top right corner of the app, and type ‘Birthday’ in the search box.
You should see a list of birthdays that are today.
How to view upcoming birthdays of your friends on Facebook?
So you know whose birthday is today. But what about tomorrow? Next week? Luckily, Facebook lets you view all your friend’s birthdays in order of when they are. You can also view past birthdays up to three days prior, in case you wanted to feel bad about not wishing your bestie.
Once you are in the ‘Birthdays’ function of Facebook, tap ‘See all’. This will present you with a list of all your friends’ birthdays in the coming weeks and months.
