Add Facebook Events to Calendar App in Mac OS X Mavericks [How-to]

A lot of people who use Facebook have their birthdays and anniversaries listed on their profile. Facebook has a built-in calendar that helps you keep track of all your friends’ and family’s birthdays and anniversaries.

Since Facebook is integrated with iOS and OS X, you can also add Facebook events to the Calendar app on your Mac. This makes tracking events easier as you don’t have to login to Facebook just to check out upcoming events.

How to Add Facebook Events to Calendar App in Mac OS X Mavericks

It is relatively easy to add/sync Facebook events to your Calendar on Mac. There are, incidentally, two ways to do this.

Method #1: Add/Sync Facebook Events to Calendar on Mac Via System Preferences

Step #1: Click on the Apple Menu and then on System Preferences.

Step #2: Choose Internet Accounts.

Step #3: Now click Add Account.

Step #4: Select Facebook option from the drop-down. Fill in your Facebook credentials.

Once you are done adding the Facebook account, all events from this account will be synced to your Calendar. Depending on your network and the number of events, it might take a little while before all events are synced.

Both these methods work on OS X Mavericks and later. Older Macs did not feature Facebook integration of this sort so you won’t be able to sync Facebook events to the stock Calendar app on Macs running older versions of OS X.

That’s all for now.
