NOTE – From the Blog BufferSocial.com, a great tip to help you keep all of your Facebook events synced with your daily life.
If you’re looking for a way to get all of your events in one place, this is it. Syncing your Facebook Calendar will help you stay in sync with all of the events from your favorite groups. And when you use the Google Calendar app on your smartphone, you’ll have all of your appointments right at your fingertips.
How to sync your Facebook Calendar with Google Calendar
I find this one is extremely helpful. My calendar is like my personal assistant, and I use it to plan and organize both my work and social schedules.
If you use both Facebook events and Google Calendar, combining the two is amazingly useful and pretty simple. Here’s how to do it:
Head over to Events on Facebook, and click on one of your ‘Upcoming events.’ Once you’re on the event page, click on the ‘Options’ button and select ‘Export Event’ from the dropdown, as shown below:
Next you’ll see the below lightbox popup. Here you’ll want to copy the URL under ‘Subscribe to all upcoming events on your calendar.’
Once you’ve copied the URL, open up Google Calendar and on the left-hand side you’ll see an option called ‘Other Calendars.’ Click on the drop down next to ‘Other Calendars’ and choose “Add by URL” as shown below.
Once the lightbox opens up, insert the URL you copied from Facebook and your Facebook events will now sync with Google Calendar.
