Facebook Events to Google Calendar

Hey, you can add your Facebook Events onto your Google Calendar. Here you are the steps for doing so.
1. Click on the "Events" link found in the left menu of your Facebook account.

2. On the top of the page you'll find a link called "Export Events". Click on it, and copy the URL that appears in the pop-up window.

3. Go to Google Calendar, and press on the "Add" button, found in the "Manage Calendars" box there. Then select "Add by URL".

4. Enter the URL you've just got from Facebook there, and click on the "Add" button.

5. Voila, here you go.

  3. Try this script: Facebook to Google Calendar. It just need Greasemonkey installed on your Firefox browser.

  5. II can't get it to display the full event details, it just shows the 'busy' information as though it was someone else's shared google calendar...

  9. It mostly worked, with a couple of nice features: for instance events show up with a link to the facebook event page. However, several of the events only showed up as 'busy' (like tamlyn said) and those events don't have the link to the facebook page, and they don't have the correct ending times.

  14. Same problem with timezones, looks like google treats facebook events as GMT when it imports. So for me here in Boston, everything is 5 hours off.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Is there a way to fix the problem with time zones? When imported or updated from faecbook, all of the times are listed as GMT, I live in the USA so this is not so helpful.

  21. I've been running the Google calendar with Facebook events for over 6 months with out any problems, but for some reason the calender won't update with the latest events now, also starting to show events I haven't attended???

    Anybody had a similar problem?

  22. same problem here... won't update with new events..

  23. found this on another forum

  24. There doesn't seem to be a way to remove a single event once it's brought into your google calendar from FB! I've tried removing it from FB, but it doesn't sync with Google. You have to remove the entire Facebook calendar.

    fail!

    I won't be using this, waiting for something that just works right.

  25. @Anonymous Google calendar will Evenually update, sometimes changes take time to make it over to Google.

  26. About the "busy" event problem, read my blog post here (http://blog.universejdj.com/2010/01/04/facebook-google-calendar-event-calendar-integration/). You can host this yourself securely on a PHP enabled web-server, or trust your private event feed details with the other web service above.

  27. with this new facebook interface, i can't find the "Export Events" link. any help?

    ReplyDelete
  28. yeah im having the same problem

    ReplyDelete
  29. Looks like they removed the link to the calendar feed.... just offering individual events in the .ical format. I'm glad I'd found my events feed address before the redesign

    ReplyDelete
  30. Change your google calendars time zone to GMT. Import the facebook stuff. Then change it back.

    ReplyDelete
  31. does the ical link exist anywhere in the current FB?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Facebook removed it, in order to keep you looking at Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I still see it, it's now at the very BOTTOM of the Events page (next to the link for Events Help).
