facebook birthdays: where did they go

iOS and iPadOS

Hey all!
First off, I'd like to wish you all a happy new year! I hope you all have a wonderful 2020!

I have a question about Facebook birthdays. I went to find them in the events section, & I cannot find them. I've looked everywhere I could think to look, & still can't find them. Usually I get them through notifications, but I decided to take care of them before I went to bed. Can you please tell me where they are (if they're even still there)? Thanks in advance!

I am also having this issue. Can you tell me how to get them through notifications? I haven't had any luck with that.

Also, a very Happy New Year to you as well.

Hi @sockhopsinger!
Unfortunately, you just have to wait it out. Mine usually appear in the morning. Some family members say they don't get them until 11 @ night! Which kind of defeats the purpose in my opinion. I can only say check your Fb. notifications tab periodically throughtt the day when you can. Thank you! At least now I know that I'm not the only one, & that I'm not crazy! Last night, I seriously thought it was just me not looking in the right place. Hope my tip about getting notifications for birthdays helps! Because I'm sorry to say, it's a waiting game. Hope Fb. pushes out an update soon, because they really need to!

I still find them in the notifications tab. for me it comes around at 8 am when ever its someone's birthday. I do agree that they need to push an update. I'm tired of it crashing constantly.

That is interesting because I've never had notifications appear in my birthday tabs. I am assuming you are talking about on the iPhone, and not on the Facebook web page?

I'm talking about the Fb. app on iphone/ipad.
