By now you are probably used to having Facebook remind you of your friends’ birthdays, and you may even have trained yourself to check on Facebook each day to see which of your friends are having birthdays. But what if you want to check to see which of your friends are having a birthday using the Facebook mobile app? Is it even possible? It is, but it’s not obvious how to do it. Here is how to find a list of your friends who are having birthdays today and upcoming using the Facebook mobile app.

First, to be clear what we are talking about, here is the Birthday list you are probably used to – it’s easy to find on your Facebook home page:

But there is no such option on the Facebook mobile app home screen.

  1. The Facebook app is a fucking shitshow. This is all wrong, nowhere does it say Upcoming birthdays…

  2. I like your page! They did change it. If you type in today’s birthdays in the search bar in the app, it’ll bring you to that page. I don’t know why they have to make it so difficult.

  3. I think they’ve changed it again! I keep scrolling and all I get is future events. When I click on the list if birthdays that are occurring today, I get the option of creating an event instead being able to write in their wall. Help!
