Facebook birthdays not showing up/ correctly

Hi everyone, I'm hoping I've just missed something here but Facebook birthdays on the calendar app are either not showing at all or have been placed on the wrong day.

E.g 1, I have two birthdays on 16 Oct but they are showing on 17 Oct. (I am in Sydney, Australia so Facebook will show 16 Oct but because of the time difference to the US, I see it in my FB feed the next day).

E.g 2, I had two birthdays on 14 Oct that did not show in my calendar at all.

E.g 3, Facebook birthdays do not show in my agenda widget.

E.g 4, Facebook events are not shown in the calendar at all.

I have just moved to Sony from A Samsung phone, whose standard calendar has all these features, which are incredibly convenient! Is it an issue with the Xperia with Facebook account?

P.s. I have tried using Google calendar and this did not fix the problem..

Please help?!

Thanks

That seems to be more of a facebook issue than Sony or Google's calendar, my suggestion, try another calendar and check again

Thanks uliwooly; I've tried Go Calendar, Calendar Widget, DigiCal and Business Calendar.. The last two I used with my Samsung and the events were shown.. My gut feel is still the Facebook with Sony account.

Does this work properly for you though? Thanks

Re: Facebook birthdays not showing up/ correctly

I don't use Xperia w/ facebook nor Xperia w/ twitter just regular FB and Twitter, but as for the calendar not showing the proper facebook dates, I still think it has to do with facebook

Re: Facebook birthdays not showing up/ correctly

With the Z1 compact, I don't think it is possible to just have normal FB account, in that you can't select to show FB events in the calendar.. Am I missing something though?

I just checked FB and the Xperia app link settings - there is nothing there that helps.
