  2. From the left sidebar, find and click on “Events.” Then, select the “Birthdays” option.

The screenshot above clearly shows that Facebook had a feature to view all today’s, recent, and upcoming birthdays on one page.

But there have been some changes.

It seems that not all users see the “Today’s Birthdays” section in the same way on Facebook now.

However, you can still see today’s birthdays by enabling Birthday notifications on Facebook.

By default, Facebook sends notifications about today’s birthdays, but if you’re not receiving them, you can ensure that the notification settings are properly enabled.

To do this, you can go to Settings & Privacy > Settings, then click on “Notifications”. From there, select “Birthdays” and toggle the switch next to “Allow Notifications on Facebook”.

How to Find Birthdays on Facebook App

With the latest updates to Facebook’s mobile app, there is no longer a dedicated tab to view all your friends’ upcoming birthdays at once.

However, there is still a way to access the list of upcoming birthdays on the Facebook app.

This option is available for both iPhone and Android users.

To view upcoming birthdays on Facebook, follow these steps in your app:

  1. Simply open the Facebook app.
  2. Tap on the “Search icon” in the top right corner.
  3. Type and search for “Upcoming birthdays”.
  4. You’ll see a summary of a few birthdays. If you want to see more details, just tap on “See All” for the full birthday list.
  5. Enjoy keeping track of your friends’ special days!

If accessing Facebook birthdays through the method mentioned above doesn’t work for you, simply visit from your mobile web browser.

If that feels too much, don’t worry – Facebook sends you daily birthday notifications to remind you of who’s celebrating their birthdays.

But if you are not receiving such notifications, simply open your Facebook app and navigate to Settings & Privacy > Settings. From there, click on “Notifications” and customize the types of notifications you want to receive on Facebook.

Wish Your Facebook Friends a Happy Birthday

To put it simply, if you want to check out all the upcoming birthdays, just head over to on your computer’s web browser. If you’re using the Facebook app, simply type in “Upcoming birthdays” in the search bar.

And if none of those options work, make sure to enable birthday notifications.
