Question from Doreen T.: I always try to send birthday greetings to all of my Facebook friends on their actual birthdays, but sometimes things come up and I can’t get on Facebook at all on a given day.
When I log into Facebook the next day, the birthdays from the day before are gone.
Is there a way to see yesterday’s birthdays on Facebook without scrolling through an entire year’s worth of events? I’ve done that and it takes forever!!
Rick’s answer: Hi Doreen. It’s quite common to miss a given day’s birthdays on Facebook, but fortunately there is a very simple solution for viewing them. Just follow the steps below for the device you’re using…
If you’re using a laptop or desktop computer:
1 – While on your “Newsfeed” page, click on the Events link over in the left-hand column.
2 – Click the Birthdays link located in the left-hand column. You should now see a list of your friends who have a birthday today listed on the page.
3 – Yesterday’s birthdays should be listed at the top of the right-hand column. If you have more than four friends who had a birthday yesterday you can click the number at the end of the line to display them all.
If you’re using the Facebook app on a mobile device:
1 – Tap the Menu icon (it looks like three horizontal lines stacked atop one another).
2 – Tap Events.
3 – Tap Calendar. You should now see the birthdays listed on the screen with today’s birthdays at the top. Scroll up to see yesterday’s birthdays.
That’s all there is to it Doreen. I hope this helps. Good luck!
Update from Doreen: That’s exactly what I was looking for Rick. Thanks a ton!!!!
