    Default Calendar that can sync google calendar and Facebook calendar

    I just moved from blackberry to android and I am having some issues with the calendar. My old calendar had individual pop ups for each event, the pop up allowed you to open/snooze/ or dismiss each item individually. Also my old calendar had no trouble syncing my gmail and facebook calendars. Android seems to have trouble doing this seemingly simple task. Is there an app or special calendar that can do this? I have searched the forum and tried several apps to no avail any help would be appreciated.

    Go to Settings > Accounts > Google (your Gmail Account) and make sure the calendar and Facebook is set to sync. When calendar events pop-up events should be presented in the notification area with an option to snooze.

    Your best bet is to export your Facebook Calendars to your Google account/Calendar -- then you never have to worry about it again.

    Do this on a computer:
    Export Facebook calendars: https://www.facebook.com/help/152652248136178/
    While you're in your Gmail calendar, you can also add "Other Calendars" -> "Interesting Calendars" and choose "US Holidays" -- very handy

    Do this on your Android:
    After that, open your Calendar app -> Menu -> Calendars to Display
    Select the "Calendars to sync" button at the bottom and check the calendars you just created/added * (e.g., "Facebook Birthdays" and "Facebook Events" -- whatever you named them) if they're not checked already, and then make sure to check those two calendars when you go back to "Calendars to display" and you're done...

    * If they don't show up, go to Settings and force a Calendar sync, then go back to the Calendar app and do as above -- I've seen it take a few minutes otherwise to sync new calendars... sometimes.

    So unlike blackberry which automatically keeps it synced every time a friend or a company I follow adds an event rather than it auto syncing I have to go through these steps again everytime?! what a pain. There is no other way to do this?

    Not sure if your nexus 7 will work the same as my Galaxy S4, but if it does, I think I just figured this out for myself....

    Try this:

    Settings --> Accounts --> "Synch apps with Facebook".
    Click on your FB account name.
    Select "Sync Calendar" so that the box is checked off, and also push "Sync Now".

    It seems to sync my FB calendar onto my Phone calendar. Doesn't seem to show up on my calendar when I access it through chrome on my computer, but at least it's there on my phone.

    You can also edit alerts by opening the calendar on your phone then hitting the menu button and selecting "Settings".
