    Default Facebook Events and Calendar Sync Issue

    Hi!

    I have an HTC One on the WIND network in Canada.

    I have Facebook sync for Events and Contacts set up on my phone. I noticed something peculiar today: my Facebook friends' birthdays are syncing on my phone, but my Facebook events are not. I don't know if this is a recent problem or if it's always been there (never really paid attention). I removed my FB account on my phone, uninstalled the app, reinstalled the app, added my account again, set up the sync and I was still having the issue. I've tried searching extensively on this forum and throughout the web, but no luck so far.


    Anyone else having a similar issue? Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

    I don't use FB Events often but as a matter of fact I'm going to a concert next week and just checked this out.
    Although I can see the same day a birthday the event is not there in my phone.
    I don't know if it's normal or not though, just that you are not alone.

    The same happens in another Calendar app I have, so I think it's more of a Facebook thing than an app things.

    It's good to know that someone else is experiencing this, thanks for letting me know!

    I think you're right, this is a Facebook thing. I wish I had paid attention from the beginning so I would know whether this is a recent issue, or has been an issue from the beginning. I guess there isn't much to do until the app is updated *sigh*

    They used to work... This only started happening in February sometime.. I've always used this feature and thought it would be just a temporary problem.. =(

    Mine hasn't stop working and I've had a few facebook events on.

    Have you guys double checked in Calendar that you've got your Facebook account listed in there and ticked?

    Calendar > 3 dots > Accounts (multi-calendar)

    I have the same issue, unchecked and checked the box for synchronisation, deleted and reinstalled the app twice, googled for hours, nearly no matches... nothing worked. In the sync-options there is an error which says that there are currently problems with the synchronisation... Since weeks.

    I have a HTC One Mini with Android 4.3 and HTC Sense 5.5

    yeah... mine is checked... The only thing I haven't tried is reinstalling the app but I don't want to lose all my linked contacts and such

    I have the same problem, since February 12 to be exact, I was hoping to find some solution here, cause I've tried everything. I've reported the problem to facebook as well... Has anyone found a solution yet?

    After I verified my FB calendar was linked, I had to hit 'Sync' in the 3 dots menu. It brought it all there, birthdays AND events.

    I'm using Kitkat if it matters.

    I believe it's a Sense 6 thing because I didn't change anything and now it works.
    I rarely use the FB events but I was delighted to see a concert I was going to appear in my calendar.
