I had the same problem. I wound up having to create and add another gmail account in order for it to allow me to sync my first one. I could never get facebook to sync, even when I imported the file to my Google calendar. I just wanted to birthdays to sync up but I've since manually entered them.

I have not tried any import or export with Facebook but have not had any problems with other common applications.
IMO putting private data (birthdays are) in Facebook is at least 100 on the 1 - 10 scale of identity theft foolishness. Just do some news searches regarding Facebook, privacy, the Facebook apps.
The one problematic area I've had with Android is native ActiveSync being problematic compared to the third party options, Calendar worst among them. That data is from my being a sys admin who has had Droid phones on Exchange servers.

I recommend using the calendar associated with your Gmail account. You don't have to use the Gmail email address for anything other than establishing the Gmail account (mandatory to use the X). But the Gmail Calendar is VERY sweet ... syncs instantly to and from the X. Can set up reminders, etc., like any calendar app, but this one is tuned into the Google way of business and works extremely well. Best arrangement I've ever had with a calendar app.Always learning ...
