Calendar module not showing Facebook birthdays

  • After a clean install of MagicMirror2 without any errors displayed, i wanted to set up my calendar to show Facebook upcoming birthdays like it was before reinstall, but now i got the following errors and nothing is present in my calendar:
    PM2 log

    The facebook link for the calendar is ok, i have already checked that. I can display google calendar, facebook events, but facebook birthdays are not functioning.
    Does anyone else had this issue, or can help me?

  • After downgrading to Magic Mirror version 2.6.0 Facebook birthdays are working again.

  • Same problem after upgrading to 2.7.1 both calendars do not show any data anymore. Even disabling them does not bring up the default calendar.

  • I will also throw my name in the ring to say that after 2.7.1 facebook birthdays are not working anymore.

  • Upgraded to 2.9 and still no luck on the birthdays. Anyone?

  • @pugsly how do you get a link to the ics file?

    I see the people who’s birthdays are coming… but don’t see a way to get a link to it
    (so I can test)


    on the right side is a link to the ics

  • @samson_82 i have a link under events, Upcoming Events downloads an ics file…(but I don’t have any events listed there)
    but no link for birthdays.

  • This is the verification link to your account.
    So to your calendar on your profile.
    Via the link you can import your events into other calendars

    Only the birthdays somehow no longer appear.

    So it’s because of facebook and not because of the module
