Q. Is there a way to get the whole list of friends’ birthdays from Facebook on my Mac’s calendar program and have it stay up-to-date?
A. Facebook’s birthday list can sync up with the Mac’s built-in Calendar app, as well as with other popular programs like Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar. In most programs, you can add the birthday calendar by “subscribing” to it, much like you can do with other internet-based calendars that track holidays, astronomy events, sports schedules and other dates you want to observe. (If adding specialized calendars to your Mac appeals to you, visit iCalShare or a similar calendar-sharing site.)
