The updated Facebook Events app is gradually rolling out to all users. To get to the calendar view, click on"Calendar" on the top left of your Events dashboard.
Facebook has redesigned its Events feature, now allows users to view friends’ upcoming birthdays, event invites and even suggested events on a calender – instead of traditional list format. The calender view for Events was originally developed at Facebook’s hackathons. “A couple of us felt there should be a better way for people to see their friends’ birthdays a few days in advance and make plans for the weekend. So we built it,” Bob Baldwin, the Facebook software engineer behind the project said in a blog post on the site. “Before recent changes, a few of us created a Facebook group called ‘Social Calendar Dreamers’ to spark discussion around making Events more visual,” wrote Baldwin. “At the next hackathon, engineers from the events, photos, messages and other teams worked through the night to build a better way to view events. By 6 a.m., we had a prototype that worked.”
