Export Facebook Events to Personal Calendar

I get so many event invitations on Facebook.  I RSVP for so many events on Facebook.  I almost always forget to attend events that I RSVP for via Facebook.

However, lately my beloved Facebook *chuckles here* has been making changes to many of the features around the site.  Some are accepted with open arms and others….well not so welcoming.   Last week I was wasting time on checking out the Facebook event page and decided to click on the buttons.   Well, on the upper right corner, there is a button that looks like a snowflake.  To my surprise, I found that I can export my Facebook events directly to my calendar.

Now that’s what I’m talking about Facebook.  They have been holding out on me.   I also noticed that the export option is also on the lower left side of the event page too.  I think I’ve overlooked it.  Whatever the case, I love it!

You can save to calendar or send to email.  The save to calendar option sends it to Outlook.  I send mine to email and then save event to Google calendar.

In the past I had my Facebook calendar synced to my cell but I got paranoid about them possibly having access to my contacts and other data.   So this is a great option for me.

What about you?  Do you already use this feature?  Will you start using it?
