Windows Phone Calendar API doesn’t provide access to Facebook events/birthday. So the Facebook events/birthday that we see in the device default calendar can’t be replicated into our apps. To overcome this we will use some tips and tricks, and Microsoft Live Connect SDK to get the Facebook birthday events in our app. If you are new to Live Connect SDK, suggest you to visit this article for better understanding.
