Syncing Facebook Events with iPhone

How do I sync Facebook events with my Google calendar and/or iPhone calendar?

I have consulted Google but have come up short. Both these links have instructions, but there is no drop down menu for me to choose "export" from.

Is there another workaround? Thanks!

On a Facebook event page, on the right just below the event image I see a button with three dots. Clicking on that I see an option to export.

install the Facebook app on your iPhone if you don't already have it. Then go to iPhone settings, find Facebook settings, and set the slider to allow access to your Calendar app.

+1 donnagirl.

You can also go to this Facebook page, click on the "upcoming events" in the right-hand sidebar, and that will create a calendar subscription in your calendar app. Although I'm sure you need to be logged in to Facebook in order to fetch those calendar events anyhow.

Thanks! I had (and had been using) the Facebook app, but it appears I wasn't signed in to Facebook through settings but through the app only. I don't really get how that works, but it works now!
