Why can’t you see birthday posts on your FB timeline?

If you think you are missing out on getting your b-day messages on your Facebook timeline, you need to ensure that your privacy settings allow your friends to post to your timeline.

So, to enable this option, you need to click on the down arrow (top right corner), and from the options, select Privacy Settings, find the option “Timeline and Tagging” and then click on Edit Settings.

In addition, you might be experiencing this issue due to not using the latest, up-to-date version of the Facebook app. Therefore, check for any Facebook updates, log out, and re-log back in.

How to find birthday posts on Facebook

  1. Open Facebook as usual.
  2. Tap on the three horizontal lines (to access the drop-down menu).
  3. Tap on Settings & Privacy.
