  1. Sorry but i did what you said but facebook doesnt have that option anymore cant find birthday reminders

  2. Same thing is happening to me. I did what you said and still no reminders.

  3. I too did the same but facebook is no longer offering this option (You will receive emails about upcoming Birthdays) notification under the Notification-Email Tabs. With always receiving theses notifications on Saturdays, this feature is no longer in effect just starting this past Saturday 06/01/2013

  4. This DOES NOT WORK apparently Face Book has changed the settings and the above pages as it used to be is no longer that option is NOT there. I and many others have writen to FB and they do not care they do not answer.

  5. Birthday reminders didn't work for me.
