How do I change my birthday and choose who I share it with on Facebook?

There's a limit to how many times you can change your birthday. If you've recently changed it, you may have to wait before you can edit it again.
Change your birthday
  1. From your main profile, click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Click About, then click Contact and Basic Info in the left menu.
  3. Scroll down to your birth date and click to the right.
  4. Use the dropdown menus to change your birthday and use the audience selector to choose who can see it.
  5. Click the box below your birth date to confirm your age.
  6. Click Save.
You can change who can see your birthday by adjusting the audience. There are 2 audience selectors next to your birthday: one for the day and month and one for the year. Friends won't get a notification about your upcoming birthday if you don't share the day and month with them.
If you have additional Facebook profiles, your birthday from your main profile will carry over to your additional profiles. You can’t change your birthday on your additional Facebook profiles, but you can change who can see your birthday on each of your profiles.
Change who can see your birthday on an additional Facebook profile
  1. Log into Facebook, then switch to the profile you want to use.
  2. In the left menu, click your profile picture.
  3. Click About, then click Contact and Basic Info in the left menu.
  4. Scroll down to your birth date and click edit.
  5. Click Only me next to your birth date, then select who can see your birth date.
  6. Click Save.
