    First, I should say that I finally figured out a way to do this. I was just wondering if there were better way. On my Windows 7 phone, Facebook events automatically add to the calendar. Maybe that's because you can add a Facebook account to the phone which persists through the different applications. That doesn't appear to be the way with the calendar app in W8. There's no option to add a FB account to it.

    What I did was I grabbed the events link from ( Then I went to the calendar section in and used that link to subscribe to a public calendar. This seems to be working so far, but there are far fewer features here than on my phone. For example, I can RSVP on my phone, but I can't find a way to do it on the calendar.

    Anyone know of a better way to handle this? Maybe I'm not seeing something...
