My birth year is not seen on my Facebook profile in timeline, at upper right.
How can do that ? I tried many things, added posts and changed their time to older time, my birthday time, but I couldn't do it.
I don't know if I have to use some FBML code for this.
Does anyone have a solution to this ?

Edit :
My birth day and year is visible to everyone.

Here is a screenshot :
In the image, "Doğdu" means born in Turkish.
enter image description here
In fact I have born in 1979 but
but here it seems as 2000.

What you're seeing is normal. Even if you have events the same year as your birth, there's just a line for "Born" (or, in your case, "Doğdu").

Here's a screen shot of mine:

timeline decade list

I was born before 1971.

So, click on Doğdu and you'll see your entry for when you were born.

  • I have an event to 1979 (as I have born in 1979), I have posted some things to 1979 also but still its not seen in these years. (Yes, 'Doğdu' means 'Born' in Turkish. What can I do other than this, to be able to display my birth year in these years ? Oct 26, 2014 at 12:35
  • You can't. That's the way Facebook displays things.

In your profile go to:

About -> Contact and Basic Info -> Birth Year

And it will have the option to edit or add your birth year, as well as select which of your FB contacts can see that information.

  • But I've already done before. Though I checked the visibility and its visible for everyone, already. What I'm missing ? Aug 12, 2014 at 6:48

Goto profile>About>Basic Information// And check if your birth year and birth date are not under "Only Me"

When you place your cursor hovering about your Birth Date/Year, look at the right, if there is a Lock sign means only you can see it, if there is a Globe sign means everyone can see it e.c.t.

  • My birth day and year is visible to everyone. Aug 12, 2014 at 9:26
  • Then in that case I'm not very sure...I'll tell you when I know! Aug 12, 2014 at 10:01
