Since Facebook is a social networking site it is designed to allow people to locate their friends by searching for their names and/or profile info. The major role in profile info is played by the date of birth of the user. By default Facebook displays the entire date of birth which includes the date month and year of birth. However if users want they can make appropriate modifications so that Facebook does not display the year of birth or they can also hide the entire date of first completely. Although this configuration is not recommended as it may become hard to locate a user if this is done but still if as a Facebook user you want to do so you can follow the steps given below:

  1. Open Facebook account by providing appropriate credentials in the logon field available on the website.

  2. On the main page click on the link displaying your name at the top right corner.

  3. On the next page click on Edit Profile button available at the top left corner.

  4. On the opened page make sure that you are on Basic Information option from the left pane.

  5. From the right pane choose the appropriate option from the drop-down field available under Birthdaycategory.

  6. Once done click on Save Changes button to save the changes.
