Looking for instructions how to hide birthday on Facebook mobile (Android)?

Luckily Facebook allows you to choose to whom you display your birthday information. The options vary from publicly available to completely private. Interestingly, most people set the date to be visible to their friends, but hide the year. This way, your friends will be able to congratulate when you have your birthday, however they won’t know how old you turned. Which, for many, is a secret that they take to their grave. 😉
