Facebook uses mainly from smartphone or tablet? No problem! If you want, you can change your date of birth and other personal information via the official app of the social network for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Here, in detail, all the steps you need to accomplish.
After starting the Facebook app on your smartphone or on your tablet, presses on your photos (in the box where it says, “What are you thinking?”) And select the item Edit information or update info on your profile page staff.
On the page that opens, if you use an Android terminal, presses on the item other information, scroll the screen up to the panel dedicated to the basics and make “tap” on the Voice Edit located in the upper right. If you use an iPhone, however, go directly to the panel dedicated to the basics and presses on the entry Edit located in the upper right.

You have created a Facebook page and would like to change the date marked as the beginning of its activities? Nothing easier, believe me. Sign in with Facebook from your computer, open the page for which you want to change the date of birth and select the item information from the left sidebar.
At this point, go with the mouse cursor to the Foundation (or even start, opening or date of birth) which is located under the heading Corporate (or information on the page) and click on the item Edit that appears on the right. Then use the drop-down menu that appears to set the new date of birth of the page, click the button Save and you’re done.
If you prefer to act as a smartphone, sorry but the official app of the Facebook Pages Manager for Android or iOS does not yet allow you to change the date of page creation.
If you want to change the date of foundation of a page via mobile phone, open Facebook from the browser (i.e. Chrome on Android or Safari on iOS), enables the desktop display of the site and proceed as I explained to you earlier about the computer. To enable desktop view of a site in Chrome just press the button (…) at the top right and select the option Request desktop site; to do that in Safari you have to press the icon of the sharing icon and select Request desktop site from the menu that pops up.
