If you're adding an incorrect birthday to your Facebook account just because you don't like others to see your real age, there are no worries. you have the ability to limit who can see it. For example you can hide the year or the day and month or both of them as you wish. and to do so, just click the audience selector next to the day and month or the year, then choose who can see it.
