Facebook And Birthdays

Facebook seems intent on telling you about your friends' birthdays. To be fair, the iOS 6 problem is probably not Facebook's fault.

The problem this time is, if you have Facebook notifications delivered by SMS (text message), you'll get messages saying "Today is _'s birthday. Reply to write on his timeline." I don't want to hear about every single person's birthday!

There doesn't seem to be any way of turning this off. I've already disabled "Everything else", which you'd expect to include birthdays. For what it's worth, the earliest such message I received was on the 9th of December 2012.
