How to Create An Event On Facebook

...

Facebook doesn’t limit the number of potential guests for your event.

Planning a party? Ditch the paper invitations and turn to Facebook instead. The social network’s Events feature makes it easy to plan everything from small, private get-togethers to large public events, and the RSVP system means that you’ll always know exactly how many people are planning on coming. The Event page is also a great way to keep guests updated on last-minute changes and to post photos after it’s all over.

 

Step 1

 

...

The “Events” option is just below “Messages.”

Click “Events” in the menu on the left side of your Facebook News Feed.

 

Step 2

 

...

Check the calendar view on the right to see if there are any other events that might conflict with yours.

Click “+Create” to create an event.

 

Step 3

 

...

Location and time details are optional, but you must choose a date for your event.

Enter the name and details for the event, including the location, date and time.

 

Step 4

 

...

Choose “Invite Only” for the most control over who sees your event listing.

Select the appropriate level of privacy for your event.

 

Step 5

 

...

All invited friends will receive a notification as soon as you click “Create.”

Click “Invite Friends” and choose whom you’d like to invite to your event. Click “Create” when finished to finalize your event.

Tip

After you’ve created your event, you can add photos and additional details to the event page. You and your guests can post updates to the event page, and you can track the status of your invitations to see who has accepted and who has declined.

You can make your Facebook event secret while creating the event page.

Facebook lets you create events and invite your friends and lists to attend. Your Facebook friends can view the event page, RSVP to the event, post on the event’s Wall, interact with guests, view photos and other activities. Facebook events are public by default. If you would rather make the event secret to everyone but your invited guests, you can set the event to be private. This means it will be completely invisible to non-invitees and will not show up in any search results.

 

Step 1

 

Log in to Facebook and click the “Events” tab in the navigation menu to the left of the News Feed. This displays the Events page in your Facebook account.

 

Step 2

 

Click the “Create an Event” button near the top of the Events page. This displays an new event creation screen in which you can fill in the details for the event.

 

Step 3

 

Click the calendar near the top of the screen and select a date; then set the event time by clicking the adjacent drop-down menu and clicking a time.

 

Step 4

 

Type the appropriate information in the “What Are You Planning?,” “Where?” and “More Info” boxes. Click the “Select Guests” button to add friends and lists to the event.

 

Step 5

 

Click inside the box labeled “Anyone Can View and RSVP” to deselect it. This makes the event secret to non-guests. Optionally, click inside the box labeled “Show the Guest List on the Event Page” to deselect it if you want to make guest list secret.

 

Step 6

 

Click the “Create Event” button to finish setting up the secret event page and invite the selected guests.

Step 1

 

Log in to Facebook from the home page and head to the “My Events” page using the menu link (see Resources below).

Find a friend’s event by entering a keyword in the search field. You can also browse events by clicking on an event topic link.

Browse through the events until you find the one you want to attend. Depending on the privacy level, you will be able to see some or all of the details. For global events, you will be able to see the location and other specifics.

 

Step 4

 

Request to be invited to a friend’s closed events. If one of your friends is having an event and didn’t invite you, simply click “Request an Invitation.”

RSVP to a Friend’s Event

 

Step 1

 

Log in to Facebook. If you have been invited to a friend’s event, then you will have a notice posted on your home page and emailed to you.

 

Step 2

 

Find an event you want to be invited to. You can also RSVP to open events and request that you be invited to closed events. Once your friend invites you, you will receive an RSVP notice.

 

Step 3

 

Click the “Add to My Events” to RSVP to a global event.

 

Step 4

 

Select the radio button next to “Attending,” “Maybe Attending” or “Not Attending” to RSVP for an event.

 

Step 5

 

Check your ‘My Events’ page to view events you are planning to attend. You will be able to view all the details and the writing on the wall (comments posted by other event-goers).

Things You’ll Need

  • Facebook account
  • Computer with Internet access

Tip

You can use the “Search” link from any page to reach a generic search form that also allows you to look for events. You can easily remove events from your My Events page if you decide you are no longer attending. You can also choose “Not Attending” in the RSVP section. Head to the Facebook Help section for tips on using the search forms (see Resources below).

Warning

If you are posting your own events, make sure you don’t include your home address in a global event, which shows everyone all the details. You can only view closed events if they are being hosted by your friend or someone in your network.

Evites make it easy to track who is coming to the party.

The Evite website enables you to email party invitations and keep track of RSVPs. The system automatically sends out reminder emails two days before the event to all guests, except to those who have RSVP’d that they are unable to attend. If you want to send out additional reminders, you can do so at any time using the “Send a Message” feature.

Send a Message

You can resend your Evite to your guests with any additional messages or reminders at any time by clicking on your invitation and selecting the “Send a Message” option. You can also pick who on your guest list will and will not receive the re-send of the invitation and the message; by default the message will be sent to everyone on your original list, including those who have already RSVP’d “No” to the event.
