There are numerous events being planned on Facebook, so it seems common sense that the company developed a dedicated app. The Facebook Events app is now available for iOS and allows users to stay up to date with the latest nearby events and find interesting activities.
The main purpose of the Facebook Events app is to let us easily find local events or to simply get a peek at what’s going on in our area.
On the main screen of the app, you can see all upcoming events you’re planning to attend, those your friends are interested in, event updates and recently announced events from pages you like.
It’s also very easy to find new events since you can browse event recommendations based on interests, location and time. You can also see events in your area, or in other location on the interactive map, as well as search for events in specific cities.
You can also view future events in the calendar, which also shows the days when you’ll be attending events and the ones in which you’re free. Another useful option is to import other calendars from your phone to see them side by side with your Facebook events to simplify planning.
As expected, your interactions with events will also be public on Facebook, allowing your friends to see your interests,and the events you plan to attend, even if they don’t have the app installed.
At the moment, Facebook Events is only available for iOS owners that live in the US (download link below), but it’s also scheduled to launch on the Android platform in the near future.
