Create a Facebook Event

If you need to organize a public gathering for a social cause, or want to arrange a private get-together for your office employees, Facebook Events allows you to easily create an event page and promote it to everyone that’s on your friends list.

You can gather around all your friends on a single page and update them with the details like the time and location of your event. Creating and managing an event on Facebook is cheap, quick and accessible to all your friends and contacts.

So if you are planning a picnic party, a reunion or a company wide get together, harness the power of Facebook and use it to your advantage with the instructions given in the guide below.

    You have the option to make your event either public or private.

    Private Event: Uncheck “Make this event public” to make the event visible to only those who you invite. A private event does not appear in search, and can only be joined by those who you invite.

    Public Event: Keep the “Make this event public” option checked to make the event accessible for everyone. Anyone can see the event name, description, and time of the event and can also request to join.
