Have you scrolled through your Facebook and seen “EVENTS”
and you wondered what it means? We’ll tell you. Event on Facebook is a resource that is based on your calendar that notifies you of upcoming events. Now that you have known what an event on Facebook
is, let us take you through the steps to Create an Event on Facebook.
ON YOUR FACEBOOK APPLICATION:

- Scroll down and click on “Events”
- Click on the blue button at the right-hand bottom corner of the page
- On the top of the page, tap on the drop-down button to choose between a “Private” or “Public” event.
For “Private event”

- Add friends to co-host the event by tapping on “Co-hosts”
- Tap on “Create” at the bottom of the page to create the event.
For “Public events”

- If you are an admin in any page, you can allow the page to stay as the “Host”, (the page will automatically appear as host), if you decide otherwise, just tap on “Host” to change it to your preference.
- Fill in the event name, time, location, details, and ticket URL

ON YOUR BROWSER:
To create a private or public event:
- Click on “Events” in the left menu of your News Feed.
- Click on “Create Event” in the top right.

- Fill in the event name, details, location and time. If you’re creating a public event, you can:
- Add multiple dates and times
- Select a category for your event
- Add keywords about your event
