Facebook is big on events. The company says that over 100 million people use Facebook events each day. Now, Facebook is launching a new app – Events from Facebook – dedicated to those who always want to be updated about events around them.
With millions of people using Facebook events every day to find and attend festivals, fairs, or concerts, etc, the feature is a pretty big deal. That’s why Facebook built a special app for those with constant FOMO,
With Events, users can catch up with any new events that their friends are interested in, get updates from events they are connected to, and find recently-announced events from Pages that they have liked.
Also, they can browse event recommendations for any time, location or interests, and explore events in different places – wherever they are, or wherever they will be. They can do so on an interactive map of events.
Facebook explains that,
Handy, right? Events also has a calendar for upcoming events which helps you better organise your time around them and your everyday life. You can also add other calendars to see what else you have going on at a particular time.
Events from Facebook isn’t isolated. Whatever users do on the app is also “visible and available on Facebook”. So, your friends can also see what you’re interested in and what you’re going to. The app is only available on iOS in the U.S. at the moment but will be coming to Android soon.
