Facebook is testing a new feature that automatically uses information from Page posts to create events, making the process of building events on pages a lot faster.
Don’t you just hate it when you have to fill in all those boring fields every time you want to create an event on your Facebook Page? Yes, I know you know that feeling. We all know that feeling. It seems Facebook feels you too – or at least it wants to encourage Page Admins to create more events. Yes, that’s probably more like it. Either way, Facebook is now testing a feature that makes event-creation a breeze.
According to a Facebook spokesperson, the company rolled out a simple “post to event creation feature” last year that make it a more straightforward experience to create events. The feature is for “newer event creators” or “event creators who want a simple event-creation process.” You know… without all the complicated advanced options that nobody uses – at least not for when you just want to create a quick event.
The way it works is pretty simple. As a Page admin, you post as you normally would. Facebook then takes dates, times, and other information from your post, and creates an event for you. You can then review the event to make sure all is good, and boom! You’ve got an event that people will be reminded of if they show interest in it. It is unclear if all Pages currently have the feature, or when it will be rolled out more widely.
