How to Create An Event On Facebook

intro

Planning a party? Ditch the paper invitations and turn to Facebook instead. The social network's Events feature makes it easy to plan everything from small, private get-togethers to large public events, and the RSVP system means that you'll always know exactly how many people are planning on coming. The Event page is also a great way to keep guests updated on last-minute changes and to post photos after it's all over.
