Facebook has added a feature, which allows users to add events and invite people to them right from the publisher box. Now creating an event is pretty much as simple as sharing a link.

To add an event, just push the "more" arrow button on the publisher box, and you will find events. Once you fill out the form, it will be posted to you news feed, and you can invite guests from there.

When you click "invite guests" you will be able to go through your Facebook Friends and choose who you want to invite.

"You might wonder why you wouldn’t just invite friends to an event using a status update," says Facebook’s Bo Hong Deng. "Creating an event in the Publisher helps you better organize the event details, and your friends can RSVP immediately when they see it in their News Feeds. This is more structured than a status update and also takes full advantage of the Events application. You can easily find out which of your friends are coming, and of course, they can comment on the event’s wall, share photos and use other Events features."

It is important to note that once you create an event in the news feed, anyone will be able to join and invite others to join. You can change this in the app and make it closed or secret if you wish.

    I’m finding a key to social marketing with my
    business is building as much as possible in as
    many major social networks as I can~
    Whenever I have something relevant to post
    I Always post in MySpace, FriendFeed, Twitter,
    FaceBook & Digg simutaneously….
    I think this is one of the hidden keys to
    Web marketing, using several social networks in
    tandem with each other, because a lot of
    friends on MySpace may just happen to be
    checking their FaceBook or Twitter page that day,
    & vice versa…so if I post everywhere the odds are
    better of being seen somewhere…..
    I’m excited because this technique has taken my
    Alexa Rank of my homepage from 26 million 6 months
    ago to under 2 million, mostly because of my 3 Twitter
    accounts linking to my Homepage…I’m just now beginning to work on FaceBook,
    ONE thing FaceBook Definitely needs to work on is that you have to be logged in to see FaceBook Events, whereas on MySpace Anyone can type in your URL, even if they’re not logged in, & see your events Calendar….Until FaceBook fixes this issue they are still behind the times with musicians & Concert Schedules….thankyou Web Pro News!
