Announcing Your Own Special Event
Whether you’re planning a family get-together, a slam poetry competition, or a political rally, you need to get the word out to your people. The easiest way to is to create an event listing on Facebook. All you do is specify the who, what, when, where, and why and select the friends you want to invite. Facebook does the rest, sending out all your invitations in the blink of an eye. If plans change, just edit the event, and Facebook notifies everyone on your guest list!
In the following sections, we show you how to create and customize an event, invite guests, take a head count, print a guest list, and more. And in the unfortunate circumstance that your event fizzles, we even show you how to cancel it.
