Facebook has rolled out a new service browsing experience that will make it easier for users to find events happening in their area and even recommend similar events that may interest the user.
The service which was launched for its Apple iOS users comes with filters so that events can be searched by date, time, location and category, as it will make user’s search easy.
Instead of an uninspired list of events that you probably have no desire attending, you’re met with a nice interface that lets you take on a sort of choose your own adventure role to mapping out your evenings or weekends.
For example, if you want to go for a concert, gallery opening, or wine and cheese, Facebook can recommend where to go. These can all be sorted by date to find the right place for the right time.
It has also incorporated a “Suggested For You” section based on all of Facebook’s data about the account holder.
Under the “Suggested For You” section, a categorised suggestions list with sections, including Music, Food and Drinks, Nightlife, Sports and Fitness, Fine Arts and Crafts, Community, Film and Photography, Performing Arts, and Causes could be found.
Users searching for something to do on a weekend afternoon or evening will not need to go any further than the events tab on Facebook. If you have an idea of where you would like to go, Facebook can help you find the perfect event.
In addition, the updated Events feature also allows users to purchase event tickets in the app, as well as create notifications. The feature also permits users to show their interest in an event, without making any commitment to attend the event.
According to TechCrunch, Facebook has over 450 million people using its Events feature.
