Inviting Your Friends to a Facebook Event

You have received an invitation to an event that someone setup on Facebook and you have clicked on the JOIN or MAYBE.   You can now invite your own friends to attend the event as long as the Event Administrator has allowed this.

It is a great networking opportunity to do this and the friends you select will receive an invitation to the event.  This is a good social media practice.

In this example note on the left it says “public” and you have selected “going” and then you see the “invite friends” button just below the header image.

When you click on the “invite friends” you can type in a friends name, browse all of your friends, or select a LIST e.g. by geographic area or interest if you have setup your lists.  Then click the small check box next to the friends that you think would be interested in the event.

Social media provides many ways to network virtually with the friends you meet in the real world.
