In case you still had questions about it, the newly upgraded Facebook Events app works great on iOS. As the company has explained, the changes that Facebook has made to its Events platform are meant to mirror the growing tendency of smartphone-created events.
Two days ago, Facebook announced they were releasing a new upgrade for their already familiar Facebook Events section. The upgrade is not only meant to make events more accessible, but also to allow users to create new meetings using just their iOS-based functions.
Thanks to the recent modifications, the new Facebook Events app has new options. Users can now search for nearby events based on their interests. This means, they will no longer wait for an invitation to appear on their newsfeed, but rather search for them long time ahead.
There is a list of categories that users can skim through in search of new events. These offer a better reorganization of social gatherings, based on their relevance to the fields of Sports and Fitness, Nightlife, Music and Food and Drinks.
Facebook Events, will nevertheless continue to take users by surprise with suggested entries. These will be posted on the Suggested for You section and they will most likely be in keeping with the previous searches that the user has made.
Until now, Facebook Events was rather limited because they were only based on the geographical area were users resided. The social network is working to change this, considering that mobility is the word that best suits today’s event members.
By accessing the “Popular in Your Area” section, members can get insight on events taking place in nearby cities and regions. Only several cities have access to this new option for the moment, the company has further added.
There is one more aspect that Facebook will have to work to change in the following period. Its Facebook Events app has been upgraded only for the iOS smartphones, whereas Android and desktop devices are still using the previous version.
The Android update will be improved, depending on the feedback that the company will get from iOS users. Users’ impression will also dictate how much time Facebook needs to release the Android update.
