The Facebook Events tool was reformulated by the social network with the objective that this type of publication will gain evidence when posted on the users' profile. The feature is now limited to ten categories, such as an engagement announcement, news of a new job, or moving to a new home.
In addition, new configurations were added to the platform: it is possible to choose the image of the publication from a gallery of illustrations from Facebook itself, or to take photos of pages or users marked in the post. Videos can also be included in Events. See how to use the feature on the Android and iPhone (iOS) Facebook application and on the PC via the website.
