Description

Our new name is Facebook Local! We’ve updated our events app to help you discover places and things to do recommended by friends you know and trust. Keep up with what’s happening locally—wherever you are—whether you’re looking for something to do with friends this weekend or want to explore a new neighborhood. Features: * See the most recent activity, events and places your friends are interacting with and updates from event hosts and Pages you follow. * Find events and activities happening near you on an interactive map and filter by time, category, location and more. * Get recommendations based on what's popular with your friends, things you've been to in the past, Pages you like and our curated Guides. * Choose to add calendars from your phone to see all of your plans in one place. * Opt-in to get notifications about your upcoming events so you know if details change. What's New: * Simplified navigation - now it's much easier to find suggested events and places to go. * Automatically shows you the best places as you move the map around. * Faster access to your upcoming events. * Bug fixes and performance improvements. * Improved list creation and integration with the map.

  • Bring back facebook events.

    Stop showing me events on my calendar from a bar I went to once. I want to see my events that I am interested in only when I go to my event calendar. Not events that exist an hour away that because I Checked into once. Bring back facebook events the way it was before. The interface is terrible. I am searching for an event, local map area, then it spreads out from my map area to like a 100 mile radius.
  • Did the product manager do any usability testing?

    No. Please god do some usability testing. This app used to be good, every new update is making it worse.
  • Used to be awesome and essential

    I wish they’d go back to how it was a year or two ago. If I’m looking for an event in my local town, I don’t want see half of the results that are for cities up to 2.5 hours away. Search in map was great. Please bring it back so it actually works.
  • WHY was calendar view removed?!

    Seriously this app removing the ability to compare facebook events with other things on a calendar made it go from five stars to one star. There’s no reason for me to use it at all unless that gets put back.
  • Useless!

    Calendar and integration with iPhone calendar is gone, attempts to access help cause app to crash - deleting this until you come up with an update that restores the calendar integration.

    This app is getting harder and harder to use.... now there’s no calendar. I just wanna know what I said I’m interested in. Oh and for a long time they stopped showing what friends were interested in something. Ugh
  • Getting worse with each update

    It appears the people that design this app do not use the app, because each release is more useless than the prior one. The latest release removed the option to see all events happening at my starred places. Now I have to go to each website to browse events and manually add them to my personal calendar, eventually I will stop using Facebook events/local just as I did with Facebook itself.
  • The app is useless to me.

    If I search for a specific activity, like car shows, the app shows these results in some random fashion based on my friends' interests and I can't filter them by date or distance. Facebook, I don't want you to give me a guided tour of whatever your algorithm thinks I will be interested in. I want you to give me a tool that I can use to dig deep and find the things I need. The current incarnation of this app is weak and I'm uninstalling it.
  • Good app to have, still needs improving

    80% of the reason I still have a facebook is to keep up with events (I manage and attend a lot of art/performance events) and having this app on my phone lets me track them on mobile without dealing with the rest of the noise of facebook. However, the app makes it a little hard to access/search for future events you have already RSVP’d to (they are discoverable but not the way you’d initially expect) and for some reason it doesn’t show you the number of people RSVP’d to the event! Event description and comments are all easily accessible, though, so there’s a lot to like about this app if you, like me, still rely on the platform for events.
  • Bring back calendar view

    The main reason for using this app was because FB main app didn't have calendar view for events and this did. Now this also has dropped calendar view. Who is making these calls and can't see the usefulness of calendar view. Ugh.
