Facebook has been testing multiple ways to get users to interact with events lately, but a recent addition may be a bit redundant. When users RSVP to Facebook events, there will be a link under the attendees’ names — “See Stories.” This will prompt users to welcome other people who are going to the events with posts.
After users say they’re going (or respond with a maybe), a link appears, asking them to see more stories:
It appears that Facebook is testing this new feature, but it seems fairly redundant, as users can simply post in event feeds and welcome their friends on “(friend) is attending this event” posts. Other ways that Facebook has tried to boost engagement on events resulted in users trying to invite friends, but this is an attempt to get discussion flowing within events.
