Facebook users can apparently, finally now invite non-Facebook users to events via their email addresses, and the social network is also prompting users to invite friends to events via personalized messages on its Messenger application.
Reader Matteo Gamba shared the screenshot below with SocialTimes, in which the following message appeared at the top of an events-creation screen:
New! Now you can invite people by typing in their email address, even if they don’t use Facebook.
Gamba also shared this screenshot, in which a pop-up bubble on the events-creation screen read:
New! Send a personalized note to friends and invite them through Messenger.
Readers: Are you surprised it took Facebook this long to introduce the capability to invite non-Facebook users to events?
