Facebook Helps Users Find Events On the Go

Facebook took more steps to make events easier to discover with the release of a new feature for iOS.

Users can now browse events in 10 major cities by topic, with options including music, food and drinks, nightlife and sports and fitness.

The social network said in an email to SocialTimes:

More and more people on Facebook are joining and creating events from their mobile phones, and this updated search feature will help them easily browse and filter for specific events at any given time.

You’ll also be able to browse by location if you’re not in your current city. You can further filter by location to see what’s happening in any other city.

Facebook also mentioned that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the subject of some 35,000 Facebook events with more than 2 million invitees, with about one-third of those events boasting users that were planning to attend from at least 50 miles away.
