Facebook Testing 'Suggested Events' Based on Pages and Places


Some users are seeing a “Suggested Events” feature that recommends events based on pages they like and places they’ve been, as first reported by TechCrunch. This replaces and expands upon the “Friends’ Events” section that listed events to which others had RSVP’d.

[Update 12/23/11 10:45 a.m. PST: We have learned Suggested Events also includes recommendations based on artists users have listened to.]

Suggested Events is an example of how Facebook can leverage data beyond the social graph, connecting users to things based on interest and location as well.
