Invite Friends to Facebook Events or Share Them on iPhone 6
Kara, Melissa Rae, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. You're watching a series of Facebook videos, and in this one, I'm going to show you how to invite friends to Facebook events or share one on your Timeline.
To start with, unlock the phone using the fingerprint lock.
Go straight to the Facebook application, The icon for it looks like a blue square with a white letter "F" in it.
Let's give it a tap, and we'll end up on the News Feed.
In order to access events, we need to go to the main Facebook menu.
Tap on the "More" option, which is located on the bottom right-hand side of the phone to access the menu.
If we look at the second section of the menu which is called "FAVORITES", we want the second option, "Events".
Tap on "Events", and they will appear.
If there are some events we would like our friends to join, tap on the event.
We could pick the jazz festival.
After accessing the main page for the event, we should tap on "Invite", which is on the top menu bar next to "Post" and "More".
It has a little envelope icon. The pop-up menu will appear which gives us the option to share an event or choose friends.
Tap on "Choose Friends", and a list of friends will appear that might be interested in going to the event.
Let's pick some friends.
Just tap on the little circle next to the profile picture and name, and some check marks will appear. Scroll down a little bit to see which friends might be interested in going. We've picked six friends.
To double-check the amount of friends we've picked, we can see the little number next to a friend's profile picture in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
Tap on the number, and we will see the full list of people we've picked.
To send the invitation for the event, we should tap on "Send", which is located in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
We will receive their answer in Notifications, which is located in the bottom menu bar under the little globe.
We just sent invitations for events to friends on Facebook.
To post the event on our Timeline, we need to open the event, and tap "Invite".
Right now it's public.
We can change it to make it only available for friends. In that case, tap on the globe.
Tap the circle next to "Friends".
We can write text or leave it the way it is.
To share the event on our Timeline so that our other friends can see it, tap on "Post" located at the top right-hand corner of the screen. It might take a second or two to load.
Tap the arrow at the top left-hand corner of the screen to go back.
Tap on "News Feed" at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, and tap it again to get the updates.
Drag it down to see, and here's our post that we just shared on our Timeline.
Our friends will probably be able to see it and join or not join as they like.
You just watched me invite friends to Facebook events and share the events on the Timeline.
