  1. Hi! Are there any pros/cons to adding an event to your page, rather than creating your own event?

    1. Regen, There are a few good reasons to add an event to your page, rather than creating your own event:
      1. It prevents confusion if there are any event details that change.
      2. Attendance will look higher, which will increase visibility for the event.

      The only time I’ve ever created a second event on my page is when the original creator didn’t create it correctly, but I never suggest having two Facebook Events for the same event.
      Thank you for your question!

  2. If someone else adds my event, will they get ‘co-host’ permissions and the ability to edit event details and respond to messages?

    I want other people to share my event, but I don’t want them to have co-host permissions. Is this method you describe the best way to do this?

    Also, how can I remove somebody else’s event from my page without deleting the event?

    best,

    Joanna

    1. Joanna,
      They’ll only be able to share it as an event to their page, they won’t be able to edit it.
      So yes, this is the best way to allow people to share your event, without giving them editing permission.
      To remove an event:
      1. Go to your event tab on your Facebook page
      2. Hover over the event you want to remove
      3. You should see a small “X” click on that to remove the event from your page

  3. Hi. I am trying to share and event that I was invited to and accepted.

    When I click on the … the options I get are Export Event, Unfollow Event, Notification Settings, Remove Me From Guest List. I can’t find any option to Share event or Add to Page.

    Is this because of the way the event was created?

    Is there a solution?

    1. Do you have a Facebook for Business Account? If so, you’ll need to open the event while logged into the business account. Facebook might just not recognize your Facebook profile and Facebook Page are linked.
      Please let me know if that helped, if not, can you send me a screenshot and I’ll see if I can figure it out.

  4. Hi Katie,
    I can’t seem to share an event to my Facebook business page without editing the date. For example, the event is on both Saturday and Sunday but I am only exhibiting on the Saturday. If I click the Saturday, the drop down menu doesn’t give me the option to share to my page. I can only share to my page if I share the event including both days. I don’t want to do this as it will look like I’m exhibiting both days. I’ve made this mistake already, and once done there is no option to edit or even delete!

    1. I’ve run into this issue before, and unfortunately there just isn’t a simple fix. I recommend having the original event creator separate the dates into two separate events, or just sharing the event and letting people know that your involvement is for just one day.

      Facebook events are still pretty clunky, I wish I had a better solution.

  5. Why are my photos from my business page showing up on another pages business event page? How can they do that?

    1. Ruth,
      I’m not sure… Does it look like they downloaded your images and re-uploaded them, or are they hosting events at your location?

  6. hi, I am managing a FB page, I created an event but by mistake the event was uploaded in general events, with my page just as a host. As a result all the likes and comments are not showing up on my page. Is there any way to make them show on the pages wall?

    1. I’m not sure I understand what happened. Did you create an event with your profile, but would like it to be shared via your page?

  7. Hi, I would like to message those who have clicked interested or going to my event. This is a public event that is a fundraiser so they aren’t my personal FB friends. Is this possible? Thanks

    1. You can add messages to the event, but not necessarily message each person directly.

  8. How do you add another’s event that has multiple dates? The Add to Page button doesn’t appear on those.

    Thanks!

    1. Events with multiple dates can be complicated. Are you trying to add just one of the dates or are you trying to add the full set?

      1. Hi Katie,

        thanks for writing this article. I too am wanting to add another person’s event to my facebook business page that has multiple dates. I want to add all the dates. Is there are way of doing this? thanks!

      2. Hi I am also trying to add an event with multiple dates. I have been able to do that in the past but for some reason with the event I am trying to add it isn’t working. I am trying to add the full set!

        1. Make sure you have the event as a whole selected, and not just one of the dates. If you’re on just once specific date it will only allow you to add that date to your page, but if you’re on the event overall it works the same as any other event.

  9. Hi! I am trying to add an event to my page with multiple dates. I do not get the add to page option. I have friends with business accounts also who do have the add to page option. Why would it be different with different business pages?

  10. Hi Katie, This is a great way to generate more exposure of events. Can I ask what this would be called please? Is there a name for this yet? It’s not co-hosting as such – it’s just sharing. I’m trying to think of a fun and logical name for this that I can add to my promotional packages for businesses. Thank you.

  11. I’d also like to know the answer to this; sharing an event with multiple dates to a business page. Thanks!

    1. I’ve found that people generally have trouble if they’re trying to share from a specific date. Double check that you’re logged in via a business account, and make sure that you have the general event (not just one specific date).
