    • 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!

  • 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?



    • 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

  • 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?

    • 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.

  • 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!

    • 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.
