I just announced an event on Facebook, and I’m not sure what it did is the best thing.
It has put a post on my Facebook page which contains the title of the event followed by the description of the group, and then ‘downtomeet.com’ on the last line. There was no mention of the group name (which in my case gives an indication of the general location).
I’m thinking that the mixing of the event title and group description could cause confusion if I happen to put up an event which is a bit unusual for the group. For example if my group usually caters for people in the ‘intermediate to advanced’ category of something, but I periodically have an event aimed specifically at beginners, then the title and description are likely to contradict each other.
Also there is no mention of a date or time. I think people usually want to have some idea of when the event is when they first see it to know whether they are interested in finding out more.
However I can also see that maybe you don’t want to have too much detail on the Facebook post. I’m not sure quite what the right answer is, which is why I have mentioned this in the forum to see if other organizers have any thoughts on this.
