Facebook changes Events tool; know how to use

The Facebook Events tool was redesigned by the social network in order for this type of publication to gain evidence when posted on the users' profile. The appeal is now limited to ten categories such as engagement announcement, news of a new job or moving to a new home.

In addition, new settings have been added to the platform: it is possible to choose the image of the publication from a gallery of illustrations of Facebook itself, or to take pictures of pages or users marked in the post. Videos can also be included in Events. Here's how to use the in-app feature for Android and iPhone (iOS) from Facebook and on the PC through the site.
