Facebook events are a great way to invite people to an event and to communicate updates. We have a family get-together coming up and I decided to use Facebook for just that.
After I created the event, I noticed that someone I did not know showed up in the stream of conversation about our family dinner. How did that happen? Well, the default setting on events is that friends of friends can see and comment. Do yourself a favor, change the settings on your event so that only invited guests can see and post comments (unless you want your event to go viral…then, don’t.)
