Facebook Events don’t work anymore - what’s the alternative? 😵‍💫

We get it, Facebook Events was *the go-to* back in the day - everyone was on it, you had a clear start and end time, the location was saved, you could easily see everyone attending and photos and videos were dropped right into the page after the event - life was good 😌

But that’s just not the case anymore. Facebook’s long gone and Facebook events… don’t even get me started 😳 

You're talking into an empty void

There’s no point trying to arrange anything when you’re speaking into a literal void. Facebook notifications get missed, everyone's ignoring the updates and nobody is replying to invites or RSVPing 🙄 Whether it’s trying to plan a birthday party, organise a holiday or even just get together for drinks, trying to sort it on Facebook Events is just not worth it. 

Friend doesn't have Facebook anymore? Tough 😤

Want to invite your friends who don’t have Facebook anymore? Tough luck because Facebook doesn’t let you invite anyone that’s not on it. No sharing links in the group chat, sending invites by messages or adding people via email or phone number. 

Enjoy your event, a party for one 🧍‍♂️

The separate sub-group chats for every FB event

You know the event has to break off into a group chat to discuss too… that post wall just doesn’t hit the same. Constantly going back and forth between a group chat to a Facebook event for details and updates means you’re missing out on information - and don’t even get us started on trying to organise plans on WhatsApp? 

So, what’s the alternative to Facebook?

That's where Howbout steps in (you're welcome 😌)

With Howbout, you can instantly see when your friends are free and actually get your plans made (finally!). Make shared calendars, create polls, talk and share images and videos in the group chats attached to every event - it’s Facebook Events on steroids. 💪

🕺 All of your plans can stay in one place

Keep all of your plan details - from big birthday parties to a meet-up at the pub - all in one place. What date and time, where and who’s going are all in one place for all your friends. You can also customise your event with pictures or gifs to make your plans more ✨aesthetically pleasing✨.

So, that means no more random group chats on three different apps, no more missing out on key details about the plan and no more missing invites on Facebook Events because you don’t use it anymore - it’s all in Howbout 🕺.
