Facebook events are a simple and convenient way to bring friends, family, coworkers, or even strangers to gather together. 

With a few clicks on the mouse or taps on the iPhone screen, you can create a Facebook event that includes all the necessary details, including its location, timing, dress code, charitable goals, and number of attendants.

More importantly, you also have the option to set the Facebook event to be public which can be readily viewed by anyone on the platform, or set to private, with only invitees able to view the event.

But whether you were the creator of or an invitee to a Facebook event, the event does not serve its full purpose if you forget all about it. Fortunately, you can very easily add the Facebook event to your iPhone calendar and make life much easier to manage. 

Here’s how to do it.
