Most of us use Facebook for social networking purposes, and some of us use it for business purposes as well. Whether we are looking for a solution or an opinion, Facebook is a great platform for connecting with our customers and potential customers. There are many reasons why it is important to create a life event on Facebook, and this is one of them. So let’s see how to add a life event on Facebook. 

Step By Step Guide To Add Life Event On Facebook:

Here’s a simple way to add more life events to your Facebook timeline. In this post, I’m going to explain how to do the basics of what you need to know before you start adding more events. First, you’ll need to create a new page that is relevant to you, whether it’s your blog, your business, or something else entirely. Next, you want to start posting, just like you normally would. The key is to share more personal content that can attract friends and family members and that includes all of your current and past life events. Here are the steps:

Step 1: Get The App:

The Facebook app is very handy for helping you plan and schedule your posts. Just download the app and set it up to notify you when your next event starts.

You can download the app for iPhone and Android devices. If you have an iPad, you can also use Facebook’s web browser on the iPad just be sure to add “www” to the beginning of the web address. For example, the website is The app is available on iTunes.

Step 2: Create A Post:

The post screen has three different options to choose from - photos, status, or links. Status gives you space to write a short message. Photos allow you to add pictures. Links open a browser with more information on the page.

Once you’ve made your selection, click on ‘Add’. On the left side of your screen, you will see an icon that says ‘Updates’.

Step 3: Select Your Location:

When you click on ‘Updates’, you should see a window that says something like ‘Choose which events you’d like to see in your updates.’

On this screen, click on the button that says ‘Choose’ then ‘More Locations’. You’ll get a list of places you’ve visited. Choose your location and then hit ‘Done’.

Step 4: Choose Your Post Type:

Now it’s time to add your events. You have four options: status, photos, links, and groups. Here are the instructions for each one:


Click on the small arrow at the top of the screen to choose a status. Write something like “Going out with friends tonight.”


Click on the photo icon and select your event. Click on the camera to take a picture, or just click on ‘Done’ to save it.

Click on the link icon and choose where to go. The app will open in a browser so you can add your event details there. Click on ‘Done’ when finished.


For this option, you can create a group. Groups give you the ability to organize posts and messages. It’s like creating a Facebook page that only members of your group can see. To create a group, click on the button that says ‘Create Group’.

When you’re done, you can share your event details by clicking on ‘Updates’. You’ll see a list of all your posts, with photos, status updates, links, and groups on top. You can edit any post, or add a photo, status update, link, or group.

Types Of Life Events To Add On Facebook:

Every day, I get questions about different types of Facebook events. For some of you, these questions will be new, and for others, they may have been there since Facebook launched the Events feature. Regardless, here are the basics of what’s currently available to help you use this valuable tool to connect with people.

Open Events:

This is the most basic type of Event. It appears when people share their plans to hold an event, such as a birthday party, graduation party, or another major life event. Open events appear at the top of the Events tab, on the right side of the page.

Group Events:

These are a new addition to Facebook’s timeline. When you create a group event, you can invite any of your friends to attend, and all of them will be able to accept the invitation. Your invitees are notified via email that they’ve been invited to the event. You can also add a location and choose if they can invite friends too.

Private Events:

This is a way to let your friends know about a private event. Private events allow your friends to join if they wish to. You may also choose to hide this event from your timeline if you don’t want it to appear in your news feed. However, be careful, as people can still see that you added this event to your page if they visit the Events tab.

Shared Events:

These are similar to public events but you can choose to share this event only with a specific group of friends. For example, you may have a wedding or anniversary event that you want to share with just a few of your closest friends and also see how to hide mutual friends of facebook. You can even have different groups sharing the same event, so they won’t miss out.

Community Events:

These events are shared by the entire community. They show up on the home page and the Events tab. You can create them for local businesses or organizations, and invite people to join. Be careful when creating these types of events though, because the more friends that participate, the more people will see it when they visit Facebook.

You can sponsor a page, group, event, or ad, and pay to promote it. You can promote a page to increase its reach, and you can promote a group so its members see it. Sponsorships are also a great way to help raise awareness about your business and promote your brand.

These are similar to ads in that you pay to promote your posts. However, your audience is larger, so there’s less chance that you’ll get noticed if you do.

Group Event Reminder:

If you’re planning an event for a group, you can send them a message asking them to confirm their attendance. If they haven’t confirmed by the time you want to start the event, then they’ll receive the reminder. This feature works for both private events and public group events.

Birthday And Anniversary Reminders:

You can also use Facebook’s Birthday and Anniversary features. You can add details about a birthday party or anniversary event with the “send birthday messages” and “send anniversary messages” options.

Group Event Organizer:

In addition to using the tools above, you can also select yourself as an organizer for a specific group event. You may want to be the organizer of a wedding party, for example, if your friends want to plan it together.

Event location:

You can share your location information with people who are nearby your home or office. They’ll see your post appear in their news feeds and can join if they’re interested. Thanks for reading! Feel free to reach out via this link if you’d like to sign up for my coaching program.

Wrapping It All Up:

Facebook Events is an amazing way to make the world small. The events function has been available for a few years now and allows you to share an event with people in your network (friends, family, and followers). Once you create an event, it’s a simple matter to invite others to the event and share it with your network. So what are you waiting for? Read the above guide carefully and create an event on Facebook efficiently.
