Localist Works With Facebook Events


To help spread the word about an upcoming event, some events on a Localist platform are also manually created on Facebook by students. Many students would mark themselves as “Going” on Facebook, but their attendance wouldn’t be reflected on the Localist side. We’ve added a feature to fix that. When the URL of a Facebook event is assigned to an event on Localist, our platform will automatically pull in the attendee list from Facebook and append it to the “People Going” list. This will result in a much more accurate RSVP list on Localist’s event listings.
