Import Events From Facebook.
It seems like everyone’s on Facebook. And if you’ve logged into your account lately, you know that someone is always promoting an event of some kind. Whether you’re hosting a party or attending an obligatory music recital, Facebook gives everyone an avenue to host a gathering.
With the Facebook Events add-on, you can tap into the growing number of events Facebook users are organizing by importing public events from a specific organization or page directly into your WordPress site. (Please note: importing from Facebook Groups and individual profiles are not supported at this time.)
Imported events are manually or automagically created as entries in The Events Calendar. Basic event data along with venue & organizer are populated appropriately. No more entering information in two places, or having to recreate someone else’s listing for a public event you want to include on your WordPress calendar.
Not a PRO user? No problem. The Facebook Events add-on works fine with The Events Calendar or as a supplement to PRO.
Don’t forget to check out our Facebook Events new user primer to get a broader picture of what the plugin can do. If you’re wondering about the features of this add-on or are unsure whether it will accomplish what you want it to, please review the new user primer before buying to make sure know what you’re purchasing.
If you’ve got ideas for features or functionality that would make your life easier, share them with us…we’re always listening.
Keep in mind: You may not be able to import events that Facebook deems adult in nature, including breweries, bars, night clubs, and adult entertainment. The Facebook API dictates that only public, unrestricted events are importable at this time.
Special thanks to Mark Nelson for his inspiration with the Sync Facebook Events plugin.
