  • Allison - I am 100% onboard with the statement that "Events play an essential role in the growth and development of communities".

    My network is heavy on Events. And it has seen huge spikes in membership by having the option to Like an Event on Facebook.

    I am looking forward to this webinar, but would like to point out that allowing members to Like an Event on Facebook from any network is the essential part of that "growth".

    Currently, this feature is all sorts of busted up and needs immediate attention - please! 

    • So glad you'll be joining us, Mark, and thanks for pointing this out. We have a bug filed with Facebook regarding this issue with its social plugin. Hoping that they can prioritize it, as it is an important feature for many networks.

  • Signed up! =)

    • Yay! It's gonna be a great time. :)
