Facebook Redesigns Events With Calendar and List Views

Posted Jul 11, 2012

Facebook has redesigned their Events section so that you do not miss a party, birthday, or get together. The Events Calendar lets you see what is coming up weeks in advance. You can also see a List view that highlights each day’s birthdays, RSVPs, and suggested events.

The redesign originally started off as a Hackathon project about one year ago and it replaced the old Events page. ¬†All I can say is that it was about time. Having to click back and forward a bunch of times to see when a family member’s birthday is got to be pretty irritating. Upcoming months can be seen by scrolling down endlessly in Calendar View.

Pending invitations are shown at the top alongside buttons for accessing past events. If you are tagged in a photo or check-in at an event, these will show up in that day’s box as well.
