– Facebook has launched a new feature giving users the ability to create and
invite friends to Events directly from their Facebook home pages. A new
"What are you planning?" field will appear when clicked from the home
page, allowing users to quickly create a simple event listing and share it with
friends. The existing, more-detailed Events tool will also be maintained,
"for more formal events or those you’re planning further in advance,"
the company said in a blog post.
