You should be able to stop receiving Event Invites by following these steps: Go to Manage Blocking Add persona non grata to Block invites from. Once you block event invites from someone, you'll automatically ignore future event requests from that friend.

UPDATE: This answer has changed due to Facebook Events changing. Click "Events" on the left menu. Click "Invites" up at the top. (Should show a number indicating how many pending invites you have.) Hover over the event in question and a blue "X" should appear in the right corner of the event listing. Click the blue "X". :)

I just did it and was given more than the next event: Go to https://www.facebook.com/events/list Click the Gear on the right side of the screen In the drop-down menu, click on Export In the modal that is displayed, right-click on the upcoming events link and select Copy Link Address Paste the link into Google Calendar subscribe

Actually, there is a way to remove an event. You have first to join or decline, then you click on the "going" list or "Maybe" list. You'll find yourself & a small "x" next to it. Click "x" to remove the event.

It depends on the privacy settings of the event. From the Facebook help center Events have several different privacy settings available to the host: Public: Anyone can join and be added to the event guest list without receiving an invitation or being approved by a host. Anyone can see the event description, photos, Wall posts and videos. ...

Easiest way is when you click decline on one of the person's event invitations, there is now a popup box which asks you to leave a message, and there's a link there to block event invites from that person.

That’s strange. I get 12:00 pm and if I want to insert 12:00 am, I enter 00: and it gives me the list you are seeing—12:00 am. So it might very well be some kind of bug, or it could have something to do with the moment of the day when you are making the event. (Pure speculation since I can’t reproduce your situation.) Update: it depends on the moment of the ...

There is no way to disable the events wall specifically (the comments section under the event description). But you can disable people who arent invited from seeing the event all together by setting the event privacy to to 'Invite Only' From the Event Page: Edit -> Privacy: Invite Only (you can also tick the option to allow people who are invited to invite ...

You should use the new Groups functionality to achieve this. Create a group under the same name as your page and think of it as an inner circle to your more dedicated fans. You will then be able to invite group members to the event. Pages are meant to provide information without being a nuisance to the follower. It is basically an extension of a business ...

I have been looking at this for a few days and the nearest thing I could find to what you want is an iPhone App called EventsBook Apple Store Link Developers Website It can sync Events and Birthdays with Facebook although it is not clear whether you can accept or decline event invitations. Short of writing your own Application it doesn't look like their ...

There isn't a way to add formatting to the event description; it does not accept HTML markup. If you have event details that you want formatted in a certain way, I suggest putting the details on a separate web page and pasting the URL into the event description, or post a link on the event's wall. It will open in a separate tab when clicked.

There's an article on this here. I've not checked that it works, but it seems pretty straight forward. The essence is that instead of importing the calendar, you add the URL of your event feed as a public calendar - here's a summary of the steps: In Facebook click on "Events" Click on "Export Events" and copy the URL In Google Calendar go to "Add" under ...

Solution for October 2014 (if you don't see a "Today" dropdown as in the marked solution) Go in the Settings page of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/settings

For a page that allows you to see everyone who's currently blocked in one way or another (event invites, app invites, totally blocked, etc.) and allows you to add more people to block, currently this URL works like a charm: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=blocking

Select Events on the side while on the main page. Select Respond and at the bottom of the hover there is an option to remove the event. This should stop future messages from the event creator as well.

When you are creating the event, there is an option that says "Invite members of the host group to this event", but I'm not sure that it is possible to do so after the event has been created -- the option is no longer there when you go to edit the event or invite friends. I think you will have to invite the group members right from the start when creating ...

You could create a Sikuli script that would periodically log in and answer invites. Sikuli is a computer-vision-based UI automation tool. Check out the demos: http://sikuli.org/ EDIT: Something to look for -- they actually have some demos of folks using Sikuli to play Facebook games for them.

As of now there doesn't seem to be any way of restricting users posting on the events wall. I faced this problem a while back too.. But as a host you can always delete unwanted post/comments. Here's a possible work-around - why not create a FB group instead which offers better control. Then invite all members to an event but you will have to request them to ...

Events created by Pages have an option to allow only the page admins to post to the event wall. When you create the event, just check the box next to "Only admins can post to the Event wall." If you've already created the event, you can click the Edit button at the top right and you'll find the checkbox at the bottom of the edit window. Events created by ...

There is no guaranteed way to do this via Facebook, unfortunately. You can infer some things about RSVP order via the guest list, but you have to realize a few things: This is unreliable, since Facebook has made no promise that it works this way (this is simply my own observation), and Facebook changes how its site works all the time. There is no ...

As far as I know, this can only be done for Events created within the context of your personal account, where Facebook allows you to control various aspects of Privacy. On the other hand, it cannot be done for Events created within the context of a Page, because Pages are inherently public entities, and thus items such as Events, Photos, or Posts cannot be ...

Just figured this out! First option... you can always just simply block the person, but then you will not be able to access the pages for any event they organize at all, even if you have the link for it. I didn't like this option. Second option... Go to your Events page and look at it in list view, not calendar view. Find one event of the person you want ...

I could imagine that you can keep a list of all recipients and respondents. Any recipient not in the respondents list could be marked to receive a notification if they are still not on that list X amount of days before the event takes place. This assumes that the respondents are a subset of the recipients. Here's a rough idea of how the pseudo... Pseudo: ...

No, there isn't a direct link to a standalone page to create a new Facebook event. That "Create" button is only designed to create that overlay you would have seen, and never take you to a page where you would fill in the event details.

There is no direct way to find common attendees. But you can use some tools and export the guest list of Facebook events. Then compare both list to get common attendees. There are some tools to export the guest list: evu.li (Exports to CSV) Attendium

Yes, but not directly from Facebook and without the RSVP-on-Facebook Function. There are three possible workarounds: On the event-detail-page, on the right side under the cover, press the menu-button (···) next to the invite-button. Choose "Export Event" and you will download an ics-file (this is an iCalender-file). Then you could write your ...

It turns out that it is relatively easy, as long as you remember one thing that Facebook does not mention: Use Facebook as your personal you! Summarizing all steps: Use the full desktop interface, no app Create the event, published or not Make sure to use Facebook as your personal you: click the down triangle at the top right and click your human name, ...

jobjorn - Thanks for this great piece of code and instructions. Did the job for me but for one small tweak. Problem: some of my Facebook events had no endtime and the output of the script wouldn't import into google calendar (even though it worked fine with iCal). The empty DTEND: values was the issue. Solved by adding an test for an empty end_time value ...
