Instagram Events have made organizing events a bit easier, especially for those whose friend groups are active on the platform. This feature, recently rolled out to Australian users, is Instagram’s equivalent to Facebook Events. Whether you want to plan a private gathering or a public event, Instagram Events offers a convenient way to create and manage your event.
To set up an event on Instagram, follow these steps:
1. Go to your profile page and tap the “+” sign in the top corner.
2. Tap on “Events.”
3. Provide a name, description, time, and location for your event. You can choose to make it public or private.
4. For private events, you can invite people directly and share the event link through direct messages or other platforms.
5. For public events, you can share it in your stories, send it via direct messages, or share the event link off-platform.
Once you have set up your event, invitees can RSVP their attendance, and you can create a private group chat for communication. If someone receives an external link invitation, they will have limited access to the event and will need to request access.
To keep track of your events, go back to your profile page, tap the three parallel bars for settings, and scroll down to find the “Events” tab. Here, you will see a list of events you are hosting or attending, along with the option to discover nearby events or those matching your interests.
Organizing an event can be challenging, especially when it comes to finding a suitable date and time. However, with Instagram Events, managing and promoting your event becomes a little bit easier. Good luck with your event planning!
