An event, a networking gathering, open house, fundraiser, or class is, by nature, a social affair. People attend events to connect, interact, and share with their peers. As far back as I can remember, events have always been more fun when I know people or bring others along with me because I know they will make the event a blast. An event can really be any social gathering centered on a specific topic. Unfortunately, the entire process of providing friends with information about the events you want them to attend is too often a headache.
Social Media often seems like the best way to remedy this problem, but often the event was not submitted through any social media platform or your friends aren’t on that particular social network. Then we go back forth via SMS or email, passing on whatever information I can about the event – time, place, description, ticket price, etc. At the end of the day, I still have to call all those who seemed like they were interested to confirm that they are, in fact, going to be there. Then, the shuffle to figure out when and where we’ll meet is the next challenge. After all this work and confusion, the event is the best part because we usually have a blast!
