Is Facebook a Better Evite?
In my own network I've noticed more and more people rely on Facebook to invite people to events. Most people are already signed up for Facebook, and if they're not you can send an invitation to their person's email address.
The big advantage of Facebook is that you don't need to sign up for a new account on a new website. Instead, just use the Facebook account you already have. You can also customize your Facebook event with a picture and location, and your guests can talk to each other in the event's timeline.
