Facebook Inc. on Oct. 7 released a new app called Events from Facebook, which users can use to keep up with nearby events.
Users who open the app can see new events their friends on the social media site are interested in, as well as recently announced events by the Pages they have liked, and updates from events that they have already connected to.
Users can also browse through event recommendations. The recommendations are based on the time, location and interests of the users. Currently, Events is available on Apple Inc.'s iPhone. The app will be released soon for Alphabet Inc.-owned Google Inc.'s Android.
