Users can login to the MIT Events Calendar with social media options: Facebook or Twitter. If you choose to not login through the social media options, you will still be able to share events on Facebook and Twitter. All event pages have built-in share methods that will display on the left side of the landing page.
- Once you have linked your Facebook account to your profile, you can login with either Touchstone or your Facebook account. The calendar platform will know you're the same person.
Note: When connecting to Facebook, it must be an account and not a page.
- If you have your Facebook account linked, you will be prompted asking if you want to promote an event on Facebook when I’m interested button is clicked. You can choose not to promote event.
- When creating events, Event Administrators can link their calendar events to a Facebook Event Page. This will pull the attendee RSVPs into the calendar and display them as People Interested for the event.
- If Facebook privacy settings are set to not publicly display an attendee attendance or activity. Then the attendee RSVP will not appear in the calendar.
Note: "I’m Interested" does not take the place of official ticketing as there is no cap on how many people can click “I’m Interested.” This helps organizers to gauge the interest level in an event and plan for likely attendees.
