Great tip Suzanne! I see that I have really missed to use Facebook events.

I need to get going on this one.

Thanks, Olov

Yes, Facebook events,can really help a business maintain contact with the people who "Like" their page. One more important tip, is to make sure you write a comment,to welcome visitors to the event,so a person less familiar with Facebook will be able to readily add a comment.
