Why

There are many reasons why users may find events related to the current event useful:

  • Additional events in a series (e.g. subsequent Homebrew Website Club meetups)
  • Events hosted by the same organization (e.g. IndieWebCamps)
  • Events with similar topics
  • Events immediately before or after the current event in the same venue

Update 2016-03-29:

  • Top right text link is ALL CAPS "SEE MORE"
  • confirmations now stay (no longer brief)
  • GONE: fade and replaced by another event

As of 2016-03-08:

Facebook events, e.g. https://www.facebook.com/events/1688323548049648/ typically show a "RELATED EVENTS" box in the right column:

Note the minimal RSVP links for "Interested" and "Going" underneath each of these events.

If you click one of the RSVP links, the mini event is overlaid with a brief confirmation (during which you have a moment to "Invite Friends" or "Share")

Then fades slowly and is replaced by another event!
