With so many people using the social network every day, creating Facebook events is a useful way to alert customers and employees to upcoming events, but what do you do if you accidentally invite your customers to an employee training session? Fortunately, Facebook has made it easy to uninvite people you have included by mistake. As long as you are the creator of the event or have access as a host, you can remove friends from the event with just a few clicks.

Log in to your Facebook account.

Click the "Events" button. If you have trouble finding it, type "Events" in the search field and select the Events app from the list of results.

Locate the event you need to edit in the list of upcoming events and click on its name.

Click the heading of the group of invited guests that includes the person you need to remove – either "Going," "Maybe," or "Invited." It will have a number in parenthesis, indicating the number of people in that group. This will open a dialog box with the full list of people in the group.

Click the X next to the name of the person you want to remove. A second dialog box will appear, asking if you're sure you want to delete her from the event. Click "Okay" to remove her.
