Facebook provides an easy platform for organizing parties with its events function. Planning an event takes just a few minutes, and you can invite just a few people or your entire friend list. Enter the date, time and other pertinent details to let your friends know where to show up. Friends can RSVP to your event right on the site. While you no longer can edit past events, it is quite easy to view them.

Step 1

Click on "Events" from your Facebook homepage. The link is located on the left side of the page just under the thumbnail of your profile picture.

Step 2

Click on the "Past Events" link on the "Events" page. The link is located in the left-hand column.

Scroll down the page to view events -- events are listed in chronological order, with the newest first. Use the right-facing arrow at the bottom of the page to navigate back to older events.


  • You can view past events, but you won't be able to edit information such as time and date in the posting once the event has occurred.
