One morning this past December the crew of HOT95.7 was talking about event invites on Facebook. Most of them do not consider a Facebook invite a true invite to an event. They felt like it was a way to avoid hurt feelings. You send a Facebook invite, but then actually call / text those who you really want to come.
I actually disagree with this. Or maybe it's because when I create Facebook invites for an event I typically only send it to about 10 people in our friend circle. So I'm very specific with who I am clicking.
I feel like in this day and age a Facebook invite should be sufficient for anything other than, perhaps a wedding or huge anniversary party.
I have a handful of events I am planning this year & I've debated on how I wanted to invite people. Do I want to do Facebook events? Send out cute invitations? Make it formal with an RSVP card? Then I got curious to know what my peers thought. So I took it to Twitter and Facebook.
The gist of it. Most people actually do not consider a Facebook invite a real invite. I was a little shocked about that.
Now, if an event has hundreds of people invited, odds are I'm not going to attend anyway. That's just too many people and usually a waste of my time to attend. I'm not one to try and compete for the host's attention.
So this year, I may just be sending more snail mail invites out to our friends. Which could be a whole lot of fun to pick out / design (most likely have someone design) some great invitations!
What are your thoughts? Do you consider a FB invite a REAL invite?
