You’re on Facebook for the brands, right? A new button allows you to get notifications whenever your favorite brand/musician/page is hosting an event near you, so that you don’t miss out.
A new section shown in the events dashboard allows you to subscribe to pages to receive notifications when there’s an event hosted by the page near your location.
The notifications appear in a similar way to what you’d see if a friend invited you to an event.
