No single application will replace the connected events on Facebook, but when we have the chance, it’s possible to use alternative solutions.
- Mobilizon: a free and federated tool to get events off Facebook, still in active development (website).
- Meetup: a popular platform to discover and organize events (website).
- Eventbrite a well-known platform to discover and organize events (website).
As an organizer, we can simply send out invitations to our contacts (by email for example) or use an app like Paperless Posts Invitations.
To gather our friends’ availability, we can use a serice like Doodle (or a libre solution like Framadate or Kyèla).
To keep an eye on the cultural calendars, it is easy to subscribe directly to our favourite rooms (through their website, newsletter, or seasonal programs by mail).
