The best way to discover Facebook events with Windows Phone

Why ? It's pretty good on Xbox already, it's coming for the one and it's perfect on Windows PC... I don't want it on Windows Phone

Can someone please answer my question about changing your FB pic using the ME tile... Is it a bug that's preventing it from updating? It just updates the outlook photo and leaves the FB photo as is. Any help?
. Thanks!

Oh nooo.. Are you serious??? That sucks.. So the only way to change my profile pic is by using a laptop??
(I have no idea how you change it using the FB app... )

In 8.1 you can now select the social network you want to show the photo of. Before, it took the latest photo you uploaded on any network which was annoying. Now you can manually choose... Which I love. You can't change your FB pic from here anymore though.

I'd really like to be able to edit things like the Description for events I am an admin of in Facebook using an app.

It's a pretty rare problem, but we are working on it. Please, submit an error ticket thru the Help screen (within the app), if this bug will continue to appear.

Its ok, fixed after opening and closing the app several times, now loads almost instantly on the main menu,i have to say it's one of the best well done apps i stumbled upon in a while, I'm very happy with the effort you put on that app, people like you make windows phone platform shine,i hope you keep up the good work you got five stars from me mate

I'll have to try this. Im wanting to use my WP calendar like I use to with WP8, but the new calendar is showing multiple FB entries for the same event and after declining, wont go away. Use to be able to see all the invited people too and specifics in the calendar. now its all unplugged.

Im bumming from all this. :(

Does it take a while to populate events? It linked my account, but isn't showing anything. When I search for events its only showing 3 in my city over the next few months (which is definitely wrong).

Yes, the app does not scan the whole Facebook to collect all possible events at once. It is almost impossible to do it so. The app is filling up with new events with every user, joining it, piece after piece. But it doing it pretty fast, even if a small number of people from your city will install it.

No, if you're going on these private events. But it is possible, that your events are not fully fit to the current "event quality" policy, that applyed in the app (i.e. event has picture, description, address and so on). These restrictions helping us to keep our event base clean from poorly represented events and other garbage, but also may lead to the situation, when not all of your events will be available within the app. For now, we are collecting additional data and working on improvement. I think, the fix will be ready in a few weeks.

Right on, thanks for your replies. The specific types of events are private ones from groups im in, an example is: my soccer team creates events for each game with the location and whatnot, but rarely is there a photo. Its a nice, aesthetically pleasing app and really like the idea. I will continue using it and hopefully a future update makes it a bit more useable for me.

Not true! When you joining the app, you get access to the whole app's event database (more than 100k events worldwide at the moment and growing fast) and to your Facebook friends' events and sharing options. Yes, your local events' coverage depends on how many users from your city joined to the app, but it is not only possible scenario to using it. If there only a few events in your local area, you still can get a profit from travelling with the app and finding exciting events in your trip :)
