This simple but sophisticated app is the shortest route to fun, no matter what your interests might be, but be aware of potential privacy pitfalls. After connecting to your Facebook account, the app requests information such as where you are and what kinds of events you enjoy. Then, from a search screen, you can filter by event category and date. A scrollable list of things that match your criteria appears and gives you all the information you need to attend the event, including photos of the venue. You can discuss the event or ask questions of the community in a message thread, share the event with friends, and even check out similar events suggested by the app. One downside to the app is that though your Facebook friends can see when you're attending an event, there's no way to create your own events in the app or directly invite friends to an event you're attending. Also, depending on a teen's Facebook friends and account settings, it may not be a great idea to broadcast potential locations and times. Still, when it comes to the fastest route to impromptu fun, Events From Facebook is efficient and convenient.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
