Facebook Adds Buy Tickets Button in Event Pages

by Brandon Russell | February 11, 2013


Facebook is making our itchy trigger fingers more susceptible to impulse clicks, with a new “Buy Tickets” button emblazoned in event pages.

The social conglomerate confirmed that instead of having a link to a third-party ticket seller, that area will now entice users with a button. It doesn’t sound like an enormous change, but that small switch will no doubt affect a psychology in click happy Facebook users. Or at least that’s the hope. Everything seems to be live in the Netherlands and Israel, so the new switch is confined to only a specific audience. It’ll make going to shows with your friends that much easier.
