It’s no secret that friends often share interests — whether you love comedy shows or beer festivals, chances are you’ve got some friends who love them too. So if a few of your pals sign up for an event that’s right up your alley, it seems like our civic duty to give you a quick heads up so you can join them, right? Lucky for you, we’re doing just that.

If you’ve connected your Facebook account to Eventbrite, you may have received an email that tells you immediately when two or more of your Facebook friends sign up for an event. These emails have been opened at a very high rate, and it’s clear that people want to know what their friends are up to, whether it’s to learn about an interesting event or just to make sure they don’t miss out on a fun time.

Some event organizers have sold 20%, 30% or even more of their tickets and registrations as a direct result of these emails — which promote their event for free!
