    Does anyone know how to bypass this and invite a whole friends list (5,000) like the good old days. Ive heard there is a way to hack it and get your invites across. This is for "Events" that are created.

    500? I got knocked down to 50 max invites back in March like a lot of people. I run weekly events for major nightclubs that have globally recognized talent. I could have 20-50 events posted on my FB page at any given time. It doesn't matter. Facebook tailors their search algorithms to those that pay the big money for advertising. ..Which in MY experience, doesn't have a great ROI in my particular large market metro area.

    I have tested 100s of different advertising campaigns for different events throughout the year, and overall the end result is typically the same. Whether I spend $5, $100, $500, it doesn't matter. Profit margin stays near the mean if I spend $0 and just share the event page in different targeted groups. Someone could come in here and argue that the money spent on FB ads will help you reach clients that you wouldn't normally have. In my field, all that has done is created more SPAMMED Likes, RSVPs, and Friend Requests from children in the Philippines or people selling $25 Oakleys.

    Their "reach" numbers are extremely exaggerated and inorganic. The market is too saturated(unless you're hosting an event with Lil Wayne, who sells himself). My events typically go viral in my market if they are posted a few months in advance - I find this method better. If you have bookings set in stone way in advance, get your Flyer/cover art finished and post it as soon as you can. That's where I've found the most success.

    I took the assumption that this is music related. But, whatever it is, if you slowly build your face and your brand - the likes will continue to roll in naturally.
