The ability to send a message to your guest list is no longer available, but you can still use your event’s Wall to get in touch with the people you’ve invited to your event. This will keep all of your event info in one place, so anyone who joins can see these extra details. Source

Thanks. But, if anyone has notifications turned off, they don’t necessarily see the update. :(

This is why FB is becoming so extremely annoying. I asked a question the other day about why is it so confusing. Someone wrote something about taking time to read the tutorials. Who has time to read tutorials? Do we need tutorials for Fluther?

@JLeslie You are singing to the choir. There must be a reason why the FB gods decided to make this change. I just don’t know what it is.

@jca I would love a tutorial for Fluther and have stated this on several occasions. While the site is fairly basic, the information needed in order to interact without getting questions immediately sent into moderation are spread out. Just scrolling through the Meta section should make this obvious.

FB is a whole other matter. The amount of time that it would take to go through a tutorial in order to understand the basic workings, as well as all of the many features available but not always used, would take a painfully long time. This is why FB relies on their their help site to guide members through their specific needs. The tutorials that FB creates are an introduction to changes to existing members.
