I’m asking a question on facebook to all the youth leaders out there who use facebook for advertising youth events.

What percentage difference do you experience between the numer of students who click “attending” before an event versus how many actually show up? I want to see if there is an average or if there is a chance to see how people are succeeding at it. You can answer the¬†question here.

Here’s an example scenario:¬†Billy sets up an event page for his dodgeball tournament. 30 students click that they are attending. On the day of the event 40 students show up. This happens all the time. He knows he can expect about a 30% increase from his event clicks.

    The “rewards” dealy doesn’t seem to be functional… not seeing the postings pop up nor can I click on the rewards thing and see the summary. Just saying that it seems to have crapped itself in some form or fashion… or maybe it’s just me.

    i’ve found that tons of students put “maybe” whether they’re coming or not. if they put no, forget it. if they put maybe, there’s a 30% chance. if they put yes, there’s maybe a 75% chance, but tons of kids just don’t answer.

    Yeah, same problem here. Every one is so non-committal (myself included). I rarely have anyone answer my Event posts. It definitely helps attendance when they so though and gives me some insight as to what they do and do not get excited about.
