It’s already pretty darn easy to sign up to attend an event on Eventbrite, but I have to admit that there are still times when I grumble about having to fill out a short form. And if you’re an event organizer, you probably want to eliminate any obstacles for potential attendees. That’s why Eventbrite is starting to roll out an even faster sign-up process.
Using the new one-click sign-up process, you can just hit the “Sign up with Facebook” button, and Eventbrite will automatically pull in your name and email address from your Facebook account, so you don’t have to enter the information yourself. (You’ll have to log in to Facebook if you haven’t already, which would require more than one click, but hey, a one-click experience is possible, and either way it’s quick and easy.) And if you don’t want to sign in through Facebook, you can also hit the “Sign up with email” button, in which case you just enter your name and email address.

Eventbrite believes that anyone can be an event organizer. That’s why they offer tools that make it easy to sell tickets to all kinds of events whether it’s a photography class or a sold-out concert, an inspiring conference or an air-guitar competition. With Eventbrite, organizers can create a customizable event page; spread the word with social media; collect money; and gain visibility into attendees and sales. Eventbrite is for anyone planning or attending an event. It empowers event organizers to...
