Add an Event Gadget to your Site

Google announced a new way to promote and get people to sign up for events online via Google Friend Connect.

Setting up an event is pretty easy: Just enter basic details, i.e. time & location, than Google will generate code which you can post to your site. A Google Map showing the event's location is automatically embedded. When people visit your site, they’ll see an event description and a button asking them whether they want to attend. They can sign in using Friend Connect (with a Google, Yahoo, AIM, or OpenID account) and RSVP. The advantage here is that the people see the event and sign up right on your website, rather than visiting another event service like Facebook or Evite. Furtheremore, when a Google user signs up for an event, it’s automatically transferred to their Google Calendar! Of course, that doesn't mean you should limit yourself to physical events -- host a virtual meet-up or "webinar" and share all of the important dial in codes through the event gadget.
