I just created a Facebook event and was stunned to discover that Facebook doesn’t allow for events that are purely online!

I had to enter Adelaide, Australia for an event taking place on the bloody internet.

I don’t think time zones are an excuse — if you’re hosting an online event with start and end times, surely you put up a time zone conversion tool so everyone gets the relative time?  So Facebook’s start and end times are pretty irrelevant to online events.  I get that they are supposed to be relative to the City/Town but methinks they need to shift mindset into online space a wee bit better…
