Characteristics to take into account when publishing Events:
When publishing events, it is vitally important for the creator to know how to differentiate between what is considered an event and what is not:
The previous example denotes an event open to the general public, whether paid or free, it should be considered that an event is NOT an activity that is only directed to a group of selected people.
The previous example indicates that the public to which the activity is directed is specific, but it is not a closed or private event.
Examples of activities that are NOT events:
The previous example is not an event, because it is an activity that is repeated without an end date, there are recurring events such as workshops and courses, made up of two or more sessions, having a start date and an end date.
For the publication of classes, workshops, practices, presentations, trainings and other continuous activities without an end date, we recommend the creation of an official page that invites these activities, using tags such as: #classes #work #course #training #teaching # practice, among others.
The example above shows a specific invitation from a group of people to a private party, it is not considered an event for publication in the Lokkal directory.
Lokkal reserves the right to refuse, restrict, eliminate, prevent the publication of any content whatsoever. This includes, but is not limited to, photos, videos, texts, comments, posts, event, profiles, pages, map listings... that Lokkal considers inappropriate.
