How to send a message to a Facebook event

After you create a Facebook event, you can communicate with your guests on the event page wall, which functions much like the wall on a person's profile. If guests don't visit the event's page, however, they may not notice your message. Send a private message instead, and the message recipients will get a notification on their Facebook home page. Once your event reaches 5,000 invitees, you won't be able to send out messages and must communicate using the event's wall.
