Facebook Users Automatically Checked In To Events They RSVPed Yes To

A reader tipped us off that Facebook is automatically checking in users at events that they RSVPed they would attend.

The social network is also generating stories reflecting those check-ins on users’ walls and news feeds.

Facebook has been gradually overhauling its events feature, launching a redesign last month in which users can choose between viewing events in calendar or list format, which followed the social network’s move in June to allow users to export events to users’ calendars and introduction of a revamped gear menu, as well as a test by the social network, also in June, of notifications alerting event organizers when their invites were declined.

Readers: Have you seen stories on your walls or news feeds on check-ins at events you RSVPed yes to?
