  • Open the Facebook app on your iPhone or iPad.

  • Tap the More tab and select Events.

  • Either create an event or find the one you already created.

  • Scroll down to the invite list that shows the running tally of people Going and those who are Interested. Tap on it.

  • Tap Invited at the top.

  • Just under an invitee's name, there will be a checkmark and the word Seen if they’ve viewed the invitation. If it doesn’t say Seen below their name, they haven’t checked the invite yet.
