Social media has redefined our world and it has brought a ton of benefit to us. Most people know social media as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram but the online community is much larger than those few platforms. Meetup is an innovative application that aims to bring people together through the power of communication and similar interests. It’s much different than your average social media app. Instead of socializing on the internet, Meetup makes socializing with similar minded people in real life. Now available in a generous list of countries, Meetup can be downloaded for free on both Android and iOS devices.
Meetup is an app that makes communication with people who share your interest a reality. While it’s great to chat with people who love the things you love over text messages, meeting in real life and socializing face to face is something completely different and an inherent need for every individual. Meetup initiates this communication through its well-designed app but the rest of the socializing happens out of your smart devices.
To make use of the Meetup service, you need to create an account and give the app permissions to your location. The app then finds out all of the meet-up groups near you or in the city that you can participate in. Alternatively, you can create your own group as well.
On Meetup, each activity or event is designated a specific group. You can find groups on mentoring, sports, technology, adventure and so much more – the list is endless. You can also browse the most trending events or meet-up groups around you and take part in them as well.
Meetup is a wonderful platform to bring people together, find people who share your interests, make new friends, and encourage healthy social activities. You can also organize a meetup yourself and invite people to join it. Each event or group shows the number of participants in the activity which gives you a good idea of how big the meet-up will be.
In terms of the app design, nothing but good can be said about it. Meetup is designed to perfection with a stunning and modern app design, easy navigation and a lot of options to explore.
Moving around the app is fairly simple and nothing too perplexing happens around in the design itself. There’s also an incredibly intelligent search filter in the app that you can use to find out meet up groups in a more filtered way. You can filter these searches according to your hobbies and interest, dates, locations and more.
Meetup provides a terrific opportunity to those who are seeking to learn more in the skill of their interest. Not only do these meet ups comprise of like-minded people that share a particular hobby but this platform is also a great way to educate yourself in certain fields. It can also help you make important life and career choices through communicating with other people in the meet up group as well as help you hone your passion and skill in a certain area.
Meetup has a lot of good things to offer and it gives us a healthy real-life socializing opportunity. However there have been reports of the app failing when it comes to notification alerts. In addition, you also need to pay to organize an event which some users of the app believe is unfair.
