Meetup enables people with shared interests to find each other online and form lasting, influential community groups that regularly meet face to face. By providing visibility into a variety of special interest communities, and encouraging trust amongst members, Meetup provides diverse opportunities for social and political engagement.
Through its website, Meetup invites individuals to connect and self-organize. Groups may form to share personal interests, such as language learning and pets, or they may form around political interests and social action campaigns. Users can search by topic for local groups and then convert their interest into action by joining and attending in-person meetings.
