Looking for a smart way to organise and manage events? Community Meets helps you connect with your audience, community or members. Combining a simple and easy to use event planning interface, fully integrated with your existing social accounts, and with a focus on local communities, we make it easy for you to meet, socialise and connect with like-minded people in your community and beyond. Whether your the person behind the event, or the type that just loves to participate, Community Meets has something for you! Posting an Event Here's the part where we get down to the nitty-gritty! At Community Meets, We want to reflect your needs, and we understand that those can be different depending on your end goals, your business, and because of a whole host of other factors.  So we provide several options when it comes to getting started, which we outline here. 1. Interest Groups These pages are perfect for rallying a group of people around an interest or hobby. By choosing to Start a Group, you will have access to powerful tools that will help you to establish a new group, manage an existing group, and create all sorts of amazing events for your members. We've made it easy to import and manage existing contacts, membership lists, to share admin duties with other people, post updates and changes and to promote across social media. Inviting people is a cinch: group members are usually automatically invited, and on-page invite and share tools make it easy to spread the word and get others on-board. If you are worried about using technology and everything being too complicated, don't worry because we explain everything step-by-step. For a full list of page features, visit our learn more page.

Community Meets Takes Off!

After several years of planning and development, Community Meets finally goes live! It's been an epic journey, inspired by our desire to connect people, face-to-face, through the magic of activities. While most other social networks are designed to keep you glued to the screen, clicking, liking, sharing, that's not us! Community Meets focuses on making it easy to unite people and join together, whether it be for rallying behind a cause and mission or for point of interest. If you’re someone who loves to organise an event, or the type that enjoys to participate, Community Meets has something for you. How We Got Started: The Inside Scoop In the past, trains were good for getting from A to B, once in a fog of romantic steam and whistles. The kernel of the idea came when the founder of Community Meets noticed that people were commuting on public transport without speaking to one another, glued to screens of various descriptions and isolated from the world by earphones. True and observable by everybody as well as backed up by study after study, article after article –  and it's not healthy! Statistics indicate that people are increasingly turning to their phones in social situations and in doing so, conveying to others an apparent boredom with conversation and losing the art of mannerly communication. It can be seen in restaurants amongst patrons sitting opposite one another sharing a meal. Thankfully, these same stats reveal a majority seem to agree that this behaviour is not cool. The Solution People seem to be realising that technology is a tool that can be used or abused. We can allow it to control us or we can control it, but only in doing the latter, can it open a world of possibilities. Community Meets understands this. Community Meets uses the internet to [...]

Building Community Spirit

Building community spirit isn't so hard. It just takes one small step outside your door! So while it's possible to connect with people from Tokyo to Timbucktoo, for many of us, we are losing our grip locally? How active are you within your community, do you take the time to connect with people, make new friends, to do the things you really love? Making a difference shouldn't be hard work, it should be an extension of who you are and the things you're passionate about. By getting out and about and joining in, we can all make a difference. Whether your the person behind the event, or the type that just loved to participate, it doesn't matter, simply do more of the things you love and everyone benefits. Why We Need One Another! Feeling part of any clan or kin means that difficulties become easier to manage and joys are amplified through being shared with other people. What is more, a strong social scene on your doorstep allows you to learn new skills, develop your network, and contribute to the greater good. And we absolutely love that sort of stuff here. I live in a cool working class neighbourhood where there is a wide range of community initiatives, with free exhibitions,  workshops and classes. Everybody pulls together and creating your own event is actively encouraged. All it takes is getting started. People are receptive to good ideas and socialising! Whether its a regular group activity, such as weekly walk or bike ride, or local farmers market, by organising an event, you'll have the opportunity to inspire others in your community. All Together Now At Community Meets, our mission is connecting like-minded people though the magic of activities. "Alone we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” – [...]
