MeetUp: What’s Up with This?

I hadn’t been over to MeetUp.com in a few months even though I get the annoyingmeetup.gif emails from when I joined the site earlier this year telling me about some group wanting me to join them, or wants a Golf MeetUp in Addison, or a Sushi MeetUp in Addison…or the many notices of the few groups I am a member of but never went to a MeetUp.

What I find about MeetUp.com as site is unsettling is that they want you to pay to be a facilitator of the ‘MeetUp’ as they call them. From $20 to $30 a month you get the privilege of sending out emails that go out to all of the members and then hear every excuse in the book on why they can’t come to the MeetUp you scheduled.

I guess if you were writing the book that everyone says they want to write…All of The Excuses People Have’,

I guess paying MeetUp for you to produce traffic to their advertisers is a way to do it…wait a minute, did I say you were paying them for you to drive traffic to their advertisers??? Well I guess I did and now you know why Mr Business Golf will not be over at MeetUp…

OH, well, MeetUp will probably be one of the sites to takea a dive when Web 2.0 comes around.
