A common argument is that the Internet often alienates us more than it brings us together, but 'Meetup Everywhere,' an online platform that aims to physically bring people together, is trying to change that.

The Meetup Everywhere website describes a meetup as "a real-world gathering of people interested in the same thing. They use the internet to get off the internet." As a branch of 'Meetup Groups,' the difference is that Meetup Everywhere is for organizations, movements and companies to create communities about them, rather than started by individuals.
