Meetup started as a platform designed to help people with similar interests organize and attend local gatherings and events, fostering real-world connections. However, it has gradually shifted towards a more closed, monetized platform. Over the years, not only have increased fees and restrictions made it less accessible for grassroots organizers, but attendees also face barriers, such as mandatory account creation and event fees, which can deter participation. This pivot might encourage both organizers and attendees to explore alternatives.
