MacVoices #14214: Maria Langer Gets You Up and Running with Meetup

The latest release from Maria Langer is the new course, Up and Running with Meetup , on lynda.com. You might think Meetup is simple – someone posts a get together and people get together. Maria explains why there is so much more power to Meetup for both users and organizers, including feature sets that not everyone takes advantage of. Talking as an author, Meetup user and Meetup organizer, Maria takes us through the process, paying special attention to the privacy and security issues that are so important in today’s world. Find out how you can connect with people you have something in common with on Meetup.
