meetUp.com is an online social networking portal that facilitates offline group meetings in various localities around the world. Meetup allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest, such as politics, books, games, movies, health, pets, careers or hobbies. Meetup, Inc. is based in New York City. It was co-founded in 2002 by Scott Heiferman and Matt Meeker.

Users enter their city or their postal code and tag the topic they want to meet about. The website/app helps them locate a group to arrange a place and time to meet. Topic listings are also available for users who only enter a location.

Meetup receives revenue by charging fees to organizers of groups. Currently US$9.99/month for their basic plan, which includes max. 4 organizers and max. 50 members. The unlimited pricing starts at US$14.99/month.

The website and associated app also allow users to contact meetup group members through a messaging platform and comments left on individual event listings. After each event and email is shared that allows users to click "Good to see you" and establish further connection with group members.
