Platforms for connecting
Platforms for connecting. This includes social networking sites Facebook, Orkut and Bebo as well as websites which aim to connect people together in real life for particular causes. One example of this is Landshare, a new website which connects people who want to grow fruit and vegetables with those who have the land on which to grow it. They also provide people with the advice and information they need to grow fruit and vegetables. Another example is Meetup, an online platform which enables people to organise meetings and events. There are thousands of meet ups across the world taking part in a range of activities, from yoga and language lessons to campaigning and networking. One of these meet ups is MiniBar, an event which takes place every month in London to connect start ups, designers, programmers and funders.
