• When an organizer schedules a new Meetup event, a photo album for that Meetup is created automatically. All group members can add photos to Meetup albums and can tag other group members in the photos.

    If a member has been tagged in a photo and prefers to remove the tag, they’re welcome to do so.

    Note: It is not currently possible to tag or untag photos from the Android or iOS apps or from the Mobile website. Members can only tag others and untag themselves from the Desktop website.

    To tag a member in a photo:

    1. Go to the Meetup group’s homepage
    2. Select Photos and choose the desired album
    3. Select the photo you want to tag someone in
    4. Click Tag this photo
    5. Click on individuals’ faces and type their name into the text box
    6. Click Done to save your changes

    To untag yourself from a photo:

    1. Go to your group profile for the Meetup group and select Tagged Photos under your profile photo (You can also go directly to the album if you know which photos you’re tagged in).
    2. Find the photo you want to be untagged from and click Edit tags next to your name
    3. Under “In this photo” click the x next to your name and then click the x next to your face to confirm the removal

  • More socially acceptable than a megaphone in a public space, and probably more effective: make your Meetup easy to find by sharing your location privately with other members when you arrive.

    To do this, start at your Meetup Messages on the Android or iOS app:

    Android App

    1. Tap the Messages tab.
    2. Start a new message by tapping the icon.
    3. Enter the names of the members you want to receive your location.
    4. Tap the pin icon to the left of the text box.
    5. Tap Share location to send your location.

    iOS App

    1. Tap the Messages tab.
    2. Start a new message by tapping the icon.
    3. Enter the names of the members you want to receive your location then tap Done.
    4. Tap the pin icon to the left of the text box.
    5. Tap Share to send your location.

    When you share your location, recipients will see the following:

    sharemylocation.jpg

    Just like any Meetup message, only those members you choose will be able to see your shared location.

    Important Note about Group Conversations: if you share your location in a group conversation, anyone who joins the conversation later will still be able to see your shared location on the map.

    For your safety, it’s best to avoid using this tool when you are in a private location such as your home or workplace.

    How do I share my location?
  • Note: If you change the language on your account from desktop or mobile web, it will not change the settings on your Meetup app.

    We want Meetup to speak your language. Literally.

    Meetup is available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, Dutch, Thai, Turkish, and Russian.

    To change the language on your account:

     

    Desktop & Mobile Web

    1. Log in to your account
    2. Click on your circular profile icon
    3. Select Settings
    4. Select the General tab
    5. Click edit beside your current language
    6. Select your language preference
    7. Click Save

    Note: If you’re not logged in, you will still see different language options available in the drop-down menu. But changing the language from that view, without logging in, will not update your account settings.

     

    Android & iOS App

    The language of your Meetup app is determined by the default language set on your mobile device. If your device is set to a language that is not currently supported by Meetup, English will be used as your account language.

    To learn more about changing the language of your mobile device, visit Apple support and Google support.

  • There are all kinds of Meetup groups out there, and not all of them are ones you want to broadcast to the world. We get that, and it’s why we allow you to hide your list of Meetup groups from showing on your profile page.

    Keep in mind, your membership in a Meetup group may still be public, depending on the settings chosen by the Meetup organizer. If you’re interested, you can learn more about Meetup group visibility.  

    To hide your list of Meetup groups on your profile:

    1. Go to any of your Meetup group pages
    2. Click My profile

    In the column listing your Meetup groups, click Hide my Meetup groups from others

  • Note: It’s currently only possible to add or edit your interests from your desktop and mobile web browser.

    Adding interests to your profile helps us recommend Meetup groups we think you’ll love. We never want to limit you in pursuing your passions or trying new things (quite the opposite, in fact), so we allow you to add as many interests as you’d like.

    By default, your interests are displayed on your Meetup profile and on your individual Meetup group profiles. You can hide your interests from your Meetup profile if you don’t want them to be visible to others. 

    To edit your interests on desktop:

    1. Go to your General Account Settings
    2. Scroll down to Add interests
    3. Select a suggested interest, or search for an interest by typing it into the search box to add it to your profile

    To remove an interest on Desktop & Mobile Web, tap on the X icon next to the interest.

    How do I edit my interests?
    1. Note: It’s currently only possible to change your account name via your desktop web browser and the mobile Meetup apps.

  • Note: It is not currently possible to change your main profile photo via mobile web browser.

    Once you create an account, you can add a main profile photo, which will be your default photo for any Meetup groups you join. If you change your main profile photo after joining one or more Meetup groups, your profile photo for those individual Meetup groups will not automatically be updated.

    You can set a unique and individual profile photo for each of your Meetup group profiles. This is a great way to introduce yourself to your fellow Meetup members, with a specific photo to tell them who you are and what you're about. 

    The recommended ratio for any profile photo is 1:1, for example a square 200px by 200px. Photos uploaded to Meetup must be in JPEG, PNG, or un-animated GIF format and under 10MB.

If you don’t see the verification email in your inbox, check your spam and trash folders.

    How do I change my email address?
  • When you sign up for Meetup or log into your existing Meetup account with Facebook, your Facebook account automatically connects to your Meetup account—whether you register from the Desktop website, Mobile website, or Meetup apps. When you connect your Facebook account, you will be sharing your activity with your Facebook friends. You can change this setting from the Desktop website.

    Connecting your Meetup account to your Facebook account:
    - Lets you log into Meetup through Facebook
    - Makes it easy to share Meetups
    - Allows you to see the activity of your Facebook friends on Meetup
    - Allows us to notify your Facebook friends when you join a new Meetup group or RSVP to an upcoming event. 
    Note: Your Facebook friends will not be told about private groups you join or private events you RSVP to.

    Facebook and Meetup accounts are automatically connected when you register for Meetup or log in through Facebook. When your Facebook account and Meetup account are connected, we may collect and use your friends list, public profile information, and email address according to our Privacy Policy.  We won't post to Facebook unless you ask us to do so, and you can disconnect from Facebook any time you'd like.

    It's currently only possible to connect your Facebook account and Meetup account on Desktop Web. To do so: 
    - Click on your Profile icon in the upper right hand corner
    - Select Settings from the dropdown menu
    - Scroll down to Your Facebook Settings and click Connect with Facebook
    - Click Allow on the popup

    You can remove the connection between Facebook and Meetup by following the same steps.

    If you receive an error message while trying to link your accounts, please contact us by clicking 'Still need help?' below. Please include a link to your Facebook profile.

    Note: You can only connect a personal Facebook account to Meetup. You can't link a Meetup account to a Facebook group or page. It must be connected to a personal Facebook account.

    Connecting your Facebook and Meetup accounts is not the same as simply displaying a link to your Facebook profile on your Meetup profile. If you'd only like to link to your Facebook account, you can find more information here.
