I was very fortunate to have come across Allurez.com. I have always been a bit skeptical about buying any type of jewelry online. They made the process very easy and streamlined. I def recommend them.

I discovered meetup.com in 2011 after I was given permission by my martial arts instructor to teach, so long as I didn't charge for it. The good about hosting a meetup is that people will find you and show up. I met some very interesting people through the years, both in SF and LA. The attendance varied significantly based on the location; not exactly different in SF and LA, but based on the specific location; say, one park at 10am on a Saturday might get 12 people to show up, where's a similar park a mile south might get 2. So a little experimenting is required. I was somewhat worried what kind of folks would show up, as this is basically the craigslist of community events, but I met mostly really good folks, two of whom have become really close friends of mine. As a host, there are fees, and those fees have increased fairly significantly over the past few years, although if you have at least a few people attending your meetups you can easily get back the fees if everyone chips in a few bucks. I moved away from meetup recently though, as I tried hosting some other events that were poorly attended (meditation and acting were hit and miss, and a book club wasn't attended at all). I tried getting meetup to lower my dues but after lowering it one time, they wouldn't do it again. I get it. All in all I would recommend this, as it's generally free for folks who aren't hosts (some groups do charge), and you can find a meetup for what you are looking to do/learn.

There are some great things about Yelp. We use them when selecting a restaurant to go to in an area we aren't familiar with. However, and I'm not sure anything can be done about this, I get irritated when some yelper is having a bad day or doesn't like the waiter's haircut, or even has a bad experience but it is just one isolated experience, and they go off with a 1-star review. Maybe there is an algorithm that could be set to move the extreme ratings (all caps, tons of exclamation points, etc) but then that could be biasing the reviews and would likely not go over well. From the perspective of the yelper, I never really got into it. I've left a handful of reviews, generally when asked by a business owner or when I've been given some sort of coupon or discount for leaving a yelp review, but I found the lack of a distinct community and engagement to be pretty boring.

It is trying to cram too many things together.

Great job about connecting people. I especially like the fact that you can share whatever you are going through in real time, but Facebook needs to improve on its data protection especially from 3rd parties.
