Why can't you use Meetup for existing groups and also use Facebook as a mechanism organize members for new groups and associated events?

What's wrong with using Google+'s events functionality?  Almost everyone with an Android and everyone with hosting through Google, is on YouTube or a gmail account has this.

Meetup is a nice tool to organize local groups. However the cost is expensive for individuals to start a Meetup group. I'm wondering if we can get some corporate sponsor to help offset the cost of establishing local communities. This is a not so subtle hint for all the corporations that make money off OSM!
