[Talk-us] Local user groups

It's important to remember that meetup.com is selling two services in one:
their calendaring and organization software, and listing on their site which
involves publicity with their substantial list of members for which they
have both locations and interests. The first one is easy to reproduce, the
second one is not, and is frankly more important for OSM groups getting
started in an area where they want to find people interested.

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