Message from Instagram:

Instagrammers in cities all around the world will be meeting up in their hometowns for a Worldwide InstaMeet. Read more on our blog: http://goo.gl/d4yGS

------

Introducing an easy way for you to get together with Instagrammers in your area, no matter what part of the world you live in: Worldwide InstaMeets. On 24 March, Instagrammers in all different parts of the world will gather in their hometowns to meet other members of the Instagram community.

HOW'S IT WORK?

Just go to meetup.com/instagram to join your city's Instagram meetup group. Once some other folks in your area say they're interested, you can choose a location and meet. Someone can even volunteer to be the organizer to help move the process along.

WHAT WILL WE DO?

The goal of the Worldwide InstaMeet is simply to get together with other Instagrammers in your area. In Portland, @grether organized one of the very first Instameets. "Just get people in a social space (coffee shop, pub, restaurant) with their phones and start talking about this shot or that, this app or that," he says. That same approach has worked for Instameets in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, too.

If you're looking for more structure, consider organizing a photowalk, which Instagrammers in San Francisco and Bath, UK have already done (search for the #instameet tag). Or find an event in your area that fellow Instagrammers might be interested in. Just the other week, Instagrammers met up at the Apple Store in Manhattan to listen to @sionfullana's talk on iPhoneography.

SPREAD THE WORD

Once you've joined your city's meetup group, help spread the word to other Instagrammers in your area.

? Use the hashtag #instameet on Instagram and Twitter when posting about meetups

? Post a note to your followers letting them know about the Instagram meetup page

? Post a link to your city's meetup page on Facebook and Twitter; email the page to your friends

Talk about this Meetup

    Where is The Hive at 55, you say? It's just a few blocks from the 2/3/4/5/J/N/R/Z trains (you all have iPhones! Just put 55 Broad Street in your Maps app!).
    Once you're there at the front desk in the Lobby, just say you're going to the InstaMeet gathering at The Hive at 55, located on the 13th floor. Once you get out of the elevator, turn right and it's straight down the hallway. See you all there!!!

    *Presenters and Pizza* We would like some people to volunteer to present a few of your IG photos. We'll simply put them on the projector screen and you can talk about the photo (story behind it, app used, response you got). Simply email me briandifeo[at]gmail to volunteer. We'll also be ordering a few pizza pies! If you want to bring beverages they'd be much appreciated. Thanks!

      Looking forward to tonight! I haven't met anyone yet, I'm brand new! I'll be the quite shy one please come say hi, trying to break out of my shell. :)

    Really looking forward to this! And a thought... It seems like the InstaMeet would be a great way for a bunch of people to try out the new Color app that's in the midst of an insane media blitz today -- the app's all about sharing photos automatically, based on location. (I wrote about it a bunch at my blog, http://whatiseenow.com­.) Could be very meta: Using Color at an Instagram event, posting Instagram pics of people using another app... @allanhoffman

    Hey everyone! Looking forward to tonight's InstaMeet and meeting many of you for the first time!

    Just a reminder that pizza will be ordered for those that want some. If you do, please pitch in a few dollars. Also, please bring your own drinks! If you want to share some beers or soda, I'm sure it will be very appreciated. ;-)

      (A warning in advance - the app will always connect the first time, but sometimes has problems re-connecting if you leave the app. So if you want to request multiple songs or upload multiple photos, it's best to do so in one shot just in case...)

      Don't forget if you upload photos from tonight to InstaGram to tag them #InstaMeetNYC

      Can't wait to see you all!

      - Anton

      Check out Crumbs Bake Shop at 87 beaver street. There is a parking garage on beaver street right after the intersection with william street. There really is not a lot of street parking down near the Hive, though.

    So if the Meet starts at 7PM, do you think it may still be in full swing at 8PM? I may not be able to leave work until 8PM (Midtown) and would hate to show up really late and feel all weird O_o

    • brian difeo's Photo

      I think people will be here until 9pm, and there are places near by to grab a drink afterward.

      Great thank you Angeliki! I'm gonna try to make it.

  • Randi L Klein's Photo

    i think the walk ur talking about @angeliki is with josh on march 7th but no normal working person can meet on a weekday at 4pm...just dumb....as for the meetup it will be a great opportunity to meet peeps that love photography, share ideas, figure out some instagram stuff....looking forward to it.

    Posted by Randi L Klein March 5, 2011
    • Angeliki Jackson's Photo

      aw, dumb is a heavy word. Though admittedly a little inconvenient, Josh's project is pretty remarkable. Heh,maybe you can have a "dr's appointment' excuse to get out of work. It worked for me ;)

      Posted by Angeliki Jackson March 5, 2011
    • Randi L Klein's Photo

      unfortunately as much as i would love to go and do think it's a pretty neat undertaking (gotta be costing a pretty penny unless someone is sponsoring him???who knows....) it's not the most convenient time or place. just thought a saturday or sunday would bring huge crowds which would be awesome. anyway. i'll take the meetup--local peeps stick around so better off anyway.
      :)
