WHAT IS SOCIAL IN BOSTON?
Social In Boston is a group organized through the Meetup platform. If you are unfamiliar with Meetup, just think of it as the opposite of Facebook. Facebook is for everyone you already know in real life to connect with you online, whereas Meetup is for a bunch of people you don't know to sign up for an event online and meet up in real life. :)

Social In Boston Group Rules:
1. RSVP RESPONSIBLY
Your RSVP is your word that you will show up. Please RSVP only when you know you can make it and remember to keep your RSVP up to date if your plans to attend happen to change.
Reasons for this include other members counting on you to show up, showing respect for the organizers efforts, and even the amount of food that gets made for certain events.
2. PROFILE PHOTOS ARE REQUIRED
Social In Boston only accepts members with clear photo's of their face set as the main photo in their profile. This must be maintained for the duration of your membership. Requests to join from people without proper photo's will be deleted. Photos are required so we know who you are at events and also to cut down on the amount of spam accounts that try to infiltrate the group.
3. DON'T SPAM THE GROUP
The group is set to filter applicants to prevent the unscrupulous spamming of our members by people that are too lazy to do the real work required to find clients or promote their businesses to.
