In a transitional area like the Grand Strand, even locals find it hard sometimes to meet people with similar interests. There are various groups people can join to strengthen their social network, and the younger generation, in particular, is taking advantage of modern technology to find people who share common pastimes.
Meetup.com provides a window of opportunity to join almost any type of group you can imagine. With a quick visit to the Internet, anyone can download an application to any iPhone or Android device to be instantly connected to Meetup.com. When it comes to groups, the sky seems to be the limit.
There are social groups and singles groups for all ages, religious groups, sports or entertainment groups. There are specialty groups that range from Sci-Fi Friends to Reptile Enthusiasts, to Vampires, Witches and Werebeasts to Myrtle Beach Humanists & Freethinkers. The site reflects the diversity of “neighbors getting together to learn something, do something, share something.”
