Then join "The New York City Social Networking Meetup Group".Come meet new people and make friends and useful business contacts as you network in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
All of these companies are playing with the idea of location-based social networks, attempting to connect you to others around you through varying means.
At this week’s Tech Crunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, even more services emerged to compete in this space, too.
It’s about discovering the people who are nearby you now – the ones you probably would like to meet.
This type of discovery mechanism is already being made possible by a number of services, including the checkin apps like Foursquare and Gowalla, the automated discovery of nearby folks via Sonar and Banjo, the group chatting in Yobongo, and the micro-networks that emerge through Lo Kast.
We’ve made it not only necessary but acceptable for women to make the first move, shaking up outdated gender norms.
We prioritize kindness and respect, providing a safe online community for users to build new relationships.

For now, the groups are pre-built by Holler itself, but it’s in the process of rolling out a system where users can build their own groups.
However, there will be some level of filtering and control, so duplicate groups are not created.
The powerful capabilities of today’s mobile smartphones are allowing for a new kind of networking: social discovery services, not social networking services.
