If you pay through Airbnb, I think they are responsible for any such frauds.

Thanks for asking. Yes, its somewhat similar (IMO, as similar as facebook vs Twitter). Meetup is pretty close though - the core philosophy of meetup is you want to plan ahead and find people of similar interests. you need to have a continuous meeting groups. Its a big overhead and not a simple task to lets say conduct a garage sale or find a buddy for running around a park.

I would say tellStreet is more like twitter whereas, others are more like email groups.

I suggest you try meetup again, as they have similar list style feeds for global and groups you're subscribed to, exactly like twitter or your site. The only real difference I see is you map them.

good point. But the core philosophy of both of them are very different. EventBrite is for organizing big events.. if you are looking for a buddy to play video game or if you are running a garage sale, its not the platform.

We were working on tellStreet for few months. Out IOS app is ready and is waiting for Apple's blessing.

TellStreet shows you all the activities happening right now or in the past/future at any location. You are looking for that extra player to join your game in the park now? for a buddy to play video games at home? You found an awesome deal in a local store and want to tell others about it? You want to quickly pull python experts around to hack a weekend project? What ever be the case, tell others what you are doing and and join interesting activities around you.

Finding activities is very snappy and creating is fun too. For now, we are pulling data from meetup to get you started. Checkout and Please leave your feedback.

Ah, what a fking wonderful nice philosophy. We should show the world that humans matter more than things.
