Wednesdays.com is a tool that people can use to connect to others and meet over lunch, dinner or drinks. There are many different dining groups that range from everything from groups like "NYC Interns" to a "Hackers & Founders" group out of San Francisco. Users can browse through the different groups by clicking on categories such as entrepreneur, technology, startups and networking. Users can also see what upcoming lunches or events are scheduled. There is a recent activity feed so one can see what the latest groups are doing and who has accepted what events. Users can even start their own dining club and recruit new members. Wednesdays.com makes it easy to find new friends and beat the doldrums of the usual lunch routine.
Wednesdays is a newer application that launched in 2011. Their company is based out of San Francisco and they have a major presence in the Bay and New York areas primarily. Aside from this, there isn't a lot of other information available about them online.
Wednesdays.com is different from other applications that help people meet up in that it isn't focused on dating, love or purely work-related functions. It is more casual than a networking event, but could do more for one's career than a blind date.
Wednesdays.com is designed well and overall the site is laid out in a logical manner. Users can go to the Wednesdays.com homepage and see right away recent activity, upcoming meetings and new groups that one could join. It may not be graphic-intensive, but the site is ad-free and does the job.
To register for Wednesdays.com, one can use their Facebook or LinkedIn account. If they don't have either then they just need to input their email address. By signing up for any event on Wednesdays.com one automatically agrees to their terms.
Wednesdays.com offers its services for free. There may be premium fees that will be introduced in the future. At this time, however, those fees and services are not available.
The lunches, meetups and introductions to other would be worth while for any person who is looking to build their career and their circle of influence. Anyone who is young and working in particular could possibly find some new friends or contacts through this application.
