List of popular places and events
A list of places such as bars, coffee shops, clubs, etc. could be made available to the users for them to post on and review. The posts could also serve a place where people organize events. It could even be linked to an event page. This would encourage users to meet in real life, especially if the life of places are sorted by location, popularity, and activeness.
As a plus, users could also subscribe to places they like, and be notified when there is an event happening there, or when someone posts something on the page of the place.
Should add an event in my area
By providing more local result and Local Events
Grindr should allow a user to create multiple profiles. One for the individual. One to be able to create planned events like bar meets or weekend activiities or house parties
A list showing upcoming gay events in your area, that can be shared and check in too.
Allow users to create events and places where other users can check in and view who else is there. For example: cruises, gyms, flights, social events, bars
Show local events, an a better range to show ppl near you
For example use your personal profile to connect with people then switch to a business profile to promote gay owned business or events. You can charge for this tab
A monthly fee. But it’s a good way to not just promote a *** app but an app for all gay men to use in the community.
And to not offend people or bother people. Other users can turn on the tab to allow them to see the offers or promotions or just keep it off so they don’t get information.
Follow nearby events that are LGBT ?️? not just for the pride month but year round, make it real vs the online “dating” thing... clear of spams and fake profiles that want to scam users.
A good way to meet new people in your city is to have a section that lets us see what events or festivals are happening. With this in mind, we’re able to see who’s going and interact with them by messaging and meeting new people.
It would be interesting to add a new feature, maybe part of the "Explore" section to allow users to create events. Those events would include a name, type, description, date/time, location and participants/hosts. Similar to other media platforms like FB and Meetup, Grindr could have its own to make it easier for users on Grindr to meetup in real life.
Those events could also be sorted by date then distance. For example, if I am in downtown today, the list could display the events happening today near me.
Examples of event types could include social gathering, bar, clubbing, walks, coffee, restaurant, etc. or could even be dynamically created by the users (like hashtags), which would be the best case in my opinion. The users can then filter those hashtags according to their event interests.
