What is VitaPeeps?VitaPeeps is a meetup network that fills the gap between random meetups and big events by connecting you to the latest information about where your friends, people that share your passions, and the local community are checking in and meeting up! So use VitaPeeps to meetup more as well as to learn about and get ideas for meetups!
VitaPeeps is just getting started, but overtime, we will become the best place to share and passively discover planned and impromptu meetups of friends and enthusiasts near you! At VitaPeeps, we pride ourselves on helping local friends, local enthusiasts, and local communities to engage in meetups in the real-world! We believe that the more people meetup offline, the better; as a result, our platform was specifically designed to passively notify users of meetups happening soon (e.g. in the next hour to 24 hours) as well as now and in the more distant future!
Do you have a mobile application?Yes, our iPhone App is available in the App Store and it makes starting a meetup with friends and people that share your passions as easy as sending one text to one individual!
Do you have an external web application?Not yet. We currently only have a web application that has been optimized for Facebook’s iFrame as a Facebook application because we first want to build brand awareness on Facebook through the many practical means that it provides as well as because we want to make it very easy for the vast amount of Facebook users to adopt the application.
We will be developing an external web application as quickly as possible after releasing our iPhone and Android mobile application(s). The external web application will include advertisements and deals that make it even easier for you to meetup with your friends, other enthusiasts, as well as your local community!
There’s nobody in my area currently using VitaPeeps. What am I supposed to do?Be the first! Additionally, click on the “Settings” Option in the iPhone application, and invite your friends from your contact list to check out your meetups on VitaPeeps!

They will be glad you did and you will too since now you all will be able to engage in more frequent and meaningful meetups in the real world!
