Example of my MeWe calendar

  • Many OpenSimmers are shifting to MeWe.
  • So it may be practical to promote OpenSim events on MeWe
  • I have a calendar with events I set up and those for which I accepted invitations.
  • I could use that calendar to keep track of events I want to go to.
  • I can set a reminder that I will get if MeWe is open in a browser tab
  • I can invite my friends on MeWe to an event.
  • I can send notices to Facebook and Twitter.
  • I can put a link to an event in my blog.
  • If you are not a MEWe member, you may just get an invitation to join MeWe.
  • Link to My MeWe calendar.
  • Hypergrid communication quest, What we can get from MeWe?
