Social media and communication technologies like Facebook allow you conveniently organise social events in a centralised manner. You can create a group chat, or a Facebook group, to organise an event. For example to get together to play some board games, or do some group activity.
However, I wonder if, for getting initial buy-in at least, whether it’s more effective to contact potential participants individually at first. The argument is that in a group conversation, it’s easier for individual members to not say either yes or no. If you contact them individually, you’re likely to get an explicit reply.
What do you think, does this resonate with your experience?
