What is a social? A Social is any group activity on our website. Socials are organised by our members for the rest of the community, as a means to meet up, do the things members like doing and making new friends offline.
Most of the socials are organised by regular Spefz members and are pretty casual events. Members who organise socials call themselves hosts and are generally pretty awesome at bringing people together. It is polite to leave them a review after the social to let them know what you thought of it.
Sometimes, we will organise Special Socials for our members. These are bigger events, that attract a lot more members and if there is one happening you should not miss out.

Whose Activity Can I See? At the moment there’s two types of Activity. "Feed" activity will allow you view all events and socials being created by all members. The "Feed Network" activity page will allow you to view all activities by only you and your network, It’s great for people with large networks who want to stay on top of everything.
Can I Organise My Own Socials? Yes, all members can host their own socials for others. We make it really easy so if there’s something in particular you want to do, post up your own social and see who’s free to join.
How Do I Create A Social? In order to create a social you must be a subscribed spefz member, it is also important to give the following information so spefz members can make an informed decision to attend your social:
- Firstly make sure you have a nice, clear personal profile picture – makes it easier for people to spot you at the social and know who it is who’s organised it
- Title: Think of a good title for your social – make it stand out from the rest & make people want to find out more.
- Categories: make sure you categorize your social so that like minded members will find and book on to your social.
- Pick a picture: choose a picture of which you feel reflects the type of activity that you’re doing on your social.
- A brief description: Be detailed but not overwhelming – Let guests know what to expect without overwhelming them with too much information.
- Venue: pick the right place – sounds obvious, but make sure you think about choosing somewhere you’d like to attend, that’s close to good public transport links and that you think will be popular with your fellow members. Don’t forget to add a meet up venue and details if needed.
- Add the date & time
- Pick the number of guests: sometimes you need to get a small group together for an intimate dinner, other times you can get as many as possible for a big night out. Select the maximum number of guests you would like or leave it blank for an unlimited number. Keep in mind there might be some last minute dropouts so add about 5 people over the number you would ideally like.
- Specify who the social is for: you can specify parameters for age and gender so if it’s a girly cocktail evening you’re after, the boys can’t rsvp. Vice-versa too guys
- choose a guest speaker for the social
What Is A Host? A host can be any of our wonderful members that organises socials or events for others.By hosting your own socials you can do exactly what you like doing and that makes it easier to meet people who have the same interests as you.
Who Can Attend My Socials? By default, everyone on spefz is able to attend your socials. However, as a host you have the option to limit the people who can join your social if you choose to do so, by selecting the option "just my guest" under the selector "who's invited" of creating a social.
