Frequently Asked Questions
NetworkedScores are another way to help you determine if an event is worth attending or a networking group is worth joining. When you visit an event or group page, you'll notice a number on the right-hand side of the content's name. This NetworkedScore is a value between 1-100 and helps you quickly identify which events/groups are great, and which could probably be better.
NetworkedScores are based on many signals both extracted from the social graph (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn) and mined from our own rich sources of local networker activity. These signals range from the abstract, like event organizer engagement, to the directly measured, users' clicking on a star rating for example.
Not all pages will have a NetworkedScore. This can be due to the type of event/group, or we simply don't have enough information to give a reliable score.
Note that writing a review, leaving a comment, or rating an event/group may not create a noticeable and immediate change in its NetworkedScore. Again, this is because the score is a weighting of many signals and any single additional bit of information may not tip the scale in either direction.
*NetworkedScores are powered by the Networking Intelligence Engine™
Recent popularity is a weighted popularity score across each content type, and the entire site, whose calculation is a function of several factors:
1. Number of unique people who looked at the content
2. Time spent on content
3. Time between content requests of unique people
4. The distance from "now" that the event occurred (not a calendar event but a user event like a page view or trend detection)
The weighting for each type of event drops off logarithmically as the distance from "now" increases beyond the a set interval. The interval time is also adaptive as it can increase depending on how heavily content is trending.

Please note: The events we post must have a networking aspect to them. In general, we will post networking mixers, referral group meetings, speed networking events and social networking functions at no cost. We do accept business seminars, workshops, expos and charity related events. If your event falls into one of these categories, you'll have the option of entering it into our Networking Passport program or paying to get it listed and promoted. Trade out options may be available for charity events based on availability.
Extra promotional opportunities are available for all events that we list and are discussed in the pricing guide.
You must have the organizer member role to add networking groups. You can apply to become an organizer by clicking the "Apply to Submit Events & Groups" link in the member toolbar section of your profile.
Please note: The groups that we list on our site must either be an explicit business or professional networking group, or hold events that have networking aspect to them.
While there are many ways to use the event filters to find events near you, the easiest way is to use the "Find events near me: Home | Work" link in the event search box on both the events calendar and events map pages. Simply click on either home or work and you'll see a view of events filtered down by a 5 mile driving distance to you (note: you will need to fill out your home and/or work address in your profile for these functions to work - if you've already filled out this information, you may need to resubmit it for the proper geocoding to take place). You can further narrow down your results by applying additional event filters (i.e. women's groups meeting within 10 miles of my work).
