Who Would Be Willing To Be Part Of A ZOOM Meeting(s) To Have Real Time Discussions Among Friends To Get To Know Each Other Better?

Who Would Be Willing To Be Part Of A ZOOM Meeting(s) To Have Real Time Discussions Among Friends To Get To Know Each Other Better?

Obviously, the fact that we have friends on here in just about all, if not all, of the time zones on the planet, thus it would have to be smaller gatherings by region to start. After all, it is around 1:30 pm EST here in MA right now, but it is 6:30pm in London and Tuesday 5:30am in Sydney.

It would be helpful in getting to know friends that we cannot meet with locally if we could use ZOOM to meet with at least some of them.

What do you think? Are you interested?

Ok. I will send a link and information needed to get on the ZOOM meeting on Saturday morning so that those of us who can meet at 1pmEST on Saturday can have the ZOOM meeting. In the meantime, we will see who else is interested.

And for those who have not heard about ZOOM meetings, then here is a source to read about them. However, you will not need to know details about it to get on to it. Just like with Skype and Microsoft Team, someone who is experience will post the details on here prior to the meeting, so that it can be as easy as possible for you to join in the meetings. I know that for Skype and ZOOM (someone who is familiar with Microsoft Team meetings can provide details about them) if a meeting is started, then others can join in the meeting for as long as it goes on. There are however limits to the free access time for each of these (ZOOM is a half hour per meeting. Skype is 1-2 hours per meeting)

And there is a limit to the number of people who can be in a free meeting -- however, it will not be a factor at this point because we will not have anything close to the restriction amount of people at least until a lot more people want to join a particular future meeting, when enough understand how about them and have the time to participate when someone posts about an upcoming meeting.
