Using Wayfarer map for in-person socializing
My experiences this past summer left me with an impression that people are willing to travel, explore, and interact a lot more as we ease into new norms. I've experienced it locally and on a national level. Personally, I took a trip for GO Fest with explicit plans to meet friends from Wayfarer I've made online over the past few years. I've also met more locals and reconnected with old friends.
Some of these almost feel like we're experiencing meetups for the first time, again. Where do I go? How do we talk past game focused discussion? How do we encourage our community to grow?
Do you think there is anything Niantic could or should add to their Wayspot-based apps and games (or Wayfarer/Lightship itself) to help us interact more in real life, face to face? What would you add to the map, Wayspots, or experience to help improve the social aspect? What would you not want to see?
