The idea behind Spontacts is not new, there were already similar platforms, could not establish itself, however, to the extent. With nearly 550,000 members Spontacts is a giant and there are a lot of events. Who lives in a small village, it has, of course, a bit harder to find a suitable activity in the area, but the radius search proves that there is here from the black forest to Hamburg for a matching activity. In addition, the possibility itself is still to put something on the legs. Newcomers should strive according to our experience to other events and not equal to the 10-person Dinner want to organize. The members from Spontacts take, in principle, prefer for people who already have a contributor-award in profile and not completely new on Spontacts are.
