Well maybe not a trick per say but handy tool.....

When on the map of members, in the top right corner is a button that will open a conversation box with all the people in the map view already addressed for you conversation, just fill in convo title and body, send......

This is a great way to communicate with all the people in a selected ( zoom in/out on map, this "pins" in view are selected) area, say to set up meet and greet, or if traveling to another area and looking for meet ups or help or info....

Maybe I am just discovering this feature and you all know about it, if so, oops.

Travel safe, but travel!

That is pretty handy to know!

Little more zooming out (relatively) and I would be in your map!

One tip is to filter everything out except members so you don't get error messages.
