Deffo is the latest member of the Chinwag family.
If you want to share public events, we want to help make that easy for you, without requiring you to be tracked or spammed mercilessly.

If you encounter any issues, timeouts, extreme lag in response times, or general weirdness please let us know. Include when it happened, and your timezone info.

Chinwag Social is back up, with shiny and new parts everywhere!
