Share your thoughts: Calendar links and the Golden Kitty Awards survey

It’s been a while since we’ve seen this much discourse on Tech Twitter. Calendly took the spotlight recently as the most discussed product. It felt somewhat reminiscent of the 2015 “The Dress” viral phenomenon (is it blue or gold?!) dividing the Internet, except this time, the debate was focused on the question of "is sending a calendar link rude?"

The discussion stems from a post by former Facebook VP, Sam Lessin, arguing that Calendly is “The Most Raw / Naked Display of Social Capital Dynamics in Business.” The Twitter crowd can’t really agree on a consensus either: some shared a satirical response, while others offered up alternative products.

The Calendly team has been addressing concerns like these through a Calendly Etiquette series they started last November.

Still, if you side with Lessin or are just looking for an alternative calendar experience, here are others to check out:

Cal.com is an open-source Calendly alternative that you can self-host and integrate into your business. It's also launching Cal.com for web3 today. 👀

SavvyCal overlays your calendar and your recipient’s calendar, giving them the choice of how long the meeting should run.

Coffee Chats helps you build a no-code website that is connected to your Google Calendar. Think Carrd meets Calendly.

Zcal offers a free Calendly alternative that allows you to customize your booking page.

Hera Calendar was built with remote teams in mind, allowing you to schedule meetings and share availability across all accounts and timezones.

Woven Calendar leverages group polling to find the best time for larger teams to meet.
