Skout is an company that made an IOS app under its name to help people meet people, and that is free to download from the apple App Store. It has been around for quite some time now growing in the dark with no promotions or advertisement pushing users towards it. The app makers finally thought it was ready to tackle the advertising world and began buying ad time in the Facebook ads program to get the word out on Skout, and how it is changing the way we meet new friends.
What makes Skout special is that it’s a new model of a social network that is designed to introduce people to each other and help them make new friends, post pictures, and share information with each other. Anybody can sign up to the app by either logging in through facebook or simply creating an account using your e-mail. Filling out the profile is the next step and it is very easy and doesn’t take long at all. You simply fill a little profile about yourself, age, school, and interests. By filling out your profile accurately, you increase the chances to only make friends with people who have your similarities and interests.
When you start using Skout, you are looking at a grid like screen displaying profile pictures of people you might be interested in meeting. You can check out people’s profiles and wink at them to show interest, send them a message, or request to become their friend. Bringing up someone’s profile will display their basic information, hobbies, and their interests. You can even send people a virtual gift which could be symbolic to a real gift. The people displayed online in the grid are the only users who are currently online, which increases your chances to striking a conversation without wasting a lot of time e-mailing back and forth.
Using the Skout app system requires points earned throughout the app doing various activities. The points can be earned and spent regularly to meet new people and send out gifts and other. Skout is a growing social network that is approaching the whole social experience from a different angle. If you want to try something fun and meet new people, be sure to check out the app and download it. It can take a couple of days to build your profile, but once you’re done its totally worth using.
