I have moved around a lot throughout my life, and I can tell you, one of the most difficult things about relocating is meeting new people. Traditional social settings are scary when you literally have no friends to bring along with you, and meeting new people can be a legitimate challenge. That’s why you have to turn to the right type of social media outlet, and thankfully there are a ton of awesome options out there, and Skout is one of them.
Skout is a social networking website and phone app that allows users to meet new people in their area. It is often used for finding new people to date, but is also used to find new friends or just to talk to new people. Skout uses location-based services to find and search other users who are in the same area at the same time. Skout does not reveal a user’s exact location, but will show the general area of where they are. Users can opt out of the location tracking feature to protect their privacy if they do not want other users to know where they are.
Skout was first released in 2007 as a social networking website and eventually changed the network to a dating website in 2009 since many users were using it to meet new people in their area. It then introduced mobile apps for Apple and Android so that users can meet new people while on the go. The app will update who is close to them when they travel by using GPS location services on their cell phone.
When searching the list of who is around, users can filter who shows up by selecting a specific gender, what gender the other person is looking for, ethnicity, and age. Users can control which type of people show up so that they have a better chance of finding someone that they will like. Once a person finds someone they are interested in, they can click on the person to view their full profile. Users can post pictures, information about themselves, and their interests, according to the company profile.
Skout also allows people to add people to their friends list so that they can keep track of the people who they are interested in. Users will also be able to see who other users are friends with. With skout, you will never have to worry about who may be seeing your profile. You can see how many people have viewed your profile and their ages in the Who Checked Me Out section on the website or app.
Users can also send messages to each other to get to know them better. If they don’t know what to say, then can also “Wink” at the other person to let them know that they are interested. Users can also send virtual gifts to each other for fun. Some users may also have a Chili Pepper on their photos. Users who receive many messages will have the chili pepper, letting other users know that they are very popular at the moment.
Skout has some other features that allow users to easily meet other people who are ready to start talking. new travel feature allows users to search for other users in any area of the world whenever they want to. There is also a Shake to Chat feature that will connect users in the same location who are both shaking their phones at the same time. Skout is a great website and phone application that allows people to meet new people easier in their hometown or while traveling.
