Skout’s Survey On Having Online Friends

PR Newswire always has the best information on growing trends in technology and culture. They have recently released information regarding a recent poll that was taken by the online dating and social media network called Skout. The poll surveyed users of the platform to better understand their relationship with the platform, and why users liked their service. The results showed that users on the platform enjoyed having online friends. Statistically, 3 out of 4 people were reported to have a friend or more online that they communicate with, and a second statistic shows that a majority of these people would like to meet someone online in real life.

The information is useful when you consider meeting someone from the internet, but you should always be safe about meeting someone. Meet in a public place over food or drinks, at least until you feel that it is safe to trust this person. It is also not a bad idea to meet in group settings, like at a party or gathering. It’s not necessary to be as cautious when you have been talking to someone on text messaging or on the phone, in my opinion. However, I have found the more you get to know someone before you see them, the better it is in finding things to talk about during your time together. It is a great way to make friends, and you’ll likely find it helpful in building conversational skills.

Social skills are built through repetitively training yourself to engage with other people, and friendships are built around engagements like the ones Skout provides for users. Users can see what the other person is interested in when they log in to Skout. Their Skout profile shows their interests, and other information. Here’s the article from PR Newswire about Skout’s survey.

Skout Is Safe For Teen Usage

Online dating is not a new concept. In fact, people have been partaking in that activity for years now. That’s because it can be hard for people to meet other people in day to day experiences. Therefore, they begin to look online for friendship, companionship, and even love. What has been changing recently is the age of the users. It seems that a younger crowd has now been drawn into the world of online dating.

According to Examiner, there are a variety of platforms out there that teenagers can use for online dating. There are many of them that users can be of any age. Those are apps like Snapchat and Instagram where teenagers have the potential to hook up with strangers. The apps that are more focused on dating like Tinder do have age restrictions. However, people can lie.

Skout is one of the apps that was noted in the list and there seem to be many benefits of that app, no matter what the age. For one, Skout has a teens only section. This means that teenagers are confined to a different section where adults can’t contact them and they can’t contact adults. Of course, people can always lie which is a problem that any online dating site runs the risk of. Luckily, Skout is fully staffed with people who are always on hand to help out with security concerns. Skout is very mindful of every users safety. They will always handle concerns about someone being inappropriate, someone not feeling safe, and so on.

Skout is a great app because it features another safety feature aside from the age separations. Skout allows people the option to talk to users close by or users far away. Most apps force the user to talk to someone within close proximity which can pose a lot of risk factors. If a parent doesn’t want their teenager meeting up with strangers than they can help control the settings. They can talk to their teenager about only using the feature that allow users to talk to other users that are in different parts of the country. This is a great way to make friends all over and learn about new cultures. There’s less of a risk associated with it that way.

Overall, Skout is different from the rest of the apps. That’s because it’s not just an app that people use for hooking up. Skout is so much more than that. Skout has a community feel where users can come together and talk about life. It has a similar layout to Facebook. That’s because users are allowed to post statuses about how they feel. They can write what they are doing, a picture, or how they are feeling. It’s always important for users to use discretion when posting a status about where they are.
