SKOUT’s Success and 2015 Survey

February 3rd is International Online Friendship Day. SKOUT, an online friendship site that connects people internationally recently did their own survey and released their highlights to the public. Their survey population was over 23,000 people. From what their CEO, Christian Wiklund stated, in 2015 alone, the site facilitated over 600 million connections through their platform alone.

SKOUT’s recent survey highlights include:
-that 3 out of 4 people have an online friend who they have never met in real life and over 80 percent have stated that they would like to someday
-over 60 percent of U.S. citizens stated that they have at least five online friends; over 40 percent have stated that they have at least 10
-over 60 percent say that they at least one online friend who lives in a foreign country
-over 90 percent say that they communicate with them through their mobile phones and almost 60 percent say that they communicate with their online friends on a daily basis
The goal of a website such as SKOUT is to fulfill the need for social support, connectedness and to complement “real life” friendships. In 2015 alone, almost 17 million travels were taken through SKOUT’s Travel app. This app helps clients to search any location anywhere in the world and instantly start making connections.

SKOUT remains one of the largest international social platforms. Their community includes over 175 countries and it is available in over 10 languages. It is a way through which people can easily connect without having to worry about online predators. Their future remains a very bright one and the fact that meeting online has become so popular will probably only allow it to expand as time goes on. They have outlets on Facebook and Twitter or clients can just sign up online by visiting SKOUT’s website.

Skout Is Unique, And Skout Is So Much Fun

Those who regularly go to the website The Nation to read any of the articles that they feature should check out the article published about the applications that should be downloaded. Although there are tons of applications that can be downloaded for many different purposes, there are three, in particular, that were chosen by the website as ones that would be a great download for anyone with a smartphone, or even if they have a portable device.

The list is somewhat impressive because of the fact that Skout is on the list, and Skout has very little in common if anything to the other two applications that also made the list. One application is specifically for the editing and creation of videos, but another application is mostly meant for streaming videos. Although Skout doesn’t fit into the list, it makes it even more unique that it made the list because of the fact that it’s not an editing or streaming tool for videos, but Skout is mostly meant for socializing and dating purposes.

A dating application like Skout is something that’s unique because of the extracurricular activities that can be done on the network. Instead of being like many of the other networks that only allow dating, if a person wants to simply socialize with someone else, then it’s allowed on the Skout network. Some people might be afraid to start dating, especially if it’s something they haven’t done in a while, so easing into it by socializing might be best. Two people can socialize through the Skout application, and this can be done any time of the day. Even if two people are in different time zones, communication through Skout is still possible.

Some dating applications will restrict people from talking to one another, just so they can charge them when they finally decide to speak to each other. It seems unbelievable that a person can go to a dating network to try and find a date, but they are restricted from talking to the other person, seeing their pictures, or even communicating with them at all unless they pay a fee. Skout isn’t out to grab money from every single member that joins, and a lot of the features on the Skout network are free of charge, even for those who use the Skout application.

The Skout application is free to download, it’s free to create a profile, it’s free to browse the network, and it’s free to talk to others. If a person chooses a feature like sending a greeting to someone, then this is a feature that would cost, as well as using the Skout Travel feature. The features that cost money on the Skout network are ones that are completely optional, meaning that a person can still completely utilize the network and find a date or a friend, without having to pay excessive fees or any fees at all. Skout is truly an excellent network, and it’s no wonder why many people love it.
