I have always been interested in social apps because I do not really like meeting people in person. I do feel I am a social person but, like others, I do tend to be a little shy at first. Some social apps (the better ones at least) have helped me tremendously, but I always felt like something was missing; then I found Skout. It felt like the people behind the app were reading my mind. I have to say that I was very excited about finding them, especially now that I am heading off to college.
The idea behind Skout is kind of cool. It basically lets you connect with people wherever you are. There are a lot of people who are already using the app. A few options on the app help you find people who are near you like at a party or club. You can chat, exchange notes, or even pictures to feel the person out a bit before making a physical connection. The app separates adults from teenagers to keep things at the right age range, too. It pretty much takes care of keeping a meeting safe, and it really makes it easier for people like me to meet people where ever I am. https://www.yahoo.com/news/skout-review-190606654.html?ref=gs
I am especially excited about using this app for college. I know that many people meet new friends at college. In fact, I read that 72 percent of college students met good friends during the first week of college. I am not sure that I am going to be one of those people. I think I belong to the 59 percent of students who are a little worried about making friends during their freshmen year of college. Keep in mind that I know no one at this college. I know that I am not alone, as I did read that many people go to college without knowing anyone, but that does not mean I am not scared. I’m glad I found Skout, which I downloaded almost immediately. http://download.cnet.com/Skout/3000-12941_4-75619529.html
One thing that was great to read was Skout just took out a study regarding some of the friendliest schools around. I was a little worried because I had already chosen the school that I was going to attend, but thankfully the school I am going to is in Boulder, Colorado, and it turned out to be one of the friendliest college towns according to Skout. There are others of course that include San Francisco, California and New York City, New York just to name a few. I am definitely excited about this new chapter in my life. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skout-reveals-the-top-10-friendliest-college-towns-in-america-300141309.html
