I think of myself as a very multicultural person. I have friends from different nations, I work in a multicultural setting, and I’ve traveled to many different countries. Because my travels to different countries were short-lived, I wanted a way to be able to meet new friends in countries around the world, especially ones that I’ve never traveled to. I was searching the internet for a chat website, when I came across Skout. Skout sounded perfect to me, because it has over 100 million users on the network, giving me a wide array of people to talk to.
I immediately signed up, and I also chose to download the Skout app, for the ease of use. I set up my profile to reflect my personality, and added pictures that let others know what type of person I was, and my background. I immediately had people on Skout looking for me, and asking to chat. I wanted to filter out the different people I would talk to, by finding those that were in different countries that I had never been to, or never heard of. Skout really caters to those who want to meet people in other countries, as the app pinpoints users’ locations.
I’ve spoken to someone in Australia, the UK, South Africa, China, Japan, Jamaica, and many locations here in the USA. I love the “shake” feature, which allows me to talk to people that I’ve never met before, and who I may not have searched for, originally. I just simply shake my phone, and then I get a new potential friend to talk to. I absolutely love this feature, because I’ll never know which person I’ll end up talking to, or which area of the world they will be in. I love the mystery behind the shake to talk feature.
I was able to do a narrowed search, and look for people in many other countries. Skout has people from different countries all over the world, so I decided to search through many of them, and look for a new friend. After finding several persons that I found to be interesting, and great conversationalist, I added them to my favorites list. This favorites list is very handy, because I can easily find the person when I want to talk in the future, as opposed to looking them up all over again. I decided to open up other features, by purchasing Skout points.
There are certain features that must be paid for on the Skout app, using Skout points, which are at a good price, so I can choose different features that I want. Since I’m all over the place, and talking to so many people from different countries, I was curious about a few things. I wanted to see who had been searching for me, and also who had added me as their favorites list. I found someone from every country that I had researched, had added me as a favorite. I now have a lot of people on my favorites list.
My Skout points can also be used to send virtual gifts, and I also decided to send several greetings to many of my favorites on Facebook later. This feature is a great one, because it allows me to say “hi” to those that I choose, and let them know that I’m thinking of them. I absolutely love Skout.
