The global app that spearheads internet relationships is SKOUT, and this app is designed to help the user meet people around the world easily. In today’s culture, technology makes the world go ’round, and no one wants to be left out. No longer is it an option not to have a computer, cell phone or other electronic equipment. When you use these every day, you can’t help but meet people participating on the same websites with the same interests as you. Friendships are developed that are significant to both parties.
Many people rely on those they meet and know online, and SKOUT is a great app to build relationships. CEO and co-founder of SKOUT is Christian Wiklund. Mr. Wiklund created SKOUT to allow its users to connect with friends across the globe, and better yet, to keep in touch with them.
This year Skout International created an online friendship survey in honor of the new annual holiday. With over 600 million connections in 2015, they contacted 23,000 people around the world for the survey. Some of the information that was discovered includes:
1) three out of four people who use the Internet have an online friend that they don’t know in person.
2) Most people surveyed have at least five online friends, and 80 percent would like to meet them in real life.
3) Three-fifths of Americans surveyed say they have at least five online friends, and two-thirds report they have over 10 all across the globe.
4) Over half of the Americans surveyed say they have friends online who live in another country.
5) The mobile or cell phone is the most common means of communication, and at least 60 percent report that they communicate daily with their online friends.
