I am a type of person that likes to socialize, so it was no problem when I joined Skout. I first joined the Skout website, and when I found myself falling in love with the network, I decided to get the app. The app allowed me to use the social media network on my phone, and to talk to different people throughout the day. I signed up for an account, and it only took me a few minutes to do. I created a profile, adding my picture, some of my interests, and a bit of personal information. After I finished with my profile, I decided to search for people to talk to.
I had a specific type of person I was looking to talk to, and I wanted them to be in my local area. Although this was a great idea, I was finding a limited amount of people that I wanted to talk to in my local area, and I decided to broaden my horizons. I found out that Skout has users in dozens of countries all over the world, so I decided to utilize this information. Instead of doing a specific search like I normally do, I used the “shake to talk” feature, which is amazing. I spent hours on it the first day, shaking my phone, and waiting for a new person to show up on my screen. Those who showed up, we talked, those who didn’t interest me, I moved on.
I reviewed a certain girl’s profile, and it turned out she had a lot of the same interests as me, but she just so happened to be in Africa, and I live in the USA. I was not even going to bother making a long conversation, but I was intrigued by this person. I thought it was very cool that she and I had so many of the same interests, but we lived half a world apart from each other. After we talked the first day, I decided to add her to my favorites list. I didn’t see her online again for a couple days, because we are in different time zones. When I looked her up on my favorites list, I found her again, and we began to chat.
I found myself enjoying her company so much, I got curious and wanted to know if she had also added me as a favorite. In order to access this feature, I had to purchase Skout points. The points were low priced, and I bought some points, so I could find out if this girl added me as a favorite. I found out that she had added me as a favorite, and it made me feel a bit special. Using the points, I also was able to find out which other Skout members were searching for me, which aided me as to who I should add to my favorites list. No matter who I befriended, I really stuck with the girl from Africa.
This lady in Africa, spoke to me every time I was on Skout. We even linked up on Facebook. I decided to send her greetings, and virtual gifts, which can be purchased using the Skout points too. We plan to meet over the summer, but our friendship is very dear, and close to my heart. Thanks to Skout, I was able to find a best friend in another country.
