When a friend of mine told me about Skout, I had never heard of it, nor was I interested. I would have never thought that things would end up the way they did, because I’m not one to go on to social media. Although social media websites tend to bother me, because it seems as if no one is being honest, I decided that I would give it a try one day when I got bored. It was very rainy outside, and I decided that I was going to stay indoors for the day. I didn’t feel like watching a movie, and I didn’t want to do anything else.
I tried to keep the search to my local area, but I was intrigued to know that Skout was in 180 countries, allowing me to talk with different people from other parts of the world. Although I was very excited to talk to others around the world, I was worried about the language barrier. I decided to talk to people in English-speaking countries at first, and then I would work my way over to other countries, that did not primarily speak English. I had so much fun on Skout the first day, I downloaded the app the next day.
I sat on my phone for hours, playing on Skout, because it was a Saturday, and I actually didn’t go out, like I had planned to, because I was having so much fun. I’ve gotten to meet new people, and I’ve even made some local friends. I purchased Skout points, which I was able to use to send greetings to others, just to let them know that they were in my thoughts. The things that I can do on Skout is almost endless, and there are over 100 million people to meet on the network.
