Skout is one of the latest and largest global online application that helps people find and make new friends in the social media circle. With a coverage of more than 170 countries, and available in more than 16 different languages, skout is fast spreading to more countries and users globally. Skout’s main aim is to connect people globally with the safest, easiest and convenient way possible. The company was started in 2007 by Christian Wiklund and has its headquarters at San Fransisco. The main aim was to use the application to help people find, interact, make new friends and share ideas.
It allows you to view the profile of users who are online at the time by just clicking on their image. You can then add them to the favorites list, if you are interested, or choose from other various options available. Options like shake to chat starts a conversation with a random unfamiliar individual, but will be able to see their profile after 40 seconds.
In its quest for giving back to the community, the company is making a donation to Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, for every time a superhero-themed virtual gift, within the application, sent to a Skouter by another skouter. This will continue until a wish is fully funded. This was started to celebrate the National Superhero Day, which the company did a survey on to find out how people felt about superheroes and give the people a chance to be real life superheroes to others in the community. It is a great privilege for the Skout Company and community to be able to help make somebody’s wish come to be. In compliance with the CEO and founder of the company, Mr. Wiklund, to send a virtual gift to your friend not only shows that you are thinking about them but also about others out there too.
Superheroes do not have to be the people we see on the televisions and movies who have individual superhuman abilities or special devices to save the world from villains. Some belief that real superheroes do exist, and others believe that helping others with the little we can and have superhero enough. Helping those in the community who need different aid in various areas is being a superhero in your unique way. Truly, Skout is a superhero application to the whole world.
