Boost Your Popularity on SKOUT!

If you’ve downloaded the latest version of SKOUT, you will notice a small battery icon to the right of your profile picture in your Menu. This icon represents your popularity in the SKOUT community!

The color of the bars along with the number of bars coincide with your popularity score, ranging from Low to Very High.

As with any popularity contest, there are several factors that determine your status. In SKOUT, your popularity is determined by the number of times your Profile has been viewed, the number of chat requests you’ve received, as well as the number of Likes people have given you in the Interested? game.

Curious to find out how to boost your popularity? Follow the instructions below to get started. The steps are the same for both Android and iOS. 

Step 1: Tap on the battery icon.  

Step 2: Tap one of the buttons to increase your popularity.

After tapping on the battery icon in your Menu, you will be taken to a screen showing your popularity during the past seven days. To boost your popularity, tap one of the buttons below the chart. For example, tap “Get Seen First” to move to the next screen.

Step 3: Sign up for Premium.

On this screen, tap the green button to select your Premium subscription.

Once you’ve signed up for a Premium subscription, your popularity will automatically go up because you will be seen first in the Interested? game; increase your search rank in the Meet grid; and have your chat messages go directly to the inbox instead of waiting in the chat request queue for approval from another Skouter.

Along with these awesome perks the Premium subscription gives you access to, you will also be provided with tips on how to boost your profile for optimal exposure to the rest of the SKOUT community.

After you have signed up for Premium, your popularity screen will look like this:

Complete your profile by adding a profile photo and filling out your About Me section. You can also increase your popularity by keeping your Buzz up to date. What did you do this weekend? Post a photo of your adventure!

Now that you’ve grasped how to increase your popularity, we’ll show you how to view your fellow Skouters’ popularity via Insights!

Not only will SKOUT Insights let you see the popularity score of a fellow Skouter, it will allow you to view if that Skouter has read your recent chat message to him or her; check out when he or she was last seen in the app; and let you know how long he or she has been a member of the SKOUT community.

To access SKOUT Insights, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to another Skouter’s profile and tap “Insights.”

Step 2: Tap “Unlock.”

Step 3: Sign Up for Premium.

From here you will be taken to the Premium subscription screen. If you have not already signed up for Premium, choose your subscription.

Once you have signed up for Premium, you will be able to view the Insights tab.

Happy Skouting! As always, make sure to download the latest version of SKOUT to access new features.
