Happy National BFF Day!

For National BFF Day on June 8, celebrate your IRL (in real life) and online besties! As technology plays an ever-present part in our everyday lives, we were curious to know how many people are meeting their best friends online in addition to real life. We surveyed more than 3,000 Skouters and found more people are meeting friends in general online than ever before -- and this extends to finding a bestie! While 70% of people surveyed say they have an IRL best friend, nearly half (48%) of people say they have a BFF they met online.

Additional highlights from our National BFF Day survey include:

Women are more likely than men to have a BFF they met online.

  • 52% of women surveyed say they have an online BFF, while 46% of men say the same.

People under the age of 30 are only slightly more likely to have an online BFF, but not by much!

  • Don’t assume that online friendships are a Millennial thing … 51% of people age 30 or under say they have an online bestie, compared with 44% of people ages 31-40 and 49% of people ages 41 or older.

A BFF who really gets you may not live nearby ...

  • 23% of people surveyed say their online BFF lives in a different country, and 28% say their online BFF lives in a different state.
  • 50% say their online BFF lives fairly close, with 25% saying they’re in the same city and 25% saying they live in the same state.

Many people have met their online BFF, IRL.

  • 45% of people surveyed say they have met their online bestie in person, and 93% say they want to meet their online BFF IRL someday.

IRL or online, friendships are about caring.

  • 70% of people surveyed say the best gift from a friend on BFF Day is a heartfelt message or chat session. Only 30% would prefer a gift.

SKOUT SUCCESS: LADY TORO AND RIVER

Skouter Lady Toro (SKOUT ID: ladytoro1) has been making friends on SKOUT for three years. In July 2015, she noticed River (SKOUT ID: river1175) on the Buzz of a mutual friend. “Her sense of humor was spot on, and I knew immediately she was a cool chick,” remembers Lady Toro. River sent Lady Toro a private message, and they clicked right away! “Same sassy and snarky sense of humor,” says Lady Toro.

Lady Toro lives in Amsterdam, and River is thousands of mile away in North Carolina, but they don’t let the time difference get in the way of their friendship. They even plan to meet in person this year!

“She cracks me up so often! We can talk for hours sometimes (and totally forget about the time difference, as it's usually halfway through the night for me). We've been talking about meeting up at some stage this year. I'm not sure yet who goes where, but I'm positive we will meet in person and have a great time together. I have a lot of online friends but never had a bestie like her; she rocks!”

SKOUT Success: Laura and Seth

Laura returned home from a particularly bad day at work a few months ago when she decided to download SKOUT to take her mind off her stress.

She noticed Seth’s profile right away on the Meet screen and sent him a Wink. Seth responded, and they hit it off from there!

That was back in September. A month later in October, they decided to meet in person at Walt Disney World in Florida. Laura made the trek from London, and they ended up spending the entire week together!

After returning to England, Seth and Laura decided to give a long-distance relationship a try. They became inseparable and have since decided to get married. Laura has moved to the United States to be with Seth, and their wedding date is set for Jan. 1, 2017 in Walt Disney World to celebrate the day they met.

  Congratulations to Laura and Seth!

Congratulations to Laura and Seth!

“Maybe someday,” she says. “I do want to meet them. I can't wait to see them.”

Not only have I met people but I have learned about other cultures because of the wide ethnicity range.

We have decided to go visit his family in Denmark, where he is going to show me around his hometown. It's unbelievable what opportunities your app has opened up for me!

All my new friends are fab. -Amy

I have made a best friend from SKOUT. We chat every day, always say good morning and night. It’s tradition now! -Sarah

They hit it off in person, and after Shirley had the chance to visit Blake in Louisiana a couple of times, Blake proposed in December 2014.

SKOUT Success: Joyce and Gilbert

joyceandgilbert_skout.png

For Joyce and Gilbert, the path to love ended happily when they used Skout’s Shake to Chat feature to meet new people. Both of them signed up for SKOUT to find a love interest and were members of the community for about a month each before finding each other.

Joyce is from the United States, and Gilbert is from Scotland, which is why they can only describe their connection via Shake to Chat as fate. “We know that it was divine intervention that had us both ‘shaking’ our phones at the same time 3,500 miles apart from each other,” says Joyce. “We hit it off right away and chatted for a few hours that first night. We talked every single day after that and immediately stopped chatting with others. We both knew we had ‘the one.’”

They chatted, emailed and Skyped for nine months before Gilbert flew to the United States to meet Joyce in person. A few months later, they got married! It’s been a year and a half since they met on SKOUT, and they’ve created a blog documenting their life together. Check it out!

Celebrate Your Online Friendships!

IOFDBlogHeader_skout.png

February 3rd marks the second annual International Online Friendship Day! We kicked off this momentous holiday last year and are psyched to be celebrating it again a second time around!

In this digital age, online friendships are flourishing, and SKOUT is super proud to play a part in helping people make new online friends all over the world! We surveyed more than 23,000 members of our global community to uncover some of the most recent trends in online friendship. Here’s what we found:

More than 75% of people have an online friend they’ve never met in real life.

  • 85% of people surveyed in Australia
  • 83% of people surveyed in Brazil
  • 81% of people surveyed in Mexico
  • 80% of people surveyed in the Philippines and Chile
  • 77% of people surveyed in Argentina
  • 76% of people surveyed in the United States

Miss Popularity award goes to...

  • The United States, United Kingdom, Brazil and Malaysia where over 35% of respondents have more than 10 online friends.

Meeting your online friend in real life sounds like a fabulous idea to…

  • 80% of English people surveyed
  • 81% of Canadians surveyed
  • 84% of Mexicans surveyed
  • 86% of Filipinos surveyed

Online friendships span the globe.

  • 69% of Malaysian and Mexican people surveyed say they have an online friend who lives in a different country
  • 79% of Vietnamese and Costa Rican people surveyed say they have an online friend who lives in a different country
  • 83% of Filipinos surveyed say they have an online friend who lives in a different country

There you have it. Online friendships are increasingly becoming a thing. Even the experts agree!

“Over the past decade, dramatic changes have taken place in the way we live, work and communicate but the need for friendship remains unchanged and essential to our well being,” said psychologist Irene S. Levine, PhD, producer of The Friendship Blog, a popular advice blog that helps people better navigate the murky rules of making and keeping friends. “Online friendships can complement ‘in real life’ ones, providing many of the same vital benefits, such as social support and feelings of connectedness.”

We couldn’t agree more! Whether you’re the newbie in town looking to make new friendships or simply want new people to chat with, you can find genuine friends online.

Sparks flew and their friendship soon grew into a romantic relationship. Almost a year into their online relationship, David traveled from his home country, Spain, to Tokyo to meet Yoshimi in person.

SKOUT Success: Lucas

When 24-year-old Lucas (SkoutID: flightattendant91) joined Skout a year and a half ago, he was excited to chat with people all over the world and learn about their cultures. Lucas, who is from Brazil and recently moved from Brasilia to Curitiba, was also looking forward to becoming fluent in English and practicing the German he’d studied for years.

Lucas decided to take his interests in other cultures offline, and this past summer he traveled to three different countries, where he met Skouters in person.

Lucas had been saving for this big trip for three years, but he knew it was time to actually plan it when he’d become close with some people he’d met on Skout.

“I talk to them every single day!” Lucas has said about some of his Skout friends.

After all that chatting, planning and saving, this summer Lucas traveled to Holland, Germany and Russia.

He spent a few weeks in Holland before he headed to Germany where he met up with Dmitri. After spending eight days in Germany seeing the sights, he went to St. Petersburg, Russia. In St. Petersburg, he met up with his best friend Irina who showed him her favorite spot in the city, Peterhof Park. Ten days later he went to Moscow. There he met up with Masha and Anastacia who showed him the Red Square and the Kremlin. All in all, a pretty awesome trip!

“Through Skout I've met people that have changed part of my life, how I think and see things, and also some people that I will carry forever in my heart.”
