Skout is widely known as a software industry. However, the name Skout is often attached to the famous dating application that goes by the same name and is developed by the same company. Skout features the ability to separate its audience on the basis of their age, one group constituting of the teenagers and the other group of the adults. For the adult audience, Skout offers the option of turning on one’s location and using the GPS tracking system to locate the people in the nearby areas using the same application.
Thus, it was initially meant to expand the social interactions of people when it was first launched in 2007. A revised version, however, quickly followed in 2009 when the developers of the application realized that their product had gone viral for dating purposes. This option became quite popular and was soon to be used by Skout to create a positive impact on the world. In the meantime, Skout was rapidly spreading throughout the world, taking into its charm a number of countries (180 according to the most recent surveys) and attracting translators of 14 various languages.
Last year, Skout decided to mark the day when the existence of grilled cheese is celebrated by shaking hands with the Food Bank branch of SF-Marin. According to this agreement, Skout’s users clicked on the various options given on the application and in turn, Skout sent donations to the Bank. By the time the charitable work was completed, a staggering 10,000 people had benefited from the campaign.
The number reflects the strength of the people who go hungry in the areas of San Francisco and Marin, and Skout aims to give them, at least, one good dinner. For this purpose, the fourteenth of March this year saw Skout draw up a similar agreement, yet again with the Food Bank, this time in the celebration of the existence of potato chips. A click on a bag containing potato chips on the screen as a present to a loved one would send real donations to the Bank.
