In our efforts to establish our careers, families or other personal ventures, our ability to meet people and create long-lasting friendships as we did in grade school or college becomes stifled. We have less free time, and therefore have to get creative about how we meet new people. Much like how tech has taken the dating world by storm, digital platforms are now transforming how we find friends.
Vinafor instance, is made by women, for women to make friends. Users simply swipe right to get more information on their potential bestie: personality traits, guilty pleasures and themselves in five emojis. After that, the platform sends you a personal message encouraging you and your potential friend to introduce yourselves and make plans for coffee or wine.
Friender focuses on activities you enjoy, helping you and a potential friend find better common ground.
Social media has also become a dynamic way to meet others with shared interests Facebook groups can often foster book clubs, virtual discussion groups, places of solidarity, or even meetups in different cities. Dating app UX works by combining biodata diversity, geolocation services and algorithms that match people based on mutual likes. The same UX is also used for friendship making apps since the ultimate goal is to match people by compatibility.
These apps seem to have match-making down to a science. The digital platforms we use may even be doing a better job at matchmaking than ourselves. Technology has no doubt simplified and enhanced our lives. At the same time, it can also stifle quality human interaction and make it less organic. Hanging out with people can often be dominated by everyone intently scrolling through their newsfeeds than it is by fruitful conversation. In fact, the tools that we believe are stripping away genuine, human moments are actually the very tools that are improving our social lives by giving us a chance at those encounters.
The study also found that relationships that began digitally were happier than their traditional counterparts. An app can go as far as setting you up with someone it thinks is compatible, but it is up to us to take it to the next step. Adulting is tough, especially when so many of us end up putting our social lives on the back burner. Friendship is often found in unexpected ways, and the authenticity of compatibility is what makes them last forever. Love Stories Work and Money Travel.
