Skout is a social media platform available on Android and iOS devices. Skout is an app developed to help you connect with new people and to help spark friendships and relationships. Signing up to Skout is very easy and can be done using an email address or your Facebook account. So you’re probably asking yourself why in the world would I need another social media platform when I already have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Google Plus, LinkedIn, and others on my device. Well, Skout is unlike any of those applications and provides many features that are not offered on those platforms. While you may be able to search Facebook to find someone who lives in Italy just randomly reaching out to them via Facebook Messenger to chat might not always be accepted by the other party. When you are utilizing Skout and wish to meet someone from another country you can just use their Travel Feature which is like a virtual passport and connect with somebody in that country who’s ready and willing to chat.
Like many social media platforms, you have the ability to share more about yourself as well as pictures with others on the platform however when viewing peoples pictures and profiles on Skout, unlike other platforms you earn what are called points. These points can be utilized to unlock and utilize other features in the Skout platform. Things such as viewing profiles, utilizing features, uploading pictures, and other activities will help you build up these points so you can unlock other features. One of my favorite features of the Skout application is the Feature Me option. This option allows me to utilize my points and put my profile front and center for other Skout users to find. After a short time of using this app, I have already made friends in many places around the world and you can too by simply downloading the Skout app from your favorite Play Store.

I guess that is fine, but I usually only talk to the users that have real pictures of themselves attached to their profile.
I found an article from PR Newswire that talks about all the things that Skout is doing for their community. I was really impressed to see how active they are in helping other people in their community. It is a good mark of any business to spend time, energy and resources in order to help other people.

There are several similar companies like Handy out there but none have made it as successful as they have. Mainly due to the reason that in order for the model to succeed you need to be able to supply your customers with top quality service professionals. A company who recently had to close due to the intricate way that it handled its contractors was Homejoy. Homejoy is a platform very similar to Handy that has since closed earlier this year as it was facing 4 lawsuits by its contractors who were questioning their position at the firm. Handy on the other hand does not see its contractors as actual employees of the firm. Rather their main focus is to make it possible for people to provide their services very flexibly without having to sign into some sort of employment contract. This has allowed both students or busy parents to make some extra cash using this platform. Actually according to Oisin Hanrahan the founder and CEO of Handy said that 80 percent of the contractors on his platform work less than 20 hours per week and for that exact reason allows people from all walks of life to make a little bit of extra money through his platform. The founder of Homejoy, Aaron Cheung is facing further backlash as it has surfaced that he was saving customer data and providing it to other parties. This is something that Oisin Hanrahan said is not an issue because when you delete your profile all the data is removed.
Handy has been fixed to in and around New York at the moment but has plans to expand further in the future. Handy services as well as household cleaning has been the main source of their revenue.
