In the past, if a person wanted to find a date that was international, they may have had to have a lot of money. It’s possible that the person with half to pay a lot of long-distance phone costs as well as traveling cost to go and see the person that may have met in an international destination. Now, because of websites like Skout, many can choose to date internationally without the worry of high communication costs.

Those who use the Skout network to communicate with someone who is in an international destination can easily save a lot of money talking to the person through the network. Skout has the ability to allow a person to communicate via the application or through the website.

Forbes magazine recently published an article about new app reinventing itself. The app previously known as Flipora is rebranding itself to be Rover. Flipora was an app the let the user ‘flip’ through magazine pages. This concept is now however outdated in a sense. Rover, similar to its predecessor, is labeled as the “ultimate companion” for uncovering content on the web that is personalized to your own interests. Comparing the app to the NASA’s Mars Rover, the Rover brand and app discovers internet content and delivers them to the user. But the content is based on the users personalized attributes and their own personal interests. There is also a comparison between the Rover app and NASA’s Curiosity in the Forbes article since both explore new territory and new interests. The Rover app is portrayed as an enlightening app that is personalized for the user’s specifications while also allows the user to explore new content that may interest them. The founding company put a lot of thought into the name change of the brand and app. Moving from Flipora to Rover was a step toward the future of the technology. The app moves into the direction of artificial intelligence as the article suggests, instead ‘flipping through the pages of a magazine’. Along with the change in the name, the interface of the app has been update for a more user-friendly minimalist interface. The users have greater control on how to use the app and share what interests them. This app improvement and the move toward the Rover name is a step toward the future.
Online dating use to have a negative connotation attached to it. I can recall several times when I told friends that it was something that I was trying out. They would laugh at me and they would make fun of me. I knew they were viewing it as somewhat of a pathetic way to meet people. I’m pleased that online dating has grown in popularity and it’s no longer considered a taboo subject. In fact, online dating now seems to be the norm.
The vast majority of my friends are either dating someone that they met online or they have in the past. It seems that it’s become so natural now. In this day and age, we are all so busy. We lead busy lifestyles with jobs and commitments that take up the vast majority of our time. At the end of the day, there is very little time left over for dating. That’s where online dating comes into play. It can be done as little or as often as someone would like. The best part is that we can online date while doing other things. It doesn’t have to be something time consuming.
