Using Skout to Keep in Touch

Social media fans, rejoice! If the current platforms you have been using aren’t enough for you, then Skout might be the next best thing for your phone. Skout is a free downloadable app that has been around for a little while, but is now picking up in speed thanks to its popularity.

As originally reported in Adweek, like other social media tools, users on Skout can meet new people, make new friends, and of course, exchange pictures. It’s quite simple to sign up. You can do it using an email address or even from a Facebook account. After signing up, you have to fill out a profile, which includes whether you are interested in women or men. The developers say this helps the app display only people you might be interested in.

The main screen is a bit different than what many social network regulars are used to. The main screen just shows a grid view of different people who happen to be online.

Skout has some features that may be new to some. You can open another section on the app called the “drawer.” This shows you other wasy of browsing the user network. Click “buzz” to show your social feed, “Look at Me” to play a game and earn points, or “Shake to Chat” to start a conversation with a completely random stranger.

A lot of the features on Skout will cost users “points.” Points can be purchased or you can get them by working with the site’s advertising partners or getting other people to pay points to view your private photos, called “backstage photos.”

You can use points that you have earned or purchased to find out who has looked at your profile or sned a “wink bomb” to other users.

Yeonmi Park: North Korean Refugee Spokesperson

In her autobiographical Amazon best-selling book In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom, rights activist Yeonmi Park relates what it was like growing up knowing absolutely nothing about freedom. Her book begins when she is 13-years-old when on March 31, 2007 as she crosses the Yalu River into China. These are her first steps into freedom. Her journey would take her and Yeonmi’s family several years and be hundreds of miles long. Along the way the family endured many hardships such as abuse by the men who were helping them escape, starvation, and Yeonmi Park’s father dying of cancer on the way.

Her amazing story of survival which was retold by the has made Yeonmi one of the most famous human rights activists alive today. Like many celebrities, Yeonmi is definitely not without her critics. There are those who point out small discrepancies in her story and say this indicates she made the whole thing up. Despite these criticisms, Yeonmi has stuck to her gun saying there are discrepancies because she either had to change the facts in order to protect family members still in North Korea or changed facts because of shame (such as a story being raped when she was just 13-years-old).

Yeonmi speaks on behalf of tens of thousands of North Korean refuge all over the world. The rest of the world needs the Youtube video testimony of these refugees. We certainly won’t be getting any information from North Korea, which has been known for years as the most reclusive, secretive nation in the world.
