Social apps that can help people make new friends in their area include Meetup and Peoplehunt. Dog owners can also use an app called Meet My Dog to connect with other nearby dog owners.
Meetup, which is a social network that allows people to meet others with similar interests, is a low-pressure way to meet new friends with the group setting that highly introverted people may uncomfortable. Peoplehunt connects individuals who have reciprocal interests. For example, a person that wishes to learn Spanish can connect with a person who wants to teach. Meet My Dog is an app for dog owners to connect with each other. People make profiles for their dogs, including a picture, name, breed and birthday. Users can track which dogs are close to them and chat with the owners.
