Once people finish their educations and get started in the workplace, opportunities to meet new friends reduce dramatically, and the Around app is positioning itself as a potential antidote to that temporal antisociality. The app gives people an easy way to meet up with other users for whatever they're interested in.
On the Around app, users specify the types of activities they want to get up to by picking from different categories. Whether its a brunch, a karaoke night, or a spin class, the app lets users pick, banking on shared interests increasing the likelihood of newfound friendships. The apps especially good for solo travelers or recent transplants, giving them a chance to branch out and make a new network.
