Thought-Provoking Conversation Apps

'Party Qs' Helps You to Become the Most Interesting Partygoer

— August 31, 2017 — Tech
'Party Qs' is an app designed to empower those with social anxiety in public settings.

In awkward party scenarios, even the most social of butterflies can struggle to flap their wings, prompting one company to design an app that eliminates the pressure of developing thought-provoking conversation starters. This mobile app makes socializing easier than ever, by creating a diverse range of intriguing questions, that can spark interest among fellow partygoers. Equal parts thoughtful and humorous, these strategic and easy to discuss topics include inquiries such as "have you ever met someone famous?" and, "what would you title a blog post if you wanted to get the most amount of clicks as possible?"

The app cleverly utilizes technology to help break down communication barriers, encouraging face-to-face conversation, as apposed to awkward wallflower behavior.
Trend Themes
1. Conversation Starter Apps - The rise of apps that facilitate engaging, thought-provoking conversations present an opportunity for tech companies to develop more innovative solutions.
2. Social Anxiety Solutions - As Party Qs has shown, there's an opportunity for businesses to create apps and technologies that can help people overcome social anxiety in different social contexts.
3. Human Connection Tools - Apps like Party Qs show that technology can serve as a tool to help people connect more meaningfully with each other, presenting a disruptive innovation opportunity for businesses to explore.
Industry Implications
1. Mobile App Development - As the market for conversation starter apps continues to grow, there's a tremendous opportunity for businesses in the mobile app development industry to create innovative apps like Party Qs.
2. Social Networking - With emphasis on face-to-face conversations, Party Qs and similar apps can disrupt traditional social networking platforms by offering a way for people to connect more genuinely.
3. Social Anxiety Healthcare - Incorporating conversation-starting apps into social anxiety treatments presents an opportunity for healthcare providers to enhance their patient care and outcomes.
