Dating apps have begun to dominate how people meet one another, but the Pivt app is proving that apps can do more than making romantic connections. The new social platform is designed to help people, and in particular expats, establish new friendships with one another based on the mutual connections and interests that they share.
As people age, they lose natural opportunities to make new friends. Whereas, throughout school, friends practically fell into people's laps, working full time and all the other everyday stresses of adult life make finding friends awkward and difficult. By connecting people based on mutual friends that they share throughout their networks, expats who've left behind their hometown friend groups have the chance to make new friends when they use the Pivt app.
