SKOUT Wants The World To Laugh A Little More

// Published April 4, 2016 by User1

Over and over again it has been found that laughter is the best medicine. Not only is it good for your health, but its good for your happiness as well. And if you really want to get the benefits of laughter, be sure to do it with friends. SKOUT, the global app that makes meeting new people as simple as pushing a few buttons, revealed that laughing is also great for making new friends.

According to an article published on, the SKOUT team decided to celebrate National Humor Month by examining several profile photos uploaded by its users. What they found was quite interesting. Users that shared photos of themselves laughing had their profiles favorited over 400% more times than those who did not. They also made 324% more connections.

If that doesn’t speak to the power of laughter I don’t know what does. Christian Wiklund, co-founder and CEO of SKOUT, was quoted as saying, “It was surprising for us to see the impact laughter has in a photograph.”

To take things a step further, SKOUT took the time to survey over 3,000 of its U.S. users. The goal was to see how the users felt humor impacts friendship. Here are some of the results:

75% of users surveyed believe they are funny
81% of users surveyed said they have a witty sense of humor
94% of users surveyed like making others laugh
Practical jokers have more friends than those who are sarcastic
Those with a sarcastic sense of humor are often afraid of clowns
Women prefer comedy films over chick flicks

To see all the results you can check out the post on the SKOUT blog.
