Making connections with people was tougher many years ago. You had to be at the right time and at the right place to find a person that shares the same interests and mentality as you. We do not talk here only about love relationships. The development of Internet technology opened many doors to people that want to establish business connections.

So, the reasons why people want to meet someone new online are different. You can also find a group of people that is not enough confident to meet someone new personally. Because of that, it is easier for them to establish some connections online before they finally meet a new person.

Fortunately, there are several different ways of how you can do that. We will highlight those that are the most effective ones.

Join Facebook Groups

This is probably the easiest way to find people that will suit you the most. We suppose that you have a Facebook account. There are billions of users out there that also strive to meet new people.

Well, in most cases, people like the Facebook pages that share content related to interests they have. We suggest you start commenting posts that the current page is publishing. For instance, let’s say that you have a puppy in your backyard. You liked a page that is publishing posts about dog care. Include yourself with comments and ask a couple of questions. If someone answers to them, you can send a private message. Start talking about the current subject. Who knows, maybe you have some other similar interests as well. You will find out that later.

Play Online Games

We do not know how old you are or if you are a huge fan of online games. Yet, in practice, this proves as one of the best ways to meet new people.

You probably heard about games such as LoL or Counter-Strike. Well, we know many people that found friends thanks to these games. For instance, they start to play in the same team and after that, they connected through social media. In most cases, they do not limit the conversation only on the game. They expend it to some other subjects from different areas of life.

Logically, this way of connecting is maybe more suitable for younger generations. Still, if you are older, maybe you will find the same age person that also likes to play games during his free time. You won’t be able to find them a lot, but even one is enough.

Freelance Platforms

Well, this time we will focus a bit more on meeting people from the same industry field. If you are looking for a job or you want to gain working experience, then freelance platforms are a perfect choice. For instance, Upwork, PeoplePerHour, and many others will help you connect with the right people.

We do not want to say that all these people are going to become your friends. Yet, you will have the opportunity to find a long-term client from different parts of the world. If you realize that he is a great employee/employer, then you can start talking more about things from private lives.

In the end, we can conclude that these platforms are some sort of “all-rounders”. You can find a potential business partner and friend at the same time. Isn’t this awesome?

Meeting Apps

Despite social media, meeting apps are the most common method of meeting people that online users use. On social media, you do not know if someone is even willing to meet someone new. It is something you can find out over time. Yet, things are different when we talk about meeting apps. You will find thousands of people that are willing to make new friendships. Of course, they are also looking for a certain “profile” of people. Yet, there are huge chances that you will find someone that will suit you a lot.

We want to highlight some of the most “effective” meeting apps that helped many people to make new friendships.

We hope that you have good relationships with neighbors that literally live next door. Yet, it is not possible to meet everyone that lives in the same part of the city as you. That’s why this app can be a quite useful tool for meeting people that live near you.

More precisely, this app is a private social network for the entire neighborhood. First of all, it also serves as a good tool to exchange and share pieces of information that are important for the entire local community. Going from door to door is annoying, isn’t it? It is much easier when you do that from your smartphone. Besides that, it is always much easier to make the first contact with a neighbor that recently moved to your neighborhood. In that way, you will be able to meet him better in a lot faster way.

If you are a big fan of group meetups, then SAY is a perfect app for your needs. It is a meeting app that allows users to organize group video calls through a chat messenger. For instance, you know only one person and you want to meet his friends as well. You can invite them to a group video call thanks to this app. This is especially great if you do not live in the same place. It is hard to organize a trip that often.

Well, the focus of this app is people that want to find a love partner. However, the romance is not the only thing that you can find here. It allows users to set special settings that will help them find people that are looking for new friends as well.


Peanut is indeed dedicated to a specific target audience, but we simply cannot skip it. It is an app that tries to build a community that includes women who also happen to be mothers. This app also allows users to chat with other women through group chat call. It is a perfect place to ask for various pieces of advice associated with pregnancy and motherhood.
