I come from South Africa, and I truly miss being in my home country. Sometimes, calling people back at home can be expensive, but I found a way around the hefty cost of calling people in my hometown. I use the Skout network almost every day to talk to my family members in South Africa. I can’t really afford to make phone calls or even send text messages to my family members in South Africa, so I rely on Skout to help me communicate with my family. Although many people know Skout as a dating network, I use Skout to socialize with friends and family members.

I’ve encouraged many of my friends and family back home to join the Skout network so we all can talk. I’ve never had to pay a dime to use Skout to message anyone, and that’s what I love about the Skout network. I’ll sit and talk with a family member for hours, and I never have to worry about how much the Skout network will charge me for using their services. I joined Skout a year ago, and I admire the fact that joining Skout is free of charge. I didn’t start using the Skout application until six months ago.

I didn’t realize that Skout had an application, and I wish I knew from the beginning, but either way I didn’t have a cell phone until about six months ago, so that’s how I found out about the application. I downloaded the Skout application for free, and I started messaging my family members through my smartphone. I can be at work in the middle of the day, and I’ll go on to the Skout network and message a family member. Sometimes, I’ll have a bad day at work, and talking to a family member will help me to finally get through the rest of the day.

I’m more than impressed with Skout, and I’ve even used the Skout Travel feature to see places in South Africa that I visited when I was a kid. I can use Skout Travel and see certain landmarks and popular places that I visited in South Africa. Skout really makes me happy because of the fact that it allows me to talk to people in my home country and even virtually visit South Africa with the Skout Travel feature. I’ve even sponsored Skout points for some family members and told them to use the Skout Travel feature as well.

If it wasn’t for Skout, I wouldn’t be able to keep in contact with my family members as much, and now I’m closer to my family than I ever was before. I plan on taking a trip back home within the next year, but in the meantime, Skout is the only way that I communicate with my family. I recommend Skout to anyone who has family members overseas that they want to talk to, but they don’t want the high price that cell phone companies charge.
