5 Social Mobile Games That Can Help You Make New Friends

It’s one thing to find a game to play with your friends, and a whole other thing to make new friends in a game that you already enjoy playing. While there are vast communities around AAA console and PC games, mobile games usually don’t get as much love in comparison.

Luckily, there are some mobile games where making new social connections is a key part of the gameplay. In this list, we look at some of the best ones. Each of these games has chat functionality, an active community of players, and is available on Android and iOS.

1. Sky: Children of the Light

I’ve been playing Sky: Children of the Light for over a year now, and it’s perhaps the best place to start if you’re looking to make new friends. This non-competitive open-world social indie adventure is unlike any other, and is hands down one of the most beautiful mobile games I’ve ever played, so much so that almost every scene in it looks like a wallpaper.

As a “Sky kid,” your job is to find the lost spirits of your ancestors that once inhabited the kingdom of Sky, relive their memories, learn their expressions, and help them reunite. You do this by exploring the seven unique in-game realms, solving puzzles, and upgrading your cape to be able to fly farther and discover hidden locations.

What makes Sky special is its strong emphasis on facilitating social connections. There are parts of the game that you can’t access without the help of other players, and you have to spend in-game currency (candles) to befriend someone, and unlock chat and expressions such as high-five, hug, piggyback ride, and more.

As creative director, Jenova Chen, puts it when talking to Crumpe, “Sky is like a theme park–like Disneyland” than an

What is social media marketing?

Social media marketing means using social media platforms like Instagram, X (formerly known as Twitter) and Facebook to promote your brand and sell your product or service.

If your business comes out with a new item and you plan to promote the launch on social media, that’s social media marketing.

Digitas North America’s Ariel Sims assesses the Threads and X era of the social ad market

Subscribe: Apple PodcastsStitcherSpotify

For all the attention being paid to X (née Twitter) these days, Ariel Sims is keeping a closer eye on Meta’s Threads at the moment. Between the two text-based social platforms, the latter is the one that the svp and head of paid social at Digitas North America said she’s spending more time talking with clients about and thinking about.

“We’re having more conversation around [Threads]. But because my remit is typically in paid [advertising and] there’s no paid advertising on Threads, it’s more of a POV around what are you seeing, what’s the usage looking like, how do we play in that space,” Sims said on the latest Digiday Podcast episode.

Threads usage appears to have gone down significantly since its launch in early July. According to Sensor Tower, daily usage was down 82% in less than a month. Nonetheless, Sims sees Threads staying in the conversation for “at least the next six, eight months.” At which time Meta may finally introduce ads on Threads after playing coy on its ad plans with ad buyers so far.

“All we know is that it’s not this year [when Meta will introduce ads to Threads]. That’s the only thing that we’ve heard,” Sims said.

Here are a few highlights from the conversation, which have been edited for length and clarity.

Expectations for Threads ads

I think it’s going to roll into [Meta’s] native platforms and ads manager. That’s my assumption. Like as an additional placement, which makes sense. More inventory equals lower CPMs.

Threads vs. X

What I want to see with Threads ads is how it differentiates itself from X. One of the strongest advertising products on X has got to be Amplify, the pre-roll [ad] into content that people want to see.

The 5 Best Social Media Apps for Making Friends in Your Community

Whether you’ve just moved to a new city, are working from home, or have lost touch with old friends, there’s no need to feel isolated. There are apps at the tips of your fingers that will have you connecting with others in minutes.

What sets these apps apart from other social networking apps like Instagram and TikTok is that they encourage in-person meetings. When you’re connecting with people in your community, chances are that you’re also creating memorable experiences.

If you’re hoping to find like-minded individuals in your area, check out these social networking apps designed to promote a sense of togetherness.

1. Hey! VINA

Hey! VINA is an app created by women, for women. Unlike dating apps, Hey! VINA encourages friendship-only connections by matching you up with women in your area.

While initiating you into the app, it asks you to choose from communities and interests you identify with, such as: introverts, extroverts, dog owners, gamer girls, foodies, homebodies, mothers, expats, and LGBTQI+ to name just a few.

Profiles of women show up with a photo, their location, some personality traits, interests, as well as communities that the person belongs to. You can then swipe right or left if you are interested in connecting with that person. Just like a dating up, if there’s a match, you can begin chatting.

There is also a section where you can make plans, host your own events, and discover things going on in your area. To add a new level of fun, there is an assortment of quizzes and personality tests for you to play around with to get to know yourself better. If you’ve played the quizzes, your results show up on your profile for others to see.

But you know Kim Kardashian is probably the most obvious example of someone who had to pay real money and real prices. It wasn’t just simply an injunction to stop her from making the endorsement. She had to pay real money to kind of get out from under the liability that she had potentially created.

Andrew McCoomb  00:19
You’re listening to Disputed, a Norton Rose Fulbright podcast. In this episode, we’re talking with Erin Brown and Vic Domen about deceptive marketing practices, and in particular, misleading advertising by influencers on social media. Advertising has come a long way since the days of driving down the highway and seeing billboards. Influencer advertising is quickly becoming one of the most pervasive and effective forms of marketing out there. The Canadian Competition Bureau and the US Federal Trade Commission are concerned with ensuring that posts by influencers are not misleading, including as to whether they have a connection with the brand in question. Erin and Vic provide us with their takes on key areas that regulators are concerned with, penalties for influencers who engage in misleading practices – like not disclosing brand connections – and also talk about regulatory similarities and differences in the US and Canada. And of course, they also share best practices for influencers and companies alike. Erin Brown is a senior associate in our Ottawa office whose practice focuses on a wide variety of regulatory issues, including competition and antitrust law, international trade, economic sanctions and export controls, as well as customs and procurement, and she’s an avid consumer of social media herself. Vic Domen is a partner in our Washington, DC office, a government and antitrust investigations and prosecutions lawyer. As a former
