Friended is a nicer way to make friends and chat with real people. It's instant, friendlier, and it’s all done through direct messaging.
Friended is an easier way to make new friends and chat one-on-one (1:1) with real people… you'll meet new people and start direct messaging immediately.
The best way to describe chatting with people on Friended is like having an unexpected connection with someone you’ve just met in a faraway place… it’s unpredictable, yet kinda magical.
Unlike other meeting and chat products that put you in a public feed as soon as you join, you choose when you want to be seen on Friended. Also, there seems to be more authentic people on Friended, genuinely looking to talk and get to know each other.
To get started, either A) create a post or B) send a direct message to someone else’s post. That’s it.
Again, these are all direct chat messages, no public posts or commenting.
On Friended, it’s about meeting real people and having genuine chats... it’s not about creating the perfect profile, and it’s definitely not a popularity contest... you don't need to compete to get attention on Friended so please be yourself when you post and when you reply to others.
Once you’re connected in a chat, you can both opt into a video chat, play the guess me game, and even share your personality test results.
It’s just a nicer way to chat, meet and make friends… you’ll go from being highly entertained while chatting with random people across the country to meeting someone that you could swear is your long lost karaoke partner.
Here are actual quotes from real Friended members:
“I was looking to make new friends and what I got was way better.”
“Friended has made a big impact in my life because it has allowed me to finally open up... I would definitely have to say this app is the best app I ever downloaded.”
"Even talking to some people for a brief moment is really inspiring.”
“I’ve made a lot more friends on this app than in real life.”
“This app changed my life because I’ve talked with so many wonderful people on here.”
“Better, real people on here”
“I’m really grateful, no other app has allowed me to have so many fun conversations!”
“This is an uplifting community I feel like in its entirety it is a friend in deed”
Once you download, create a post to see the direct messages roll in or flip through posts to message new people directly.

Better flagging system necessary
I really liked this app I just feel that they should be very thorough with reading peoples messages I was speaking to another female about how men will sometimes message us and how it’s frustrating that people will be like hey show me your boobs and I have been banned for just having a conversation I think it is ridiculous there’s no way for me to contact the support if something comes up and it is flagged as possibly breaking the rules I feelThat they should be banned for a week or get a email saying it has been flagged that way they can review it as a post to completely kicking somebody out of the app it was a really fun app and I really liked it butto that they should be banned for a week or get a email saying it has been flagged that way they can review it as a post to completely kicking somebody out of the app it was a really fun app and I really liked it but being banned for having a conversation just because it had the word boobs in it it’s quite ridiculous and I feel that it should be reviewed immensely

Black Hole Sucking My Messages?
I was having an awesome convo with someone. Suddenly, I stopped receiving messages. I thought “okay, maybe she somehow found out about something I did terrible in the past and she doesn’t want to talk to me”, which was quite optimistic. I didn’t think much of it, so I continued responding to posts and trying to make friends and avoiding guys that are down bad terribly (I’m a guy myself but seriously some of these guys are pathetic considering the name of the app). Anyway I thought the problem was a “me” thing, maybe I’m too ugly and they worry I’ll infect them or something. But, three days go by and I receive nothing??? At this point I’m questioning the app itself cuz ain’t no way on the first day I download this app I start having MULTIPLE convos with MULTIPLE ppl and then I’m suddenly getting ghosted? Like what kind of evil person would create an app called “Friended” when all that’s happening to me are tumbleweeds bouncing across my screen. I’ve tried uninstalling, permanently deleting my account, and using different emails just to hopefully get back into action, psyche. Now I’m here writing a review idk what to star, is this a 1 worthy? I’ll be generous a give a three cuz I did have fun and interesting conversations the first few days. But, if y’all know how to fix this help a bro out.

12+ but have to be 18 to use?
I’m 14 years old and I thought this app would be great to use to get know people, make friends, etc. And on the app store it says 12+ so I was glad to see that I could use (I searched up LGBT because I wanted to meet people in my community and a lot of it was 17+ and/or a dating app.) So, I tried to make an account with my Facebook, took me to a page that said something along the lines of ‘blocked because it is not available to your country, region, or age.’ I thought I was in the right country and region (U.S.A, AL) and on the App Store it says 12+ so, I didn’t know what the issue was. That didn’t deter me though because there was other ways to sign in without using Facebook. I used my Snapchat, put in my birthday (05 birthday is later this year in 2020), and added a photo. When I clicked like a next button, it says your account has been blocked. Again I was confused because I was over 12 years old. It took me back to the log in screen and when I clicked log in with Snapchat again, it said ‘You Must Be 18 years old or older’ I don’t understand why it has said 12+ throughout the app store for it to be for 18 year olds and older. I’m not using this to be like “Don’T doWNloAd ThIs aPP!1!1!1!” I’m not like that. I wanna know why, and if you could fix that so you don’t confuse others.

Hi, thanks so much for the feedback! Sorry for the confusion. It appears the App Store was configured incorrectly. Friended is for anyone 18 and up, but we're currently working on a version for your age group. If you'd like, we can let you know when it becomes available.
