Friended is an easier way to make new friends and chat one-on-one (1:1) with real people… you'll meet new people blazingly fast (like instantly) and will immediately be direct messaging with interesting people... plus, there lots of fun things to do like video chat, play the guess me game, etc.
The best way to describe chatting with people on Friended… it’s 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, on Friended you choose when you want to be seen. To get started, just post a chat starter or send a direct message to someone else’s chat starter. So before you even get started, you have time to look around.
Also, Friended is an entirely one-on-one (1:1) direct messaging experience, there are no public comments to your post or chat rooms filled with trolls. Even when you post a chat starter and get a bunch of people replying, they are all direct messages between just you and each of those other users individually.
So, look around for a bit… then when you are ready to chat, meet people or make friends, just create a chat starter… within seconds you’ll start getting private messages from real people like you replying for a 1:1 chat.
Alternatively, flip up through other people’s chat starters until you find a post you relate to, or a person you find interesting, and send them a private message right through their post.
Again, these are all direct and one-on-one chat messages, no public posts or commenting. On Friended, it’s about getting as many real chats going as possible so you can have fun and chat with people… it’s not about posting the perfect photo, and it’s definitely not a popularity contest.
Once you’re connected in a chat, you can both opt into a video chat, play the guess me game with each other, and even share your personality test results that you just took on Friended.
It’s a different 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… either way, Friended was made just to chat, so have fun and say hello.
Here are quotes from actual real users:
“I really like it, there are better, real people on here.”
“This feels like Twitter for Friends.”
“This app changed my life because I’ve talked with so many wonderful people on here.”
Once you download, try are creating a chat starter to see the direct messages roll in or flip through posts to message new people directly… after that, try 1:1 video chat, guess me social game and the personality quiz.

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.
Developer Response ,
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.
Gets worse every update.
Every update they take more features away from you on this app just to lock them behind a pay wall. The only premium feature used to be posting more often, however now any sort of filter setting has been locked behind a pay wall. You used to be able to filter guys and girls, and what kind of posts you wanted to see. You can no longer do that without paying. This app had potential but I can see now that the developers are just getting greedy. People already drop off this app like flies, and the devs are just making it worse. You didn’t “add” features in the new update, all you did was make them cost money. Disappointed in y’all as a whole, you were originally creating something great.
Update 4/14: Dev response has turned into “the app just costs money now, deal with it” well I’ll tell you what, your users are dropping off exponentially faster than you can pull them in at this point. Word of mouth is everything, and at this point I’ll recommend tinder to anyone over this app with the direction you are going. Greeding your loyal users, taking features away from us. Used to have faith in you guys, but your recent update just goes to show you are not listening to feedback, and are only in this for a money grab.
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
