Jo never quite fit in…
Jo never quite fit into any single clique in school. She disliked going to bars, and the idea of going to a frat party and needing to make superficial conversation with random boisterous people made her stomach curdle.
For some reason, over the years, the only relationships that meant anything to Jo were the ones where she could talk one-on-one about deeper stuff.
Unfortunately, as she got older, it seemed like it got even harder to make those connections. She tried everything… coffee shops, chat rooms, karaoke bars, etc.
And then Friended came along…
Friended is a community where she got to chat with real people instantly that were just like her… it’s like she found her tribe… “finally”, she thought, “these are my people.”
After she downloaded Friended the first time, all she did was post an icebreaker and then she got one-on-one messages from tons of interesting, cute, awesome, funny, sweet, deep people… just like her.
Are you a little bit like Jo?
If so, just fill in the blank to create an icebreaker. The conversation starter takes the pressure off that first encounter.
Once you post, others will start messaging you directly, right away! It’s so easy to discover awesome people to talk to any hour of the day.
You can quickly filter through the people you want to interact with and go from talking to dozens of people at once to messaging just one specific person that really gets you. Your Friended experience is what you make it… no judgement, the only thing you need to do is just be yourself.
Download free. Chat any hour of the day, instantly...
The app is free to download and use, but you do need Facebook (for now) to help make sure that you’re chatting with real people.
You’ll probably just have a ton of fun chatting because that’s what Friended is designed for, but we’ve also heard quite a few stories of people making friends… and in some cases, the friendship growing into something more.

Paid “actors “
This app is a complete scam. They require you to use Facebook to make you think that everyone accessing it uses Facebook, however the company employees people to try and engage other people. Then you have to buy things. And that’s where the scam begins. First clue, oh it’s so nice to get a response from a beautiful woman like you. Notice how they always as a question? That’s because they get paid for the messages they send that receive a response. Somebody actually asked me what my name was and where I am from when it says it right there on my profile. And the whole stars thing is ridiculous. That’s a game and contest. There reason you are meeting people from all over the country instead of just your area. Because you will never be able to meet anyone in person. There are people on there like the ones who actually download this app, but they are few and far between. Don’t think for a minute you’re going to find anyone to start a relationship with on this app.
Trust me, I worked for a company like this that was based in another country who recruited people to work from home. I did this for about a day and then I really started feeling bad for the people that were being scammed.

We realize there are a lot of bots and scam apps out there. You won’t find that on Friended. Most Friended users are interested in chatting, which sometimes involves a person asking another person a question. : ) If you ever come across anyone seems fake to you, you can report or block them easily. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you need additional help.
It's cute but doesn't do what I feel like it should.
The idea of the app is great, like a Tinder with substance for friends. The problem is, I think a bunch of guys think that it is Tinder and they missed the substance part. I was hoping that I would create this and be able to connect with people in my area that I actually get to meet up with you in real life. I also thought I might be able to filter it by gender because I don't need more guy friends, I can go to any bar and find some of those. I was really hoping to be able to find female friends that actually have similar interests or something we could bond over. What I found out is that there's no way to filter by area or gender so I'm just getting bombarded with random messages from random guys that I don't know anything about. If I wanted that I would go on Tinder itself. I think a lot of females feel like it's hard to find female friends in this day in age and we are so busy and don't really seem to get out as much, and I feel like this app could help bridge that gap but, the way it's formatted it's not going to do that right now.

Thanks so much for this feedback. We know this is an issue and are working to address it.
This app is seriously the worst. For starters, I connected my Facebook & I was expecting it to bring me to a page where I could customize my profile on the app, but nope it immediately pulled 6 random photos off my Facebook (some that weren’t even of me) & put them on my profile followed by an “ice breaker” asking for “song recommendations”. After that my phone seriously began to shut down because of the millions of notifications coming through to the app because it made this post to literally every single user on the app. So I’m struggling to figure out how to set everything up, all the while my phone is being blown up by notifications. Apparently you can’t add a photo of yourself from your camera roll (only can use Facebook or instagram) & you literally HAVE to have 6 photos. I don’t use my Facebook or instagram so I don’t even have 6 photos on myself on those socials that I could use, therefore I can’t even complete my profile. Also, i can’t delete the post that I didn’t even post in the first place. I ended up just deleting the entire thing because it’s such garbage. Like I’ve never been so infuriated with an app!
