After Rapes Involving Children, Skout, a Flirting App, Bans Minors

The rape charges startled managers of Skout, the social networking app, because they thought they had adequate safeguards in place. It took three years for the start-up to find a promising business model. After switching from a Foursquare-like location check-in service to a flirting app that connects people with strangers nearby, the company was attracting millions of new users a month.

The acquisition is expected to provide greater scale for monetization and increased profitability for the combined company. I am thrilled to bring two of the largest mobile apps for meeting and chatting with new people into the same portfolio. Skout is among the earliest mobile social discovery services.

I am excited by the opportunity to work closely with their talented team to accelerate growth and engagement across both apps around the world. We believe this acquisition will further build on this momentum, dramatically increasing our scale, and enabling continued improvements to our recommendation engine, chat, and Discuss, to have an even greater impact and reach even more users.

Eighteen months ago, it looked like the location wars were over. A first-time entrepreneur, Wiklund and his co-founder Niklas Lindstrom put their heads down. Around that time, they changed the app to focus on a new demographic: young people who wanted to meet strangers and singles who wanted to flirt. The app supports about million messages per month.
