Buddypass recently released its customizable Chat Groups feature where you can find and even create a social Chat Group on any topic. You can then keep it a private affair for just your friends, or open it up to anyone in the Buddypass community to join.

Buddypass has organized its chat groups to be listed by proximity, so the app determines your location, and then shows you all the groups close by to where you are. You can browse and find chat groups anywhere in the world, or create one of your own. This makes it really easy to find friends who you can eventually hang-out with in ‘real-life’, since people who are nearby are more likely to join your groups.

Where to start? When you create a chat group for the first time, you will want to select an interest catching title, so people browsing the groups get a glimpse or basic idea of what your group will be all about. So don’t have something meaningless in your title if you want your group to be about a specific topic. “Let’s Chat” isn’t going to encourage people to chat about horses necessarily if that is what you are looking to do. They will likely just want to chat about whatever comes to mind with a title like that, which can work too, but if you want something specific, choose a title carefully.

Next up will be writing a short description and full description. So again, nothing too complicated here, just write a few words about what you are looking for or what you want to focus on. You can copy and paste a portion of your description for your short description to make it easier. If you want to focus on a particular favorite topic, be sure to make it known somewhere in your description. Also, in your group description, feel free to lay down any group rules and encourage people to participate or you will have to remove them from the group if this is important to you. This is where you can set guidelines for behavior too, like no foul language or inappropriate comments, it’s your group, so you get to decide. The all-important image is the last thing you will have to include to bring your custom chat group into existence. You can use anything you want, sometimes a quick Google search on your chosen topic can bring up some good images for you to choose from.

So creating a chat group is for sure fun and most importantly, you get to be the boss and decide how this chat group will evolve and become a success. In order to help you with this mission,

Buddypass has equipped each “group admin” with a variety of features to ensure your chat group remains exactly how you envisioned it, including the ability to kick out or block anyone who you don’t feel is contributing or behaving in a way that is in-line with your vision of what you want your chat group to be. Simply visit the “Members” tab of your chat group to manage each person the way you want. You can also send out updates to your group members from the “Details” tab in your group. Members will then be notified and emailed about whatever you want to let them know. This is super-handy if you want to bring them up to speed on anything or if you want to organize a real-world meet-up or even a night out for your group.

What else can you do to make sure your personal chat group is a success? Be a great host, welcome each person who joins, and encourage them to say hello and participate. Help them in general to get past that natural shyness people have when they are doing something new for the first few times. Finally, encourage your group members to keep their notifications button on. It is found on their “Details” tab of the group, or at very least, they should be encouraged to check back regularly, so they don’t miss out on anything going on in your group.

To summarize:

1- Choose a great title for your group which hints at what you are about.

2- Describe it further in your Group Description and include any group rules you want.

 

3- Find an eye-catching picture that expresses the essence of your group in some way.

4- Manage your group and keep behavior in-line with what you are looking for.

5- Most importantly perhaps, be a great host, welcome people and encourage them to participate.

Following these guidelines will help you have the best Group Chat experience possible and help you enjoy the Buddypass Community to the fullest. Best of luck making your Buddypass Group amazing!

Aside from knowing someone for a long time, having common interests is one of the key factors to find friends and form real friendships. Buddypass was designed with this all too important premise firmly in mind and does a great job to make finding friends both easy and fun.

As the famous saying goes, “birds of a feather, flock together” and Buddypass uses this concept beautifully by providing two main avenues to help lay the foundation for true friendships. The first avenue, its Chat Group Feature, allows you to browse through hundreds of local chat groups on a multitude of topics. It even provides a handy search field you can use to type in whatever you are looking for if you don’t initially see the topics you are interested in.

Choose as many groups as you are interested in and start chatting with people on your favorite topics. Many of these groups also offer the opportunity for their members to get together for real-world meet-ups for those who are interested. It’s totally optional of course, some prefer to keep it to just chat and others are happy to get out with their groups for their favorite activities.Buddypass, find friends, group chat app,find friends app,group chat,free chat app, social networking app, socialize

The second way Buddypass helps facilitate finding friends is through its Now Feed. Buddypass community members post the activities they are looking to do and anyone browsing can tap “YES” on it, which sends your interest in the activity to the person who posted. If they are interested too, you’ll hear back and then it’s a go. If the post isn’t something you are up for, just tap “No, thanks” and move on to browsing the next post on the list.

So there you have it, finding friends and chat groups on Buddypass is as easy as 1,2,3. Download the Buddypass App today, it’s free for iOS and android and start making friends right away!

Running is a great way to get fit and finding friends to run with is a great way to have fun and stay motivated. Finding a running group that fits your needs can be difficult; often times established groups don’t cater to beginner runners, store led clinics can be expensive, and sometimes there simply isn’t a group or club in your area.

When you can’t find a running group that fits your needs, why not start one?

Choosing a Schedule

To maximize participation pick a day and time that doesn’t conflict with the typical work day. Most running groups start with a weekend morning run and expand from there. Once you have a group of regulars established for your Saturday or Sunday morning run, poll them and use that info to help you decide when to add another run to the schedule. It could be a weeknight, a pre-work morning run, or even a lunch hour jog.

It’s also beneficial to choose a goal race for your group to train for. The race you choose will dictate your schedule to a certain extent, but remember it’s not necessary or realistic to try and run each training run as a group. Pick 1–2 training runs each week to do as a group. It’s advisable for one of them to be the long run, but the other is your choice.

Promoting Your Group

The next step after settling on a schedule for your running group is to begin promoting it. The easiest way to do this is to create a group event with the Buddypass App. Buddypass will help you find other locals with an interest in joining a running group. Encourage your early members to recruit friends and be sure to keep the latest info up to date in your Buddypass group.

Etiquette and Rules

Make sure members are familiar with group running etiquette and rules. You can consult your group when creating them to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Some rules typical to running groups include;

  • No headphones, headphones designed for running are great during solo runs but group runs are meant to be a social activity.
  • Be on time, and let the group leader know if you can’t make a run. You don’t want to hold up the group while they wonder if you’re coming or not.
  • No jingling, secure loose keys and change to avoid driving your group members crazy.
  • No runner gets left behind, try to stay together or in smaller groups if paces widely vary.

Keep it Safe

When choosing routes for your new running group always scout out the entire route to ensure it is safe. Your run should take place on sidewalks and trails whenever possible, avoid running on busy streets. Here are a few more tips to keep your group safe.

  • When running on the road always face traffic
  • Wear reflective clothing, or better yet a flashing light when running in the dark.
  • Carry ID, transit fare and payphone change in case of emergency.
  • Stay alert and obey road rules.

Finally make it fun, invite everyone out for coffee or a meal after the run. This gives the group a chance to bond and create meaningful friendships. As your group grows you may want to enlist the help of other members to organize runs, scout events and act as pace bunnies. Buddypass will help you easily manage it all and make it easy for new members to find your group.

Buddypass-meetupOkay, the day has come. You’ve discovered new people on Buddypass who share the same interests as you and you’ve made plans to connect with your new friends. We go on the app to meet people, so why do we stress about these things? We are here to give you some tips on how to make the most of your Buddypass Meet-up.

Step 1: You must actually go to the meet-up. There are two types of people in this world – those who go out and do things and those who don’t and ask how it went instead. Be the person who gets asked how things went.  Showing up is the biggest key to having a successful meet-up. Without showing up, you’ll just be a person who asked how it went.

Step 2: Attend the meet-up with an open attitude. Some people may be slightly different than what you imagined. Don’t let that discourage you from having a great time… you connected for a reason!


Step 3: Stay off your phone! Engage in conversations and show people you’re interested in hanging out with them – this goes a long way! Don’t worry, Buddypass will still be there when the meet-up is over no matter how it goes.

Step 4: Be yourself.

Step 5: Don’t get discouraged if your meet-up doesn’t go as planned. There are thousands of events going on and not every one is going to be perfect. Keep attending and you’ll find a great group of new friends!
