How To Find Friends on Kik and What’s the Best Kik Friend Finder?
If you’re home alone and bored, all your friends are at work, school or wherever, and you want to talk, what do you do? Fire up Kik and find someone! While the social network is all about connecting friends, it’s also possible to meet new people too. In this article, I’ll show you how to do just that.
If you’re new to Kik, let’s first cover the basics.
Setting up Kik
Getting Kik up and running on your device is very simple.
- Download and install the latest version of Kik for your brand of device.
- Enter your cell number when prompted.
- Select Settings and Privacy and allow Address Book Matching. This works the same on Android and iPhone.
- Start a chat with each friend to make sure you are connected.
Now that you have your main friends linked to your Kik account, you can spread your net a little wider.
For your friends who aren’t yet on Kik, you have the option to “Tell Friends About Kik” within the Settings menu. If you want to chat to buddies on Kik, send them a link through this option. You can then send a link through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks so they can get on Kik too.
The best Kik friend finder
The best way to find friends on Kik is to use Kik Cards. These are profile cards within the app that enable people to share their details across the world. It’s a good way to meet new people without having to leave the Kik ecosystem.
- Navigate to Settings in Kik and select Share Your Profile.
- Select your social network(s) of choice to share your own profile.
- Navigate to the conversation window in Kik.
- Select the little globe icon and use a search term to find a chat.
Use search terms such as ‘chat’, ‘football,’ or whatever your interests, to try to find ongoing public chats. Engage with chatters to quickly gain friends.
You can also use public groups to make friends on Kik. Public groups can have up to 50 members and are an ideal way to meet new people and chat about subjects you like. Here’s how to find a public group.
- Navigate to your main chat list in Kik. Tap the ‘+’ icon and then Public Groups.
- Either use the popular search banner or perform a search of a subject you’re interested in.
- Tap a public group to learn more about it.
- Select Join Public Group if you want to join and start chatting.
Kik friend finder websites
If you want to spread your net even wider, there are a number of third-party websites that feature Kik users. The trouble is, most of these are rife with popups, ads, adware or worse. There are also the usual scammers as there are on any network so while these websites do provide a service, it is very much buyer beware when using them!
Kik Contacts is one of the least annoying Kik friend finder websites. It shows users online, allows you to browse users using category searches and can even perform user matching based on age, gender, interests and location. The user base is generally 13-20 but there are a wide range of other ages in fewer numbers.
Kik Friends Finder
Kik Friends Finder does much the same thing but has a much wider age range of users. You can generate new Kik usernames, meet girls, guys or whatever, flirt, chat, search and more. The site is fast, doesn’t have popups and makes it easy to meet new people and chat either online or through Kik.
Kik friends is another simple site that allows you to search for users by gender, or by who is online. Then you can refine your search by age, interest, or image, and go from there. It’s a very simple site with a minimal UI that keeps users front and center.
KUserfinder has a lot of popups, but aside from that annoyance, it works well. It also features sexting ads, so younger users need to be aware. Aside from that, the site features a lot of users to search through. There are a wide variety of age ranges, countries and interests, so there is bound to be someone here to chat with.
Those are just four of the many Kik friend finder websites, but they’re less buggy or intrusive than many of the others. Each features thousands of users, so there will definitely be someone online to chat with!
