If you're bored of using existing social media websites and want something fresh then you might want to consider checking out LINK - with people nearby, an iPhone and iPad app with an emphasis on connecting with people in your local area.
The thing I love about this app is that it focuses on helping you to meet people locally so that you can get out and actually meet them rather than being stuck behind a keyboard or on your iOS device all the time!
Making a highly worthy entry into the Social Networking category of the App Store is this excellent utility that will make it easier than ever for you to make new friends and find like-minded individuals in your local area.
With this app you can use your device's integrated GPS to see how far people are from your current location before inviting them to chat with you to share common interests and hopefully spark some new relationships.
Find friends locally
Strike Up Some Rapport
LINK - with people nearby includes voice and video messaging as well as amusing stickers to keep your conversations light and animated, so this is great for building rapport with members before meeting them in real life.
What's more, this app features some awesome group functions which means that you can either join an existing group or create your own one based on shared interests and niche hobbies, or just people who live within a certain locality.
