Although it is very true that millions of people use the Kik messenger app to find their friends, it is also true that many other people also like to use it at least in part to chat to new people. There are literally millions of Kik messenger users located in dozens of different countries all around the world.
So finding people to chat with is not difficult as long as you know how to do it. And this is where we come in, for in this article we will walk you through all you need to know in order to find random people on the Kik messenger app.
There are many ways of finding people to chat with on the Kik messenger app but if you do not really know how to do this trying to find someone can be really frustrating. So, just read on and you will find out how to do this in a productive way.
Why Is the Kik Messenger App the Best Way to Find Random People to Chat With?
“There are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t yet met”- William Butler Yeats
Before we go into the different ways in which you can find or message people to chat in Kik with on this particular instant message and let’s talk a little bit about what makes it the ideal vehicle for this.
The Kik messenger app is, as you probably know, one of the most popular applications office kind not only in the United States, in Europe (Including the United Kingdom), but also in many different world regions.
Also Kik messenger users are among the most active they are so it is potentially very easy to find people to chat with at any time of day and night because of where the users are located in because how active they tend to be. Of course there is always a chance that you will find random users that are no longer active. People who, for one reason or another, have stopped using the app but never bothered to deactivated so their user names are available in theory but when you try to chat with them you get absolutely no return. So this is one thing to watch out for when you are trying to find random people.
But this is not just why it is the best app to chat random people or, if you prefer, meet new people and make new friends. Yes, it is important that the app is so well received and so widely available but this is not the only reason behind it.
Another really big reason why the app is so good for talking to new people is because of the way in which he keeps its users privacy, well, private. This may seem like an odd thing to say because after all do all the other instant message platforms available not keep their users’ privacy? Well, of course they do but in order to use them you need to give out some of your personal details, which is not the case with the Kik messenger app.
For example, WhatsApp requires its users to share their own telephone numbers in order to chat with each other, or Facebook Messenger requires its users to not only have Facebook profiles but also to share this with the people they chat with (in fact, if you use Facebook Messenger you can only chat with other people that have Facebook messenger and, depending on your own and their privacy settings, you may only be able to chat with people you have “friended”). This is not the case at all with the Kik messenger app. All you need to know in order to chat with anybody else is their user name.
What this means is that as long as you know someone’s Kik username (or you were able to guess it), you will be able to chat to him or her directly (unless, of course, they have blocked you for whatever reason, which is impossible if you have never spoken with them before). It is now easier than ever to chat to people because you do not even need to know they are specific user name, you can just scan their Kik Code, which would at them directly into your chat lists.
This avoids any misunderstandings is way too many people use very similar user names so it is very easy to potentially type in the slightly wrong user name and end up chatting to the wrong person. Although, you never know, you might enjoy talking to this new random person or anonymous people a lot more than you would have done with the person you originally intended to chat with.
The question, of course, is how do you get a hold of someone’s user name or their Kik code. This is exactly what we will address in the next section, so please read on.
What Are the Most Effective Ways Of Finding People?
As we said earlier there are many ways of doing this. Basically the ultimate goal is to find user names or, even better, Kik codes. But, how can you go about doing this?
Here is a list of options that we will go over:
- Social media
- Third-party apps and websites
- Typing in random names or words on Kik
Well, one of the best ways is to actually head over to social media. If you use the right hash tags (something like “Kik girls” or simply “Kik”) in social media outlets such as Twitter or Tumblr, you should get lots of hits with Kik messenger users share in their Kik user names and/or their Kik codes. The key is using hash tags. When using this method it is also important that you check when the posts where originally made because it is always better that you just add people who have posted their user names as recently as possible. Otherwise, you might end up trying to chat with someone or having conversations with people who is not online open (perhaps even someone who sent a very distant time zone).
There are also many different third-party websites where you can find different kinds of users to talk to. You can find totally random people or you could specify information such as age, location, gender, and another thing to narrow down your search. One of the most popular websites of this kind is Kik community. The most important thing to take into account if you are thinking of using one of these web sites is that you will need to register by creating your own account and share in some personal information and, of course your user name. In other words, you will not be able to use any of those web sites or find anybody to chat with on them unless you sign up yourself.
This means that other people may end up chatting with you so you may find that you get lots of chat requests from random people. Of course, if you are reading this article this might be exactly what you are looking for. So this is definitely one of the best ways of finding people and being found by people, which amounts to pretty much the same thing. The only problem is that you need to sign up to a third-party service, which you may or may not be comfortable with.
There is another very simple way or option of finding people. This is such a simple way of finding people that most of you probably not even thought about it. It is often the case when something is very simple and really obvious it becomes hard to notice. Have you ever tried just to enter any random use their name on the Kik messenger app and see who you get? You might be thinking that it might be quite hard to guess someone’s user name, but this is not really were talking about here.
You do not really need to know someone’s full user name in order to find them on the instant messaging app. Because Kik messenger uses some form of predicting text if you just enter part of someone’s username you will get not only this but also any other user names containing the same characters. So, a good way to start is by just entering part of any user name that you may already know (including, why not, your own) and see what comes up.
If you just randomly enter something on the search bar on Kik messenger, you will for sure find lots of new random people to talk to. This method is very hit and miss because you never know if the users you find are still active or, indeed, available right that moment. Having said that, even if you find people who are not available at that time they may very well become available at some later point. So, you have really nothing to lose by trying to find people that way.
