Finding new friends if you are new to skype

Tourist

So if the friendship posts have been blocked to beginners, what are the newbies supposed to do to find new friends on skype???

 

It makes no sense blocking everyone and giving access to the people who most probably have many contacts already. Skype used to be a place to make new friends as well as keep in touch with old ones.

 

Guess what I am asking is how do I go about making new friends on skype?

Skype's core functionality is communication on different channels. For finding new contacts based on common interest or other topics there are great services on the internet already. Best to find your contacts there and exchange Skype contact details when you feel comfortable.

Again: Skype is a tool for bringing people closer, but not for meeting new people. I recommend browsing sites and discussions forums with people sharing your interests. You will eventually find other participants there that want to continue the conversation on Skype. That's when you exchange your Skype contact details.

To find new friends by Skype is my reason I open account, but seems more difficult to access.....specially now that YM and Live Messenger are going for Skype features? Hope Skype made it possible to everyone
