Recently PN Newswire released an insightful article that delved into how one worldwide app, known as skout is celebrating National Superhero Day in an enigmatic, inspirational way. Skout functions as a social network with an emphasis on community, and will be celebrating the larger than life holiday on April twenty-eighth by emboldening it’s users. In short, ‘skouter’s have the choice of gifting one another virtual, superhero-related presents through the app, which will used for a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The donations won’t cease until a wish has been fully financed. For one, they issued a survey asking people what they thought defined a superhero, if they, themselves – wanted to be a superhero, as well a general definition for what makes a superhero. The results were interesting and indicative of the American spirit.
It turns out that three out of four people describe superheroes as people who provide help to human beings in need, while over three-quarters of people polled stated that they, themselves had hopes of becoming a superhero. From looking at those results, it becomes plain to see that everyone, by the majority’s standard can be a superhero, the only qualifier being, that you reach out, help someone who could use a hand, and contribute to the betterment of society. Basically, if you’re a Skouter and you choose to send a virtual present to a friend, using a superhero theme, you will be helping people who can use it, and thus are a superhero, yourself, for making a difference. This is of course, according to nearly everyone. Christian Wiklund, the co-founder and CEO of Skout appears thrilled to be giving consumers this opportunity, and spreading an overall message through their social network that encourages charity and revels in the joy brought to one by simply helping others.
On another, nonetheless related note, Skout’s survey revealed that America’s favorite superhero is subjective and while men prefer Superman, women are voting for Batman. Also, Batman and Robin are people’s favorite superhero teams, people mostly hope for the superpower of immortality, having a mask is needed if you’re a superhero, and the Batmobile is the most stylish superhero automobile. At the end of the day Skout is a company who deserves recognition for truly using the powers of social media for good.
