This is such a useful idea, where newbies to town can get to know their neighborly hood. I designed this concept with these things in my mind. Design should be fresh, trendy, and easy to understand!
In the first screen, I have introduced a feature where people could search based on upcoming plans like going to a movie theatre, hiking, parties, and so on. Who knows you may find your fitness or even gaming partner in there too! Also, there will be a customized social feed for everyone, making it easier to know about your gang.
In the second screen, we have filer by interests, and also people who are nearby will be shown along with "Match score" based on some simple questions on how they answer... So most times, the people you find will be easy to socialize with you, as your interests will be the same!
In the third screen, we have a profile user profile where we could view their interest and also their upcoming plans like going on cycling, movies so that anyone interested could join too! You could follow them and then even send messages after...
The perfect tool to find you peeps and get to know our community better!
Thanks for reading:)
