Abstract (300 words maximum)

The digital space is continually becoming more integral to human communication and connection. Social media is the go-to medium to keep up with friends and family, and dating apps are primary sources to find dates and relationships. However, when it comes to making friends, user research revealed many issues with the current social application market, and they aren't conducive to creating offline friendships. As society continues to form connections online, a tool is needed to help easily create friendships that thrive offline. Together is a mobile application that lets users meet new people comfortably by connecting through mutual friends and shared interests. Together replicates the same decision-making process behind natural human interaction and offline introduction using an intuitive user interface. Discover more friends with the Feed that shows new friendships within your network. Profiles on Together are built to start conversations. Browse mutual friends, shared interests, and send a friend request on any profile. Messaging allows users to get introduced and make plans to meet in real life. Chat and get to know new friends, share profiles, and catch up with close friends about your growing circles. Stay in the loop. Notifications alert users about new messages, friend requests, and when users' friends become friends with one another. Together is unique because users can only meet people who have at least one mutual friend, ensuring that you can solicit a trusted opinion at any time. Together helps you discover new friends, bond over shared interests and hobbies, and grow a relationship in the real world. Together's user interface is complete with visual design, interaction, and branding. Search, Profile, Messaging, Notifications, and Feed features create a seamless user experience that can enrich lives by allowing meaningful and trusted friendships to be formed online.
