Team Croissants present Just Friends
Match friends in your area by mutual interests.
Just Friends is a react js app designed to connect people with others who have the same interests and passions in the local area. This can be a great way to make new friends when new to an area and become part of the community.
We decided to put the user into groups, as opposed to 1-2-1, both for safety reasons and for an overall more comfortable experience. Being 1-2-1 can be quite intense, and there is not a guarantee you will connect with that individual, but being in a group can provide more opportunities to create a connection and create friendship groups.
We came up with the idea as when one of our members first moved to London, they knew no-none here, and were quite intimidated by the idea of meeting new people. Something like this would have made it much easier to meet like-minded people.
