Panion Brings New Friends Together With 'Gatherings' Feature

Sweden is consistently voted one of the least friendly countries for expats. It is a common complaint from expats in Sweden that the local culture can be hard to acclimatise to. Many expats claim that it is a challenge to feel at home in the country. However, Sweden is not the only country seen as 'cold', and expats are not the only community to feel the need for connection.

Panion is aiming to solve the epidemic of loneliness not just in Sweden, but across the world and we're now 50,000 users strong.

Panion is the “Common Interest App” that helps connect like-minded people and bring together new friends with mutual interests, for platonic relationships.

Panion works differently than other similar apps. Panion's design and algorithm allow users to search for new friends by keyword - avoiding the sea of endless swiping.

Panion has also introduced a new feature to help you more easily reach out and connect with potential friends. We're proud to announce ' Gatherings '! Gatherings allow users to create spontaneous events and activities and share with existing, new friends, or with communities of people.

Say you're craving a game of beach volleyball, in just a few steps you can set up a time, date, and place for a game and let the new friends join in the fun.

Panion was born as CEO and founder, Melanie Aronson, an expat in Sweden herself, felt the loneliness and struggle of living abroad and decided to do something about it.

“It's hard to find time adjusting to an entirely new culture and way of life while also finding the energy to actively find new friends. While I've managed to find a lot of acquaintances, finding deeper connections has been tough, ”explains Melanie.

“I want our users to go anywhere and almost effortlessly find new friends who share common interests like a hobby or a lifestyle, similar educational interest, travel or food preference, sports, or even favorite movie genre. Our app will help you do that! "

About Panion:

Panion is based in Malmö, Sweden and the app launched on December 6, 2017. Panion can be downloaded free for iOS and Android.
