The website Uloop has recently published a write up about Skout’s survey. In the article from Uloop, the writer mentions a few different statistics that Skout has accumulated during their research phases. They have been surveying 2,700 of their users. They found that college students are 51 percent likely to do a random act of kindness every day. Also, 93 percent of college students have already done a random act of kindness. Could this mean that the nature of youth and friendship is strongly intertwined?
