How to Get More Kik Contacts

Everyday there are new chatting apps coming up but Kik is one app that has gained too much popularity over a very short period of time. However, if you are one of the users of Ki, you would know how difficult it is to find people with whom you can actually talk on Kik. Adding more and more people to your Kik contacts seems like a very big deal sometimes. But not anymore. With the detailed guide that we have given here, you can find Kik contacts in no time and stay friends with them.

Use Address Book Matching

When you use address book matching, the phone contacts that you have will automatically appear in your Kik contacts. However, you have to turn on this feature. There are many people who don’t like to be discovered on Kik by their friends or relatives and hence, it comes off by default. But if you have no issues as such, you can turn it on.

Search by Username

Searching by the Kik usernames is probably the best and the most time-saving method of finding Kik contacts. You can simply ask someone “What’s your Kik” and then add them to your Kik contacts and get going. This can happen anywhere. Whether you find a cool person in gym, or at the book store or even in the bus that you take to school every day. Don’t shy away and be direct.

Share your Profile

This is one of the most popular and most effective way of getting Kik contacts added up your list. All you have to do is share your Kik profile. This way, your existing friends would come to know about your availability on Kik and you can get along. Maybe some of the friends have some other friends which come to know about you and you get in touch with them. However, the key is to share your profile over the social media.

Sometimes, when you share your profile once, the users might miss it. If you really want to get noticed, it would be a good idea to share it more than once. Also, don’t forget to share across multiple platforms. These days, people are active on social media equally and hence, it would be good if you have as much online presence as possible.

Join the Groups

This is again the easiest way to find Kik contacts. You don’t have to actually make much efforts. Just go to the search bar of the app, type anything that has your interest and you would find a large number of public groups dedicated to your interest. However, you should understand that just joining the group isn’t sufficient. You would need to type a few texts there to get noticed. And if you join such groups where much talking is not happening, you might want to join some more.

So, a tip here would be to join as much groups as possible and then be active in the groups. If someone asks a question in the group, jump in to answer it. Or if someone is asking for advice, you can give them an advice. But this will only work if you have a genuine knowledge of the subject which is being talked about in the group.

Create a Group Yourself

Sometimes, you cannot find a group of your interest. In such a case, it would be a very good idea to start a group of your own and just leave it on people to join the group. This would increase your number of Kik contacts very quickly but you have to do it right. Make sure that you give a proper name to the group that you create. Also, have meaningful conversations in the group so that people who join can actually take part in the conversations. If you get them bored, they would leave anyway.

Finding Kik Contacts via Apps

Now since you are finding new friends via the chatting apps online, wouldn’t it be a good idea if you could just find Kik contacts online as well? Without much effort? Well, we think that would be pretty amazing. So, what you can do is install some of the Kik contact finder apps on your phone and get going. These apps generally have filter categories. So you can choose if you want to find Kik girls, Kik boys etc. Also, you can give location and age filters so that you do not get unwanted Kik contacts lined up.

An alternative to the Kik contacts finder apps is Kik contacts finder websites. Both operate in the same way. However, we have found that the Kik contacts finder websites are generally more popular. And it is a good idea to use Kik on your phone while you are looking for contacts over your PC. Switching between screens is not everyone’s cup of tea.

What are Kik Groups and how you can be a part of them?

Kik groups are nothing but chat rooms where people of similar interests can talk and share their views. This is not like a normal chat but a group chat where there would be more than two participants. Before the term public group came in, the Kik groups were popular by the name hashtags and it was then that people were crazy about it.

If you have an interest, for example, you are interested in Pokémon Go. And you want to look for other people who are interested in Pokémon Go, all you have to do is, type #PokemonGo in the search bar and see the magic. You would see a group with similar name and you can just jump into the conversation.

Public and Private Kik Groups

There are two types of Kik groups. The public ones and the private ones. When a group is public, anybody on the Kik platform can jump in and join the group. However, if you want only a particular set of friends to join the group and don’t want any interference, you can go for a private group. Keep in mind that when you create a private group, you have full control over the group. You decide who joins and who does not.

However, if you think you can do just about anything in public groups, you are wrong. There are certain community standards set by the Kik community and you have to be complaint to them. Otherwise, Kik might ban you from the groups. And if get banned very often, they might take some serious action against you. Better play safe and go through the community guidelines.

What you can do with Kik Groups

  1. Though there is a limitation on the number of groups you can create at a time, you get awesome features when you join groups. It is an amazing experience, so make sure you live it. Within a time period of 24 hours, you can create as many as 3 groups. To create a 4th group, you need to go beyond 24 hours.
  2. You can create a group of your interest. And then wait for people to join the conversation.
  3. You can search for a group and then join the discussion.
  4. When you join a group and start a conversation, you would notice that Kik provides badges to group members. Even that is fun.
  5. If you think a group is not right or is not filling the community standards, you also have the power to report it to the Kik community. And if it is your group and someone is not behaving, you can report group members as well.

How to Start a Private Kik Group

A private Kik group is where the owner has full control over who joins and who doesn’t. So, if you want such a group, follow the below steps to create it.

  1. First of all, go to the + icon.
  2. Then, click on the “start a Group” button.
  3. You will get an option to add which friends you want in the group. You can make multiple selection here. Just tick the friends you want and leave the rest.
  4. Though it is not mandatory, you can choose a group picture and a group name.
  5. On the top right, there would be a “start” button. Just tap on it.
  6. And voila, the private group is ready. Happy private texting!

How to Start a Public Kik Group

The basics of starting a private and public group are same. The difference comes only when you have to select who joins the group. So, follow the below steps if you want to start a public group on Kik.

  1. First of all, click on the + icon.
  2. Then, choose the option “Public Groups”.
  3. Again, tap the + icon.
  4. Then again you get the option to select a picture and the name for the group. We would advise you to add it this time because you actually want your group to appear attractive so that people can join. Also, you have to think of a # name for your group.
  5. You can invite friends you want to the group. You can also skip this step if you are not concerned what friends should join the group.
  6. Then, click on “Start”.
  7. And your public group is ready. Happy Public texting!

There is also an option to share the Kik code of the group. It is an amazing feature if you know how to use it. First of all, you have to open the group conversation and then click on the Group name. You will see an option “Show Kik code”. Click on this option. There, you would find the share option besides it. Once you share it on your profile, you friends can scan the code and join the group.
