After class one of the students asked John if he wanted to hang out after their last class of the day.
and knew since he had work over the weekend, he would not have much time to study.
John agreed without even thinking about it but realized he had midterms to study for
John decided to decline their invitation.
A few minutes after John left class, he decided to check his phone to see if he got any new notifications.
A few minutes later...
These notifications are asking him if he wants to add two nearby people with the app also installed on their phones to his friend’s list. John was even more surprised to discover that these two people are the gamer classmates that he just finished speaking to during class.
He must have received these notifications not only because they were only a few feet away from John, but because John had the app set to notify him when he passes by other users of the app who add the “gaming” tag to the “likes and interests” section on their user profiles.
John was happy that he has found a way to keep in touch with his classmates.
