According to a new survey by Skout, the secret to a happier day might be meeting someone new.

  • 64% of people who are "very happy" say they meet someone new everyday.
  • 23% of people say they are more productive at work after talking to someone they've just met. 
  • 60% of people are more flattered by a compliment they receive from a stranger versus someone they know.

Men and women say when they meet someone new, they are in a better mood for the rest of the day. 

Unhappy people say they meet someone new only once a month.

The survey had to ask about Pharrell William's song "Happy," and 62% of people say the song does make them feel happier.

So Monday on our Facebook page we are asking you, what's the one thing that makes you happy?  Does meeting new people make a difference in how happy you will be on a daily basis?'
