If you think that online dating platforms are hard to understand and use, then perhaps you haven’t signed up with Badoo.
Badoo makes it very easy for users to sign up and use its features. You can choose between answering a couple of simple questions or use the existing social media and network accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, MSN, Vkontakte, Odnoklassniki, Yandex, and Mail.Ru.
If you wish to register manually, you need to, first, select your gender, followed by your goal in joining the website (date, chat, or make new friends). If you wish to date, you have to select whether you want to date a boy, girl, or both. After that, you fill out a form that asks for your first name, birth date, location, and e-mail address. Wait for the verification code to be sent to your registered e-mail address.
After you have signed in, you can now build your profile. The system will ask you to import contacts from any of the e-mail platforms: Outlook, Gmail, and Yahoo. You can also use a customized e-mail. The next step is to upload your photo, where you’re given two options: use those found in your social media account or upload from your computer. You can also skip any of these steps or complete them later. In the main page, you can complete your profile details.
Badoo offers a feature called Encounters, which is the first one you see after you’ve completed the profile. It’s actually a form of a game where the system generates profile pictures of your preferred gender to date and geographical location. You then have the opportunity to either dismiss or like the profile. Narrowing or customizing your search is easy and fast since you don’t have to click on any Search tab. Just pick your options found the left-hand side of the page. These include users near your location, age, and gender.
The website also offers a premium feature that allows you to know who voted for or liked you—or at least your profile—further streamlining your possible choices.
The website offers standard communication services such as chats and e-mail. Under the latter, though, Badoo has another feature, where, for a few credits, your e-mail appears on top of that from non-paying members. The credits can also let you receive notifications whether your messages have been received by the other party, saving you a lot of time from guessing if the other person is interested to interact with you.
The design of the website doesn’t appear as elegant as other popular dating platforms such as Match.com and Harmony.com. However, it makes up for it with the ease of navigation in every page and properly labeled menus and icons. The chances of getting lost within the website are very low, and since the interface is simple, new users of varying ages will have a smaller learning curve.
Badoo offers a special credit system called Super Powers. You can accumulate credits when you do certain things on the website such as uploading a photo, or you can buy them using your credit card or PayPal, as well as through its mobile app. These credits can then be used to unlock the different Super Powers that provide a huge advantage to paid members including new member alerts, secret profile viewing, in-depth search ability, access to popular users of the website, and chance to get more information from other users.
Registration is completely for free, and some of the features are also usable by non-paid members. However, to make the most of the website, you are encouraged to build your credit usually by buying them. You can also become a VIP member, which grants you access to all of the Super Powers. The fees as of this time are:
1 month = $9.99
3 months = $24.99
6 months = $34.99
1 year = $59.99
Badoo is a great place to meet new friends or future short- and long-term partners for anyone who’s new to online dating websites because of the simplicity of its interface and process of registration and matchmaking. Although many of its features are premium, they appear to be considerably cheaper than those of its competitors.
