Being a visual dating site that praises aesthetics, this is the ultimate site that is used by people who are overly fond of taking selfies. Badoo was launched back in 2006 and was prevalent on other social media. However, due to immediate success, it was launched as a solo project in 2012 and has been a success ever since, amassing about 350 million users worldwide until now. This sexting app uses your location to pin down people close to where you are and then lets you get in touch with them, either for a casual hangout or sexting.
Some standard features that Badoo provides are parallel to those of other sexting apps. Let's look at a few!
1) Search tab: Regardless if the user is a one or is paying for the service, he/she is allowed to utilise this facility to search for people based on particular criteria.
2) Messages: Each free user gets '10 free messages' a day that they may send out to people they are generally curious about. Being virtually better than nothing, they can be used to reach out to people who you've selected based on your preferences.
Additional features that Badoo has that can be used by paid users, which makes it different than other sites, are as follows.
1) Spotlight:This enables you to have your profile 'highlighted' whenever a person goes to the search tab. Keep in mind that this is limited to the locality you are in.
2) Purchasing credit: You can purchase credit while avoiding full membership status which will give you access to the aforementioned feature.
3) Superpowers: This feature enables you to get more information about a user you're interested in. The cost is accounted for using credits.
4) Profile Scores: This feature enables other users to rate your profile picture, which is the simplest way of feedback and your ultimate chance of success.
5) Lookalikes: This feature enables you to highlight which feature about a person you're interested in and when searching, it will only present users who have the said feature.
All payments are secure and can be made via credit card, PayPal or mobile phone. Credits can be used as an alternative to being a paid member to access features.
