The “Social Dating” Revolution has Arrived: Badoo.com Surpasses 100m Users, by Mixing Social Networking and Online Dating

Dr. Dato’s Brief:

The article talks about a rising star badoo.com which claims to have found a way of connecting online dating with the social media (ie. facebook). You will find a review of this site in our Free Dating Site Reviews.

The claims made seem like astonishing figures ie. surpassing 100 million users which I would think is a bit of an exaggeration. However, when checking its ranking in terms of traffic it stands at a creditable position of 565 sandwiched comfortably between dishnetwork.com and job.com.

Also, you need to be aware how websites can turn the figures to their advantage. For example 100 million users does not mean 100 million users signed up and this can be confirmed by the large counter on their site which clearly says ‘people are already here!’

badoo.com - many users but probably fewer members!

Online Dating Briefs by Dr. Dato - Taking Online Dating to the Next Level


Monday, January 31st, 2011

Article Subject: Taking Online Dating to the Next Level

Article Link: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2011/01/12/prweb4955394.DTL

Website: http://www.needarealdate.com/

Dr. Dato’s Brief:

This article talks about a new site ‘Needarealdate.com’and claims that although there are many dating sites out there, the new site has much better interactive features. My take is what good is a highly interactive website when its new and has limited number of member base? How are you going to get those dates, having interactive sites will not get you those dates, unless they have a dating guru that magically formulates your ideal partner.

I checked out the site and couldn’t see anything that would entice me to sign-up, but you may give it a try.

Needarealdate.com - Sure if there were enough members!

Login & Customizing Profiles
Similar to other dating sites you will also need email/username and password to login to your matchmaker account. But whenever I tried to login using my email address it showed me “Invalid login”, so login with my email address is not working at all.

Once you have logged in, you can see the all the menus positioned at the top of the website. so the dater simply needs to go there to search for dates and customize his or her matchmaker account.

At the right side of the website you can view site activities such as; about new members within the last week, gift sent or received, who’s on IM (instant messenger), people who viewed you or viewed by you. This can all be found the home page after login.

In the edit profile section you can also set basic details about his or her and the partner you are looking for in terms of personality, hobbies, activities, appearance and lifestyle. You can also mention you favorite TV program and movies.
