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!’
