Badoo is a dating website where users can chat, date and meet with people online.
Headquartered in Soho, London, Badoo is free for everyone, but users can choose to pay for premium features.
On the freemium service, users can chat, upload photos and post videos. The ‘People Nearby’ feature lets users see and contact people who are in their area, whereas the ‘Search’ features lets users contact people in a different part of the world.
‘Encounters’, another free feature, is a game where user’s click yes or no on other people’s photos – similar to Tinder. If two users click yes on one another’s photo, they are matched and notified by Badoo.
