With the addition of video, daters can get creative and show off their sense of humor, their wonderfully sophisticated British accent, tennis skills, or even their twerking skills.
New York (PRWEB UK) 12 May 2016
Badoo, the world’s largest dating network, today announced the addition of video to its online dating profiles. The new video-in-profile feature allows users to determine the unique personality traits, interests and skills of potential matches by watching short video clips. Now Badoo users are able to evaluate prospective matches by more than just profile photos and descriptive language, because attraction isn’t two dimensional.
The video-in-profile feature lets users upload 15 second video clips captured directly through their iOS or Android smartphone. Each video is assessed by one of Badoo’s 5,000 moderators before being pushed live to ensure it is appropriate. Video allows users to demonstrate the way they move, speak and laugh helping to portray personality traits that do not come across in still photos.
Joey Hadfield, Badoo spokeswoman, comments, “With the addition of video, daters can get creative and show off their sense of humor, their wonderfully sophisticated British accent, tennis skills, or even their twerking skills. When you go on a date, you know within seconds if you like a person’s energy, and if you don’t, you’re still stuck there all night. Video gives you a much better feel for who people are before you agree to meet them.”
With 300 million users in over 190 countries, and 400,000 new people signing up for a Badoo experience each day, the company is the fastest growing dating platform in the world. Badoo recently hit 100 million downloads on Android, and launched Photo Verification to help eliminate catfishing and make dating safer and more efficient for users.
