Badoo was launched in 2006, by a small international group of young, forward thinking programmers and tech entrepreneurs. Their vision was to use the most advanced technologies available to create an elegantly modern, fast and easy way for people to meet new people in their area - and have fun doing it. Now, they succeeded. Badoo now becomes the largest Social Network for Meeting New People locally in the world. 117 million members are already connected and more than 100,000 new members join every day. Badoo is not only the largest, but also the fastest growing Social Network for Meeting New People globally.
The look and feel of the Badoo is quite exciting with vibrant colors and an eye catching layout. Colors used on the site is a mixture of grey, blue and orange. Registration is also a unique feature of this site and not found in other dating or social sites. People with facebook accounts need not sit through the registration form or upload any photos. The website will pick the necessary information from your facebook account. For new registrations the site requires you to fill all the details such as about yourself, interest and other personal information. The user can add up to 100 photos and videos on the badoo website and categorize them into various albums. Uploading of the photo can be done from your computer and from websites internal camera (which can take some time to get activated), or even from other site like orkut, facebook and photobucket.
Messaging feature on Badoo is free but it seems to be incomplete as some of the mail features are missing. For example, you can't send a message when the person is off line. Sending gifts is not free and you need to pay and buy credit points that can cost you from $10 to $40. The other features of the website includes a blog and there doesn’t appear to be any other prominent features that makes Badoo more interactive.
