Βadoo Profile

Badoo started in London in 2006 and is largely meant to be one of the international social networking sites. The country that has utilized Badoo the most is Brazil. It was introduced to the U.S. in early 2012. Like many other social network sites, you have several options to filter through interests and types to find someone to befriend, date or chat with on Badoo. The advanced filter allows you to pick a range of ages and distances from where you live. Badoo performs well at finding people for you to connect with locally. On the advanced filter, you can look for more specific traits like body type, kids, education and star sign. This is very specific, but we found that it does not provide any networking outside of dating. Today, the service has over 149 million members in 180 countries.
