Technology has revolutionized our lives over the years.
We live in an age where almost everything is instant and can be done using our mobile phones. They have revolutionized communications and pretty much just about everything we do.
During this global pandemic (at the time of writing), we use our mobile devices to stay online everywhere, all the time. We communicate with our friends and family who are miles away on a daily basis. However, it’s sometimes difficult not to meet and socialize with new people, or find a date on a Friday night, isn’t it?
While the use of mobile dating apps was frowned upon a decade ago, today, it’s one of the go-to platforms if you want to meet someone new. Dating apps are now one of the most stabilized markets in the world. Even if predictions state that revenue growth will slow down for this industry, online dating culture will not die down soon. With over 473 million users worldwide and growing, Badoo is a dating app that has one of the largest networks of users. Catering more to the younger generation, Badoo is known for casual dating, hookups, and flings.
Today we are going to discuss one of the most popular dating apps Badoo, and the ways on how to find matches and send messages on Badoo mobile app. If you’re interested to create an account on Badoo, stick with us to see how to do it.
Let’s get started!
How to Create an Account with Badoo Dating App
Step 1: Install the Badoo App.
- First, go to the iPhone App Store or Play Store if you have an Android phone, and search for Badoo.
- Tap the Install button and wait for the download to finish.
Step 2: Open the App and Create an Account.
After opening the app from your home screen, you have two options on how to create an account.
- Option 1: Tap your gender. Afterward, type in your name, birthday, then enter a valid email address or your phone number.
Once you’ve provided all these pieces of information, you are required to upload a photo that will be used as your profile picture.
Tap Continue once the photo upload is complete, then set a password. You also need to enter your location if you didn’t allow Badoo to access your mobile’s location.
- Option 2: Register using your Facebook account. Just tap the Facebook button and confirm the connection. The basic information and photos from your Facebook account will instantly be loaded to your Badoo account.
Step 3: Create an Attractive Profile.
Even if you use Facebook to create your profile and you’ve loaded all your basic information to your Badoo account, you should still check out how your profile looks to the viewer.
Here’s how you can do it:
- First, tap on the Profile icon in the bottom right corner.
- After that, tap the icon on the top right corner to edit your profile.
Upload some great photos or videos of yourself if you signed up via email or mobile number. If you used Facebook, the app usually loads in your profile photos. You can, however, reorganize the photos or delete the ones you don’t like to be on your Badoo profile.
The next thing you need to do is to fill in all of the information you feel comfortable sharing with other Badoo users. Put some interesting facts about yourself to increase the chances of a user to send you a message.
Lastly, connect as many personal social media accounts to make your profile more legitimate.
How to Find Find Matches on Badoo
Now that you’ve created an account, it’s time to find matches and send them messages on Badoo!
Badoo has ‘Badoo Encounters’, which is similar to Tinder’s roulette-type matching feature. It shows the users who are approximate to your location, which you need to decide whether you’re interested in that particular person or not.
You can press the heart icon ❤️ if you’re interested or the X icon if you’re not.
In the instance that you pressed the heart button who did the same action to your profile, you will receive a match notification. Both of you will now belong to each other’s Matches list and start a conversation.
How to Send Messages on Badoo
You can easily send messages on the Badoo mobile app by going to the Messages tab, which is represented by a speech bubble icon.
In this tab, you’ll find your Matches with whom you can send messages for free! Here’s how you can do it:
- First, click on the user you want to chat with.
- Start typing a message.
If you want to send a message to a user who’s not hasn’t matched with you, it’s also possible.
Simply find a user from the Search tab, which is represented by a globe icon.
Click on the user you want to message and a pop-up of their profile will appear. Below their profile picture and flirt buttons, you’ll find the space for creating a message.
Type to start a conversation and hit the white arrow with the purple circle background to successfully send your message.
