But that’s not it; not only you can connect with friends and family but you can also make new friends by using these services and apps. Social media is a great way to connect with new people but that is not a smart way, because you cannot possibly know whether the other person is interested in you or not.

Badoo is one of the most famous and widely used dating app and service used by millions of people all over the globe. Dating apps are quite different than social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, because these dating services and app encourages you to talk and connect with strangers but on the other hand social media websites especially Facebook has a strict policy about it. Badoo is available for several different mobile platforms including iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Following is a guide on how to use Badoo to connect with other people and find a date.

In your profile, you can also provide other information like your interests, “about me”, relationship status and other things as well. It is better to make a detailed profile. Here is a simple trick; you can update your profile on Badoo app but app works slower while updating the profile.

If someone is harassing you then you can easily block that person by tapping on “block”. There is an interesting feature in Badoo app which is called “Encounters”, this particular feature shows images of different users who match your interest and profile, below every image it shows three buttons “Yes”, “May be” and “No”. If you like that particular picture and user then tap on Yes, if don’t then tap on “No’ and if you are not sure and want to skip that user then you can tap on “May be”.

    I think people use these websites and apps for flirt, otherwise they don’t have positive impact on our lives. “Make new friends” bullshit.
