Badoo Features

Badoo is a freemium service, where the basic service is free for everyone but users have an option to pay for premium features. As soon as members sign up they can chat, upload photos and videos. Users can see and contact people who live in their area using the "People Nearby" feature or in a different city or part of the world using the "Search" feature. Another free feature is the "Encounters" game where users click yes or no on other users' photos and if there is a match the two users are notified. For a fee, users can use the "Rise Up" feature which allows users to pay to give their profile more visibility on the site for a limited time. Badoo's communications director Lucy George said that as of late 2007 20% of Badoo's 22 million users were paying for heightened visibility at least once a month. However, according to The Economist, by 2011 only 5% of members were paying for the premium services. It has ranked among the most popular dating websites.

There are several premium services that users can pay to use including the "rise up" feature to promote oneself higher in the search results and so attract greater attention. Users can also pay to their your profile photo more widely visible across the site. Users can also buy "Super Powers" to see more search results, who wants to meet them, and see which of their messages have been read.

There's also the "Secret comments" feature described as "anonymous, girls only" that allows women to leave comments on men they've talked to.
