Badoo is for adults only, so you must be at least 18 years of age to sign up on the website. You can easily sign up. You will have to answer a few questions. You will first need to choose if you are male or female. You will then be required to enter your first name, date of birth, location, email or phone number, as well as the desired password. You can also sign up with Facebook, Google, MSN, Vkontakte, Odnoklassniki, Yandex, or Mail.Ru. When you sign in, you can edit your profile as well as add photos and videos. You can choose whether you want to meet new people to date, chat, or just there to make new friends. The main features are People Nearby, Search, Encounters, or Video Chat. The People Nearby feature allows you to see and contact people who are nearest to you. The Search tab allows you to search for other members. The Encounters feature allows you to swipe right or left on users’ profiles. If you match with someone or vice versa, both members will be notified.
