Social Media Networking Sites
Badoo is a multi lingual social networking website. It is gaining popularity in emerging markets like Russia and Brazil. The site allows users to create profiles, send each other messages, and rate each others profile pictures at no cost. However, features that are designed to make user profile more visible to other users are provided at a cost. Badoo includes geographic proximity feature that identifies users locations based on analysis of their network connection. This lets users know if there are people near their current location who may wish to meet.
