Part 1: The high-minded theory Badoo is a social site, but it's no Facebook.I would say my conversation with Andreev and Powell went well.
Immediately after signing on, with no photo or information in my profile, I was told that four women wanted to talk with me, one of whom was 382 miles away. I was a blank box with nothing but an age and a location.Such features include the 'selfie request' button, through which women can request a man they're speaking to send a 'selfie' to prove they are the same person as in the pictures.Badoo also has a photo verification process, where users upload a photo of themselves mimicking a specific pose. But neither is Badoo, strictly speaking, a dating service, according to CEO Andrey Andreev and CMO Jessica Powell. Where Facebook is the network of your friends (even if you define "friend" loosely), Badoo is a network for friends yet to be.
