Badoo — a hybrid platform that is part social network and part dating site — lets you browse profiles of other Badoo users in your area and start conversations with them. You can chat on Badoo either by using the dedicated mobile app or Badoo's website.
Badoo limits the number of users you can contact each day. Increase your daily contact limit either by visiting your Badoo profile and linking your phone number, email address or other social network accounts to your Badoo account, or by purchasing a Super Powers subscription.
