Badoo is the largest Social Network for Meeting New People locally in the world. 121 million members are already connected and more than 100,000 new members join every day. Badoo is not only the largest, but also the fastest growing Social Network for Meeting New People globally. Badoo has just begun!

Badoo was launched in 2006, by a small international group of young, forward thinking programmers and tech entrepreneurs. Their vision was to use the most advanced technologies available to create an elegantly modern, fast and easy way for people to meet new people in their area – and have fun doing it. The scope would be global, but adapted to local needs. It worked.
