What does BADOO mean?
- Badoo is a dating-focused social networking service, founded in 2006, which uses deceptive tactics to attract new users. It is managed out of its Soho, London headquarters but owned by a company based in Cyprus, which is ultimately owned by Russian entrepreneur Andrey Andreev. The site operates in 180 countries and is most popular in Latin America, Spain, Italy and France. Badoo ranks as the 136th most popular website in the world, according to Alexa Internet. A Cambridge University study laments the website's lax privacy practices. A Finnish newspaper has reported that numerous Badoo profiles have been created without people's consent. And Daniel Stuckey warns about the website's contact-scraping practices. He explains that, in certain cases, "the site sends messages to all email addresses it can find through your accounts, with minimal consent, promising that a message from you awaited them at the other end."
