Badoo is a place to meet new people in your area and around the world. It?s packed with users who want to chat, maybe even meet up, and share experiences, interests and friendship, share photos, maybe even date. You can also tell people about your interests and who you are, and play games that let you meet new people. You never know who you?ll find on Badoo. But that’s where some risks come in as well, because some users have other intentions and interpretations of ‘fun’. Although the Badoo platform asks their users to ‘ play nice’, bad things happen.
