Starting in the US in 2007, pill they know a thing or two about online dating and what works. Chat online and video chat are just two of the options for communicating with potential matches.
Creating a Profile
It’s relatively straight forward to create a profile. It takes about 20 minutes to answer the basic profile questions and upload some photos; you’ll receive a verification email and you’re ready to start meeting others online. Once your profile is set up, you officially become what’s known as a ‘Zoosker.’
With all good online dating websites comes the compatibility question section. Zoosk is no exception with a range of questions to answer, resulting in higher compatibility matches found for you. These questions are optional, but are highly recommended.
There are a range of search functions and ways to find potential matches. You can choose to search based on your selected criteria, play the Carousel – a quick way to view photos and there are matches delivered daily via email.
Zoosk’s Scientific Matchmaking Service (ZSMS) will deliver a match to two they have found to be an ideal match with the ability to vote on the other’s profile within 24 hours.
It’s free for initial communication, e.g., send a wink. After that, you have to pay if you want to take communication past that first introduction.
- Send a ‘mega flirt’ with one of the pre-selected questions or a message that simply says ‘Hi.’
- Instant messenger.
- Video chat.
- Send a virtual gift.
- Synchronise your social media. E.g. Facebook.
- iPad and Android app.
- Flirt on the Go / text message service.
- Carousel – spin the wheel and see who comes up – simply click Yes, No or Maybe as the Carousel whizzes through a range of profiles that have been determined to possibly suit you. If you both choose ‘yes,’ you’ll receive a notification.
- Zoosk Coins is their virtual currency. Once you partake in varying activities, e.g. answer questions, have a go on the Carousel, install or like Zoosk on Facebook, you’ll earn coins which can be used to buy virtual gifts to send to a potential match. Coins can also be purchased.
- Boost – If you want more attention, choose to boost your profile so it’s promoted and viewed more promptly in the search results.
- Every time someone views your profile, you receive an email notification. (However, this can be turned off.)
- The mega flirts are extremely cheesy.
