The location-based service lets people connect, chat, and meet up with other people nearby.
Users sign up for free but then pay to receive a promoted status and increase the visibility of their profile. These ‘pay for promotion’ features and subscriptions are currently generating $100m a year.
Meanwhile, the 130m member number is 62 per cent up on last year.
Bart Swanson, COO of Badoo, said, “With approximately 125,000 new users signing up every day, and over seven billion monthly page views, we are continuing to grow at an impressive rate.
“We are moving beyond the constraints of internet-based friendships and long distance relationships. Badoo enables users to meet people nearby in a fast and efficient manner.”
