Zoosk.com: Login and See How it Works!
Originally designed as Facebook app, Zoosk.com has grown into a successful online dating site which gets 250,000 Australian members yearly. The search function is quite simple, but it allows for filtering to help you find the kind of partner you want. When you login, creating a profile doesn't take long and you can upload a photo immediately. Once done, you'll see all of the singles you want and can browse their profiles.
What Kind of Singles Use Zoosk?
It's clear that the singles on Zoosk tend to be a lot younger. There are a lot of people on here who go all the way up to the late thirties and early forties. There are also a couple of older members, though the general age for female members is 25 and for male members 27. Younger people are therefore in the majority.
Can you use Zoosk free?
Zoosk has a lot of free features to begin with. Signing up, creating a profile and using the Zoosk Flirt Carousel is all free of charge. You can also search for members and look at profiles. In order to communicate, though, you're going to have to pay a subscription (of which there are several).
One of the good things about Zoosk is its useful and easy integration into social networks such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Hi5, as well as its mobile app.
