Badoo just may be the biggest startup you’ve never heard of. It’s a social network for meeting new people (and no, that doesn’t just mean teens hooking up), and it now has over 130 million users. It’s on a $100+ revenue run rate and has been profitable for 24 months. Here are some other new figures on the company:

  • Badoo.com has 35+ million active users per month worldwide
  • 2.1 million photos uploaded daily, versus 2.72m/day for Flickr
  • 125,000 new user registrations per day
  • 7 billion page views per month
  • Average of 20 page views per visit
  • Average of 20 minutes per visit, compared to 25 minutes for Facebook
  • 55:45 Male to Female ratio (global average)
  • 33% of users aged 35+ (global average)

Wow that’s impressive.
