If you are a plus size or fat person, you know how difficult it is to date.Tinder is notorious for its users fat shaming, and this video shows how people react to their real-life dates being bigger than what they expected. It was that video that inspired Woo Plus, an app exclusively for the plus size dating community.
The photo stream section allows for a familiar social media interaction with its users, almost like an Instagram feed, where people can post pictures of themselves and chat with other users from all over the world.
While people can post back and forth publicly on the photos, unless you pay real money to send the user a "gift" (cartoon flowers or chocolates), you cannot privately message them.
This has led to a lot of people posting their But the interactions I saw were mostly positive.
Sixty-one percent of users are male, 39 percent are women, and while the app is targeted toward women, Li points to this as proof that there are men who like "all different body types." While impressive, considering the app launched in October 2015, the user base still isn't huge.
Tinder reported 50 million users with 12 million users joining every day as of 2014, and Ok Cupid reported having 12 million users in 2014.
Perhaps because Woo Plus's user base is comparatively small, there aren't enough people to make it awful — yet., people to just chat with, friendships or hookups — so pretty much the norm for dating apps.First, you can only like a few people a day, unless you invite friends to join the app, an obvious attempt at getting more users.Second, if you don't interact with the user within 48 hours of you both mutually liking each other, the "like" disappears and you lose your opportunity to talk to them, a feature that prevents endless "likes" with no contact.This is a great idea, because it's easy for us to "like" people, but starting a conversation, now that's scary.there are over 25,000 users with 2,000 new signups every day.
