When you are talking about the most popular social media networks in the world, Bumble and Badoo might not get a lot of mention yet, but that could soon change. If either network do rise to the level of something like Twitter or Facebook, make no mistake that the work that Andrey Andreev has put into it is going to be one of the bigger factors (Thetimes). 

Andreev might not be a household name himself, but he’s managed to get quite the reputation in the tech world, in large part because of the success his apps have had in a short period of time.

Bumble, in particular, is largely thought to be one of the most popular dating apps that are out there for smart devices. Also, Andrey Andreev is the founder of Badoo. It might seem easy to dismiss dating apps as nothing but fluff, but in the 21st century, when online presences are becoming all the more important, it’s hard to know just how big the impact of these services really is.

People don’t go out to mixers anymore. Singles bars are still out there, but they are rarely used by young people to truly meet a significant other. Online is where people do most of their social mingling. It should come as no surprise that a person’s dating life has a much bigger presence online as well. Badoo isn’t as well known as Andreev’s other creation but that could change soon. The website is a social network that, at first glance looks quite a bit like an offshoot of Facebook

For Andrey Andreev, the difference in the network, and what could be the hook, is that like Bumble, it’s more about meeting new people. This isn’t necessarily a site where you are going to be posting what you had for dinner. Andrey Andreev says that, instead, you might post that you are looking for someone to have dinner with. The website is geared to help you meet other people that are spending most of their time online. In providing that service, it has become clear that the site’s creator understands what people are looking for in the 21st century. Give people what they want and those services tend to get big, quick.
