It appears the developers are working hard to make sure its users are treated with fairness and respect.
For instance, this person's profile uses terminology and size preference usually associated with fat fetishes: No one is judging people with a fat preference; however, the point of this app is for people to find a relationship, not to be fetishized.There are plenty other sites and apps for people who share the fetish.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.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.
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.
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.
This can lead to people finding you on other platforms, as a fellow journalist had described to me they were doing for their story on the app.
