Here’s what the profiles on Zoosk look like. We’ve blurred out the information, but you’ll be able to see all of that when you sign up.
We found the site super easy to use during our Zoosk reviews. There are clearly defined menus, everything is laid out intelligently, and it all looks great on mobile and your computer. Here are some of the takeaways on the ease of use of the site:
The heart and soul of the Zoosk platform is the SmartPick technology. It’s the company’s algorithm that has a pretty good track record of helping people find love. Part of taking advantage of online dating is letting technology do what it does best.
Like the swipe-style method of looking through matches? If you do, our Zoosk review revealed that the dating site has just that for you. It’s called Carousel. And you know what? It works just like Tinder but with a different dating pool.
If you like them, give them the green checkmark. If you don’t like them, give them the red X. and If you really like them, click the gold star! If two people click that they like each other, then Zoosk will let you both know. It gives new meaning to the phrase ‘clicking with someone.’
A big fear that comes with online dating is that there are going to be a lot of fake profiles. Zoosk allows singles to verify they are who they say they are through Facebook. While this system isn’t perfect, it’s way better than dating sites that do nothing.
Oh, and if you’re worried that Zoosk is going to post on your Facebook, don’t worry; that’s not going to happen. The verification is only used to make sure you are who you say you are, which will increase your success on the site.
You are able to pay a few bucks extra and get coins (known as Zoosk coins) that allow you to buy gifts for other members. No, these aren’t real gifts; they’re just digital pictures/emojis that show up on the person’s profile. While they can’t do anything tangible with the gift, it does show an added layer of interest. If you want to put yourself right in their line of sight ahead of other singles, ‘gifts’ is a nice feature to use.
Zoosk coins can be used for more than gifts; they can be used for profile boosts. This allows you to pay a few bucks and get your profile to the top of searches for a period of time. This can really help to turbocharge the number of messages you get and the number of other singles that take a look at your profile.
You’ve got two options for customer support that we found during our comprehensive Zoosk reviews-contact form and FAQs. The contact form is a bit tough to find, but it gets you in direct contact with the Zoosk customer support team. While we’d like to see a live chat or phone option, the team still does a great job of answering questions and solving issues.
And speaking of answering questions, Zoosk has one of the most expansive frequently asked questions sections to help answer all of the most common (and some obscure) questions.
