Using the Meetero


This document will explain how to use this service as a social media to meet new people and the implications involved in the way it largely differ from a typical and simple dating site.

Meetero, a Social Media to Meet New People and Implications

Meetero is very different with respect to a typical dating site you may find today. In a special manner:

  • It is the only site that does not favor one gender over the other. We do not force men to receive positive votes from women so that they can contact them and at the same time we guarantee that women feel well because we care about discouraging men that are not serious, abusive or unpleasant. How we do that? Well, this is one of our secret sauces.
  • It is the only site that does not oblige the user to a certain type of use, you are not forced to look for partners and much less nearby. On Meetero, you can look for who you want, where you want and for whatever reason you want. Meetero is especially perfect for travelers and anyone who would like to meet people in unusual places will find a perfect fit. But it is still a suitable tool to meet nearby people.
  • Also, Meetero is the only place that has no interest in showing you ads to the point of boycotting the very purpose of users. A typical dating site doesn't really care if you find what they are looking for, but, rather, in keeping you on site as long as possible, so you will see ads. Money is certainly important to us, but not to the point to make advertising our main goal. Our mission is helping users to find the people they are looking for. And this will never change. It is so by design, by business model, since the beginning.
  • Meetero is the only site whose assistance and moderation are mostly human. We automate only a few basic, obvious aspects, but we know perfectly well that fake profiles, spam and abuses are the death of most social sites, therfore we are strongly interested in fighting it. For this reason we target the human contribution, and apart from the automatic systems, we have employees who are paid just to maintain the order and the quality of our service.
  • Meetero is probably the only site to meet people that uses a sophisticated, multi-layered ranking system (including artificial intelligence), ensuring that the user always gets the best results for every search he or she performs. While the details of these systems are obviously a secret, they are well described along this page and the other public and legal pages of this website/app.
  • Finally, Meetero is not really a dating site. It is a social media to meet new people. The difference is important, although it may not seem so. Being focused more socially than commercially, its purpose is broader, involving more use cases than a more constrictive commercial dating site, only interested to invading you with ads or charging you with uncomfortable monthly subscription fees. The usual dating sites would not make money if they gave you the same freedom that only a true social media to meet new people may provide.

So what are the best uses cases and the best way to use it so to ensure the maximum benefit and success rates for users?

The original, initial purpose of our website / app was the frequent traveler, who visits many places for a short or a moderately long time and who knows nobody in these places. Notice that the “place” is not necessarily a foreign country. It may be a new city in your own country, a new social circle, a vacation place, or you may be interested to meet someone coming from any of these places. In general, we call this “the unusual context scenario”. And this is more common for men than women. The other face of this scenario are local people wanting to know new people from different places. This scenario is more common for women, and this would complete the picture.

Another typical use case is meeting nearby people. This is the only scenario that is common to all the dating sites around. As Meetero is a general purpose meeting social media, it is also suitable to be used that way, since it is not forbidden by our rules. We call this the “meeting nearby people scenario”.

And third, you may be interested only in some kind of people. Maybe you may like to meet a lawyer or a physician, for example. You may search people by their profession or skills because you want to make a team, or you are looking for collaboration in any kind of activity. This is called the “find collaboration scenario”.

The use cases we just mentioned are the most usual, but you can use Meetero for any other possible case, as long as this does not violate our rules and our acceptable use policies and as long as this does not violate any law. Clearly we provide a social service, and we are not responsible for the consequences of misuse. For further details please refer to our terms and conditions. Also taking a look of our safety tips might be useful.

Now that you know the use scenarios, let discuss some basic rules. In order to get an account on and keep it you must:

  • Have the legal age in your country to open an account that may be potentially harmful for minors.
  • Have a valid and a working email address (by working, we mean an email that is suitable to receive a basic communication from a website without having excessive filtering or poorly configured anti-spam policies). The user must confirm his or her email address in order to go further, just like in any other website or social media.
  • Once your account is activated you still need to make it valid. You should provide the basic information needed to use our service, that is, your birth date, your country, state or region and city, your gender and what you are looking for (male, female or any). You can specify a personal ad now or later on and provide a profile picture. These latter are optional but strongly suggested. Profiles with pictures and personal ads are three time more successful. As we say in our privacy notice, birth date will not be shown on your profile, and it is just used to calculate your age, which will be shown.
  • And finally you are ready to go! Your basic account is ready. You can complete your profile any time you want, and we suggest you to do so as much as possible because profile completion is one of the ranking factors we use to rate quality users.

In general, if you want to be a successful user, you must have a complete profile, have affinity with other users and a reasonable margin of popularity, that is you should get visited, rated or contacted. What does it mean to have affinity? If your profile matches to what people search the most, you will have a greater affinity. But keep into account that people search and like different things, often opposite. Don't try to lie because you think you will have more affinity with most people. No matter who you are, you will always be more compatible with some people and less with others. Therefore, be sincere, so people having more affinity with you will eventually come first in your searches.

User ranking is not always universal. A user may have a score in your searches and a different score in another user's searches. Some scores are valid for all the users but affinity scores are always in function to the user who is performing a search. If that user has searched people like you in past searches, you will have a higher affinity score with respect to this specific user.

Obviously the details of these algorithms are secret, but they work that way. For those reasons, it is important that your profile is complete, that you log in your account often and you visit profiles, vote people, contact them and are a good user. Participation is another of our ranking and affinity calculation factors.

Finally try to get and keep a good reputation. If you bother people, if you make an unauthorized use of our website, or you violate any of our guidelines, your reputation will suffer. Some violations may involve a temporary or permanent ban or a suspension of your account. You will find more information about this in our Terms and Conditions and some others in our Policies of Acceptable Use.

But, most importantly, you are free to meet whoever you want on our website, but you can only use it to meet people. You are not allowed to use our site for other purposes, as this is clearly indicated in our Terms and Conditions.
