This post covers all you should know about AfroIntroducions just in case you’re in search of African partners online. It will also help you navigate and get the best out of the platform in your quest to find that special someone.
Accessing the Platform
AfroIntroduction can’t be assessed through their website and their mobile applications. The App is available on the Google Play Store for Android users and the Apple App Store for iPhone users.
Well if you decide to use this platform, then I suggest you go for the app instead of the web version. Here are some reasons why:
- It is free to download
- It is very easy to use, convenient, and user friendly
- You can easily get notifications for every special event
- It features sending instant messages, cupid tags, recommend matches and profile acessibility from anywhere
Mostly, the app recommendation focuses on ensuring your dating experience is smooth and fun.
Starting out, you have to register with the platform whether you’re using the website or the mobile app. This is because exploring the platform is only possible when you have registered. But, not to worry, the registration is free of charge and it’s hassle-free.
On the home page, you will be invited to either join with your Facebook account or email address. It basically means that you can click on the “Join with Facebook” link, where you will be expected to log in with details of your Facebook account, or you can click on the “Join with email” link.
On the flip side, you can just fill in your details. These details will include your Gender, Gender interest, First Name, Age, Address (Country, State, and City), Email Address, and Password. Finally, Accepting the terms and conditions endorses you as a new member.
After your sign-up, the platform directs you to your dashboard, where you find initial matches. If you find any of them interesting, you will have to click on the message icon to start chatting.
Furthermore, age and gender are the basis for the initial matches. So ensuring you complete your profile and customize your search filters is pretty important. This is to optimize search for better match results.
However, it takes a day or two for the admins to approve your display pictures. it is therefore advised that you upload immediately you sign up to improve your chances and avoid being pegged as a scammer or a shady person.
To increase your chances of being noticed and taken seriously by favorable users, your profile details should be properly filled with your display picture uploaded.
Detailed information of your level of education, religion, occupation, smoking habits, drinking habits, etc. is required to improve your chances of meeting the right person.
However, you are not under compulsion to provide every detail requested on the platform. Nevertheless, not having a profile picture, no profile information, and no interaction with other users will lead to either suspension or termination of your profile on the platform.
Design and Usability
The design of the website and application is a simple and not flashy design. Maybe a little bit old-fashioned in a way, but the good thing is that it is easy to find whatever you looking for.
Also, the platform is hosted on a good server, which means it loads very fast and is reliable.
