Datebid Limited is a privately-held company based in the U.K. that operates a unique app merging social gaming and online dating activities. Based on a date auction format to win webcam dates, the game allows 15 second video flirts by bidders for random silly questions to add to the fun. Datebid is entertaining for both single and non-single users, as friends of singles can leave short video secrets about their friends, silently watch and advise their friend's webcam 'dates', or even become popular date advisers charging Datebid points for their advice. Datebid is designed for all members of one's social circle to participate for fun and even charitable causes.
Datebid is currently self-funded, and is available on the Facebook platform (http://apps.facebook.com/datebidgame) with over 4.2 million profiles and 38,000 active members. It is one of the few games to accept Facebook Credits for its in-game points currency, and has conducted successful celebrity charity auctions for non-profits in Q4/Q1. Releasing new features regularly as beta trials, Datebid has attracted the interest of Facebook's fastest growing markets overseas while keeping a low profile to date in the social media business world and investor communities.
Officially launched April 2010, the company has seen over 2400% growth in adoption, while the patent pending full game features are scheduled to be released H1 2011. Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] for any inquiries.
