For our mutual protection, Zoosk uses third party services to analyze accounts for potential fraud.
Zoosk coins offer a few ways of amping up your profile to get more attention, such as a "Boost" where your profile moves to the top of the search results, buying virtual gifts to send to other members, or finding out if and when someone has read your profile or email.
"Liking" Zoosk on Facebook or installing the cell phone app get you coins, as do daily raffles for logging in and filling out partner offers such as memberships with Net Flix.
So, for me, this was a search radius of 80 kilometers and men five years younger than me and ten years older than me.
If you'd rather see a larger list of folks rather than one profile at a time, just click on the button that looks like a chess board, and your view will instantly change.
You don't have to fill out any profile details other than the bare basics, and really, your picture is what really counts here.
Or, you can buy coins via Pay Pal, a bank transfer or your cell phone starting at for 50 coins.
In addition to the features mentioned above, Zoosk also connects to Facebook and several email programs, working similarly to a social networking site by "finding" your friends.
At Zoosk, we're a team of passionate individuals that value collaboration, respect, innovation, and achievement.
Our employees love a challenge, are always looking for the next big thing, and enjoy having fun together.
