Swipe and you will find
“It’s only natural for many of us to be afraid of being rejected, which is why we’re sometimes too shy to go out and meet new people,” he says. “With Paktor, you don’t experience rejection because you and your match are the only ones who know that you’ve made a connection, and you’re in control of whether you want to find out more about the other person.”
Proving to be a fuss-free, user-friendly smartphone application, Paktor has a simple two-click registration/confirmation process that utilizes the user’s existing Facebook account, thus giving freedom to new users to immediately begin browsing for new friends. No need for age-old sign-up pages requesting a user’s personality traits, likes and dislikes and what they were looking for in a person.

“The beauty of Paktor is that you can safely and anonymously view the profiles of other members and keep swiping until you find someone interesting. If that person also found your profile interesting, then you’ll be alerted that you’ve found a match! Now you have the option to start chatting privately with that person on the Paktor app to get to know him or her better,” adds Phua. “If you swipe right to ‘like’ another user, that person must also ‘like’ you back before a match is made. Once the match is made, a chat room pops up connecting the two users. This guarantees a certain level of privacy and so users are not bombarded with unwelcome messages.”
“We will also make sure to tailor the Paktor experience to the needs of Filipino users, and we’re lining up a number of exciting online and on-ground activities that our Filipino community will be sure to enjoy,” says Monique Espino, managing director of Marketing for the Philippines.
