Using Zoosk’s Community boards is a great way to get noticed.
Of course, Zoosk’s mission is to introduce you to singles in your local area and hook you up with potential dates, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make friends or join our Community discussions while you’re at it. During moments of downtime during your maelstrom of flirting, check out our Community boards for relevant dating tips, fun conversation, and online dating success stories from our users.
The Community is also a fun way to get to know people from all over the world. If you’re not opposed to a long distance relationship, you can even meet people on the Community boards. We’ve had it happen before! All you have to do to go to a person’s profile from the Community pages is click on their photo. The right hand side of a Community post also shows if a Zoosker is currently online, how many posts they’ve made, and how long they’ve been on Zoosk. To message a person from the Community boards, all you need to do is click the little envelope icon below their photo. See below.
Whenever you make a community post, it goes on your status feed as well, as Zoosk’s status feed that gets shown to Zooskers within your search criteria. Yet another way to get noticed — not a bad deal! We also host contests on our Community for coins and other prizes. Who doesn’t love prizes? I hope you’re convinced now that Community participation is fun! Of course, it’s totally up to you, but we’d like to to know that it’s an option, and a good one at that.

You Zooskers are a romantic bunch. We recently posed the question on our community pages, “What is your definition of love?” The responses we received were varied and astute — and simultaneously romantic and accurate.
Love, by its very nature, is almost impossible to define. Even geniuses like Albert Einstein admit their bafflement when it comes to explaining this emotional phenomenon. Love appears to resist our ability to rationalize it, as well as our attempts to tie it down to any unified definition. “How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?” asked Einstein. We don’t know either, Einstein. However, in finding love within our own lives and in choosing to participate in the act of loving, we attempt to explain love by our behaviors that characterize this emotion — one that exists within the mysterious shrouds of subjectivity. We all express and experience love differently, and it was interesting hearing your individual perceptions, lovely Zooskers, of this singular, exquisite emotion.

A picture says a thousand words. Some of the most earnest questions — and some of the biggest complaints — that we get on the Community Forums are about Zoosk profile pictures. Let’s face the facts. Pictures are an integral aspect of online dating. It should be no surprise that your fellow Zooskers want to know what you look like before they decide to date you. People do respond to things visually, and we’ve found that Zooskers who’ve uploaded photos to their date cards are many times more likely to be approached by prospective matches on Zoosk.
Taking our findings to the next logical step we can conclude with a high degree of certainty that if y = mx + b, then date card + photos = good.
You’re invited to Zoosk’s new Community Forum!
Have you ever wondered what the opposite sex really wants? Which date cards are really getting all the flirts and winks? Do you have a great story to share? It’s possible that you’ve been to Hades and back on the worst nightmare of a date. Or you may have us swooning with the story of that perfect date when you showed him or her the time of their life! Meet more Zooskers on the new Zoosk Community forum.
You can gain more visibility with direct links to your date card simply by joining in on the conversation! Let’s say you see a beautiful woman with something intelligent to say, or that guy’s sense of humor has you doing a double take at his pic. Click on their picture in the forum and go straight to their date card. Send them a flirt! You’ll have the opportunity to read or offer advice, talk about issues that are important to you, chat with people from different regions of the world, laugh with each other, and just get to know other members better.
The Zoosk development team has been listening to what you want. We are excited to see the relationships that are budding from your winks and flirts, but we think the buck doesn’t have to stop there! The enthusiasm of each Zoosker is a powerful driving force and we are happy to open even more doors for you to find the person for whom you’ve been searching.
We are looking forward to meeting you on the Zoosk Community Forum!
