Profiles at BiCupid are pretty detailed: read one, and you get a pretty good impression of a person.
A BiCupid profile will have the following sections and details:
The member’s primary photo, name, age, and location will be displayed at the topmost part of the page. A badge will also appear here: it will tell your viewers if you are a paying member or not.
The description you wrote during the signup process will also be displayed, followed by a textbox encouraging other members to leave you a message.
BiCupid’s contact features are conveniently located below the primary photo. You can either message the member, send a wink, or add them to your favorites list.
At BiCupid, you get two sets of albums: public and private albums. For the first type, premium members can see all your images without difficulty.
The private album will require interested parties to send you a request. What's nice about it is that you can upload up to 26 photos for each album.
Your answers from the registration process will be featured on your profile board. To give your matches an idea of how awesome a person you are, the profile will include details on your appearance, background (ethnicity, language, and educational attainment are included here), and lifestyle.
The profile will also include your “About Me” write-up so members can get a glimpse of your personality.
This tab will display your activities while at BiCupid. Members can directly go to this board to see the last time you uploaded a photo or the comments you’ve left; it makes nice conversation starters as they get to know how you are as a BiCupid member.
The last board will display all the comments you’ve received. This boosts your credibility and popularity as visiting members get to see how popular you are.
Standard accounts can view complete profiles, but a subscription will come in handy when browsing the photos and videos, if any. Another perk of paying is anonymous browsing—there won’t be any alerts or trills that will inform a member that you’ve been viewing their profiles.
One of the issues BiCupid faces is the claim that there are fake profiles. During our review, we didn't receive many messages, but we noticed that some standard accounts used photos of Asian models and celebrities. BiCupid's recognition of copyrighted images seems limited to Western artists only.
With this, it's good that all members can review profiles completely. They see photo thumbnails and check if a member is acting suspiciously on the Activity board. Limiting the website's usability for free accounts is a rather good move as well: frauds can't get to you.
