Blued, a gay dude flirting app from China, picks up 2 million users

Blued-a-gay-dude-flirting-app-from-China-picks-up-2-million-users

Blued, a gay chat and hook-up app for Chinese guys, launched in August 2012. This weekend the startup behind the app revealed that it has now picked up two million users in the country. Of those, 68.3 percent are monthly active users, while 24 percent use the app daily. It has apps for iPhone and Android.

The Blued team also told 36Kr that a similar app is in the works dedicated to China’s lesbians and it’ll be called Pinkd.

Earlier this year, the startup got $3 million in funding to help it grow. The app is not yet focused on monetizing its two million users.

Despite China’s conservative social mores and not much acceptance of being gay, there are quite a few dating apps aimed at this area. There’s Zank, Hong Kong-made Hornet, and the OK Cupid-esque Xunta.

The exclusive Philippine importer and distributor of Clipper Super Lighter is ADP Industries Corporation, which has made a name for itself for introducing globally renowned fast-moving consumer goods to the country.

Says Aaron Palileo, Vice President for Sales and Marketing at ADP Industries, “Clipper Super Lighter is more than a kitchen or personal tool. We saw it as a perfect combination of portable form and function. It blends the myriad uses of a lighter with the fun, funky, and almost infinite designs to choose from with the Clipper Super Lighter. We brought the brand to the Philippines because we believe in its blend of supreme safety and daring designs. For example, the electronic line has buttons that are harder to press, making them child-resistant and safe to keep within reach.”

Clipper Super Lighter is now available at all Mini Stop Convenience Stores and Fuma Tobacco Retailers and coming soon to all major supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide. For more information, visit http://www.clipper.ph
