Real or Fake?

An enticing home page and a promise of an interesting concept. promises a lot at a glance. The carousel of user profiles is also proudly displayed. All of these things point to a reputable dating site. We decided to put it to the test nonetheless. Unfortunately, we soon discovered the site uses a lot of false advertising. Users that haven’t yet bought a subscription will receive many explicit messages from attractive users. However, these messages come from fake profiles run by paid operators. Their task is to scam new users into purchasing a membership plan. This is extremely easy to see, as each user will start getting messages before they upload a photo or write anything about themselves on their profiles.

Free vs Paid

Xsocial uses the tried method of promising free registration to lure new members into joining the site. The first problem occurs at registration, as the site will return you to fill the form multiple times. When you finally register, it won’t take long to realize you can’t user any of the features properly if you don’t give the site money. The most basic feature of any dating site – talking to other members is behind a paywall. The ’’play’’ feature which shows users a choice of profiles they can match with is free to use for non-paying members. Yet, they will not be able to contact their matches. Lastly, the most interesting feature – ’’cams’’ doesn’t enable you to video chat with other members, but instead leads to different adult entertainment sites dedicated to cam girls. Finally, there is the problem of automatic subscription renewals. The site will charge you as soon as your plan expires if you don’t take the time to cancel your subscription. Additionally, doing so is very difficult, as customer support is hard to get in contact with.
