I discovered recently that Zoosk has been misleading their customers. It appears that if you have not deleted profiles in the "Who Viewed You" section, and merely skimmed through those photos without actually tapping into them, Zoosk will automatically forward a message to the the owner of these profiles alerting them that you have viewed their photos. I find this an unethical way of conducting business. I have voiced my opinion to customer service only to be told that it is a minor technicality. I feel that it is an issue only because it can be misleading to someone whom is genuinely interested in getting to know you. I would have never known about this "minor technicality" of theirs, if a member on Zoosk had not accused me of viewing his profile several times without ever making any effort to chat with him. The odd thing was, I never looked at this individuals profile other then to reply to his message. As far as i am concerned, these automatic alerts are an embarrassment and an inconvenience. They play havoc with emotions rather than to attempt connecting people based on sincere interest. If I were to rate Zoosk from 1 to 5, I would rate that site a "0"!
Low population and possibly fictitious profiles. Finally, not the most attractive men visit this venue.
Easy to navigate, decent support staff/customer service, and Zoosk is reasonably priced but you get what you pay for!
In summary, I would not recommend Zoosk to a friend.
