Santo André Gets Crown as Brazil’s Most Flirtatious Town

Badoo site homepage Santo André, in the Greater São Paulo, was named “Brazil’s flirtiest city” by the compilers of a study of online flirting. Desterro ranked second, while Campinas and São Bernardo do Campo ranked third in Brazil’s first “National Flirtation League” compiled by Badoo.com, a social networking site, which boasts of having 112 million users chatting and flirting in 180 countries across the world.

Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Brazilian capital Brasília all failed to rank among Brazil’s 20 flirtiest cities.

Badoo’s flirtation league ranks Brazil’s cities by the number of online chats/flirtations initiated per month by the average Badoo user in each. The results for Brazil are part of a larger global study, analyzing 12 million flirtatious contacts made during a month on Badoo.

“This is a proud day for Santo André,” says Lloyd Price, Badoo’s Director of Marketing. “When it comes to flirting, Santo André is no longer in the shadow of São Paulo.”

It is also a new cause for celebration for a city whose previous claims to fame included being the place where athlete of the Century (the 20th one) Pelé scored his first professional goal.

The average Badoo user in Santo André initiates 15.3 online flirtations per month. This is slightly more than in Desterro (15.1), in second place, but far more than in either Rio (12.4) or São Paulo (11.3).

Badoo users in even the flirtiest Brazilian cities, however, cannot match those in Athens, the world’s flirtiest city, where the average Badoo user initiates 25.7 flirtations per month.

Badoo users in Santo Andre also flirt less than those in, for example,
Montevideo (21.9), Buenos Aires (16.3) or Santiago (15.5).

Brazil, however, does top one important world league – as the country
where Badoo has more users than anywhere else.
