To do a lot of you get when you take your Finya profile to fill out want. This is strongly recommended, because the only way you can stand out in half-hearted profiles. The profile is divided into different sections and in each section you can enter other Details about yourself:
The section “about me”

First of all, so only fill in work, but then follows the creative Part. You have of 5,000 characters available to create a personal Statement, you to convince your To can.

In the first Moment, the amount of questions seems daunting, but you don’t have to them all in a day answer. You always have the option of storing all of your answers and on another day with the answer to continue. The questions are divided into the following categories:

The heading “I search”
In the search section, there are not many setting options. Here you specify in the first step, whether you’re looking for a man or a woman, and then you select an age range. If you do not respond to this, you will be shown the persons of the desired sex, regardless of age. After that you can select, whether you are a partnership, a Flirt or an adventure, or nice people looking for.
The section “I like”
Hashtags, or keywords play in search of like-minded people often have a role. In the category of “I like”, you can specify individual terms that you positively feel.

A Person visits your profile, you can gain based on your keywords a first impression, whether their similarities have.
The Section “Favorite Brands”
The last category is the one that Finya then, but very clearly as an ad-supported page outs. Under “favorite brands” are intended to provide the user exactly what brands he prefers, be it alcoholic beverages, cars, fashion labels or cigarettes. All possible Brands are represented with a Logo that only has to be selected. If Jever or Gucci, whether Kellogg’s or Breitling, the selection of different brands is limitless, and women in particular, this section seemingly with joy .
Your profile can thus be designed very diverse, it takes several hours for time, if you carefully want to proceed. Our tip: If you’re serious with the partner, is invested that time well, because completed Profiles have more chances.
Who fills out this part of his profile, you will be prompted to create the account again, insistently, his favorite brands, but to specify. Finya says: “brands can testify, consciously or unconsciously, a lot about you. You show in your profile, what brands can you find well -”
That you want to enable with the brand information for your advertisers to reach the right audience and your advertising optimum want to customize, don’t announce it so loud. But if you want to use a free Service on the Internet, you should have this condition already accustomed to. And it remains a diagnosis, whether he wants to make this information .

Chat when you are both online to leave messages guestbook for the first contact right answers fast, comprehensive search functions, and no comment function for photos.
Directly on the home page, you will see the members whose Profiles you can view.
On the profile of a member there are two symbols, the envelope leads to the mailbox, the speech bubble is directly in the Chat. Both functions are fit for purpose and comply with their Use. Who hopes to send too many Smileys or photos, will be disappointed by Finya unfortunately .
You don’t want to wait for it to be self-addressed or you will find a picture on the home page, like this one, there are at Finya various ways to search for appropriate contacts:
Here you can enter all the search criteria to find a suitable match – gender, age range, Externals, signs of the zodiac, or photo-Voting rating score (see below under Voting for further information on valuation note).
He who has no desire to search criteria and Profiles to sift through, can the images in the gallery simply by profile by clicking on it. These are randomly selected, and an assessment arises (for the time being) solely on the basis of appearance. When a potential contender like, you can view his profile, or him only once on the shopping list. But it is mainly on the appearance, or if you just want to get a quick Overview of the offer on Finya, will have at the gallery-function joy .
To be a bit superficial, then there is the Voting function. Here the user will be shown two pictures of two users, out of which he then has to choose which one appeals to him the most. So the opportunity to make attractive candidates find results playful again. In addition, each user receives a rating between 0.0 and 10.0. All user votes for a photo, it receives the point number 10. If a photo is never clicked, it will be rated with a 0. Although many people prefer the photo as reject, it gets a grade of 5,0. As mentioned above, you can specify in the search criteria, what minimum grade should a potential Partner. As a small Disclaimer Finya writes then: “don’t Take the Voting too seriously. True beauty still comes from the Inside!“. Users can also set that you want to be excluded from the Voting .
So shallow this game is, you have to say, it’s fun and it’s hard to stop – certainly something Finya with the Voting game aims to its users (= advertisement receiver) and hold for as long as possible on the page .
If you chose once a promising match, we can contact by personal message , Chat or Bulletin Board-like “guestbook”. Also the Option to draw the profile of another of “Like” is a way to draw attention to themselves .
You will be harassed or not, wants to contact you can lock a profile immediately, or in the case of a rule violation report to Finya .
many design options are many, likeable profile photos a good source of information when the information is available very few, well-filled out Profiles boring view of the Profiles.
Although there is on the part of Finya great possibilities for the design of the profile, it seems to be the most members to tedious to create a really great profile. While many of the and also quite likeable profile photos are right in the System on-the-go, but the written information is more than poor.
Of about 100 visited profiles, only five had answered a few questions from the 100 questions, and only 11 people, a personal Statement was available. On this Basis, it is to send difficult personal news, since there is no suspension point in the profile .
The Profiles are filled out, however carefully, offer you abundant Material for conversation and allow already before the first contact with an impression about the other Person. A bit boring in the profile view, however. The plain White in the Background and the aggressive pop-up advertising can detract from the fun of the profile hopping .
no mobile App is available to use via web browser possible mobile Version of Finya error is not loaded all functions are available.
A proper App there are not from Finya currently and it is not aware of whether or not such is in the planning stage. However, Finya for 2014 in the mobile Version. The Portal over the phone, you need a web browser and an Internet connection.
The page layout through the web browser in the mobile Version is working in spite of LTE is very slow, which demands a lot of patience. It would of course be desirable to have a Finya App, which is as extensive as the Website.
Again and again it came in the Test to load difficulties, the pages were not accessed or were not found. There are some flaws, and we can recommend mobile use only in an emergency, when an urgent message is to be answered. Furthermore, the mobile Version is slimmed down significantly, here you can take part in the Voting, even Profiles on the gallery search.
Our Test Finya was very controversial, while some of the points have excited it, in turn, gave criteria that do not fit absolutely to a good Dating platform .
The registration and profiling has impressed us from the beginning, because as one of the few portals Finya offers really variety in the profile position. To answer even if it’s quite a chore 100 questions, it’s fun, it’s about other people to give a first impression .
The fun was not marred significantly when we had to find the other members make in so much effort, almost no one had answered the 100 questions. This raises the question of how serious it is to the users of Finya with your intentions. But we didn’t want to judge rashly, and have only gone once to profile search .
Although the Portal is originally from the North of Germany, is compensated for the number of members from the whole of Germany. Whether in Munich or Frankfurt, Berlin or Bremen, search results there are almost everywhere. What is amazing is that there are a lot of photos without a single word, but with multiple images. Even if a picture can say more than words, the lack of personal reference and address, even if the Statement was omitted .
When sending messages it is to get in contact with advisable to primary members who are online or you’ve seen online and in your favorites list. Since many dead files in the System are it is not uncommon that messages end up in Nirvana and never be answered .
Also, the question of the number of Fake Profiles came to us in this context again and again. Since Finya costs nothing, the page is particularly attractive for Fakes and scammers.
Our Test-contacts – 5 species for a first message.
A 29-year-old IT-ler with the name “go-and-get_it”, I asked: “Well what do You want “go-and-get”-en. ” and wondered whether the “it” should point to the Underscore in his Pseudonym, perhaps, an Italian origin. So, I asked continue thereafter.
The direct, “funny” request was not received so well, because I was taught time that you start a message with a “Hello”. After all, he replied, and then had a conversation. Ironically, he said that he was looking for a rich, 70-year-old Omi. My (relatively detailed) profile, he is marked with “I like”. An indication that a carefully filled-in, meaningful profile is half the battle .
2. To be honest.
A journalist, may be preferred in his description of quite a lot of demands on a woman who turned to his imagination (RTL2-watch the romance of a book and the Congo and Syria will not be held for holiday destinations), and on any of its seven photos a little bit of the teeth showed, I wrote:
“Hi! You seem to have also slightly higher claims 🙂 that You look at Your photos so seriously. Would like to see your Smile!“
This honest contact was well received! The Journalist admitted to have not so high expectations, strengthened again its Position that it is not easy to find a woman with brains and fun-factor, and apologized for his grim photos. Although he asked no question which would have led the conversation continues, his 3-movement message, but did not contain at least 2 Smileys. This is always a good sign 🙂
Babuun, who described himself in his profile as follows:
“Hello, my name is Damian! I am searching for a girlfriend. I’m a down-to-earth, very sporty and clever. If You want to know more, write to me !”,
“Hi Babuun, I would like to know more! Why do You think You’re so clever?!“
Babuun, aka Damian, was delighted with my message and explained to me that he thinks he’s not so clever, but just trying to describe as briefly and precisely as Possible. From his experience, not long even worth the description, “since the eh no one reads through”. Nevertheless, he also writes that my “meaningful[it] and sympathetic[it]” profile like.
Conclusion: The cheeky request was well received and I was again encouraged that a carefully completed profile is worth it .
A member of my self-description with “I like” had marked, I looked at me more closely. In his own description, he started the attempt at a sense of entitlement (“I like other the thoughts, and I’m always surprised by what in terms of values, appearance, life is about setting so, even if you don’t expect anything.”). So I gave myself respectable and went of that, I wrote:
“Hi! Nice that You like my self-description. Also Your attitude I find very, very good to the point! Somehow you can’t leave up to his expectations most of the time, even if you aim for the. But expectations are maybe not necessarily a bad thing, as long as they are not unfounded prejudices. What do You mean?“
This also came back well and carried the tray simple to explain his life philosophy to be more precise:
A 29-year-old teacher, stating that he has “no desire to have children” is, I wrote: “Hi, Adorno! You quenched the work as a teacher so that You don’t want kids or has this other reasons?“. Apparently, this message was just a bit too personally, because I received no response.
Design & Operation.
to use, very beginner friendly and well functions are self-explanatory Design is very plain and often drab font size is too small for the visually impaired advertising is annoying after a short time.
Finya is easy to use and is therefore recommended for beginners very. Even if you delete Finya, you have no difficulties and can direct on your profile your Account remove.
The most common functions agree almost completely by itself, only the range of Matching is somewhat misleading. Under the concept of Matching most Dating users understand a System, which searches for matching persons. In Finya Matching means only that two people have added your photo to each other with a heart. Whether similarities are present or if a possible partnership is in question, can not be determined by means of Finya Matching, however .
The Design of the Website is however open to criticism and fairly in the years to come. The single, color brightening points are banners, one of which is more than enough are available. Finya is funded by advertising, so the need is clear, but the side banners, not click away, advertising overlapping the use of the portal make it very.
In General, the font size of Finya could be somewhat larger, because some figures are very bad. For people with low vision can arise problems, especially the explanations of the individual sections are written very small and interfere therefore.
