Unlike mainstream websites for dating, Fling.com is for those mostly looking for a hook-up and as such has more explicit member profiles. The site caters to men, women, and couples seeking other men, women or couples in their area or people from all over.
Before anything else, you will have to register on Fling and choose who you are and what you are looking for, as well as set your age and location. Then you'll be prompted to upload a photo and state your interests. Later you can add additional profile info or change various account settings.
You will be able to access some features and perform searches, but to really use the site, you'll have to choose between a 2-day ($0.99) and 7-day trial ($9.95) or a 1-month ($34.95), 6-month ($11.65/month) and 12-month subscription ($6.67/month).
When it comes to profiles, Fling.com has thousands, but you're bound to find a significant number of fakes ones which is normal for this type of website. To sort through them all, you have many different tools at your disposal, including an advanced search, a list of new faces, most popular profiles, and an option to view the people who are online now. Besides common messaging features, you can also use a video chat or group chat section to interact with others. There are also extras available and they include homemade streaming videos and pictures.
In terms of ads, Fling doesn't differ much from its competitors because it has quite a few ads in the form of banners and text links. There's also a live pay per view webcam site and the mobile app requires a phone number so you can probably expect more ads there as well.
