After our push last year to make the site and service professional quality, this year we are focused on improving our community and mobile device usability. Here’s a review of last year, and this year so far.
2012 was the year of professional quality. Christian Filipina had already helped dozens of couples to meet their soulmates. We grew CF from an informal, home-based hobby to a full-fledged, professional site supported by an international staff in 3 countries.

In 2013 we are focusing on community and mobile. The community project is to help our members to build trust by getting to know each other (for instance in our new forum), to help our members learn from past members who are already happily married after meeting at CF, and at the same time to help educate them about the state of the international dating industry, so they are safe. We have already brought you our first video testimonials (click to open).

We have also brought you articles, as well as audio and video research, on deceptive practices in the dating industry (scam and fraud sites).

We have setup the Christian Filipina forum, and thanks to hundreds of our members, the CF forum is now the best place for cross-cultural discussion and community.

What we are working on now is making our website more mobile-device friendly. Thus far, we have already improved our home page for mobile users, and launched our new Message System and Control Panel. We will continue to improve our mobile features in the months to come, so please do send us your feedback if you use a mobile device to access CF.

Here’s a graph showing the past two years of mobile device use at our site. The percentage of website visits from mobile phones and tablets have more than doubled each year, both for our members from the Philippines and from outside the Philippines. We anticipate that it will continue to grow stronger this year and by this time next year almost half our members will regularly be using mobile devices to access CF.
