As part of the site’s overall revamp, we analyzed the usage of different features across Zorpia.
The most used features, such as Profile, People Nearby, and Like feature have been enhanced and released recently to provide users with better navigation and people meeting experience.
We will continue our efforts to optimize them and release amazing new features in the near future.
On the other hand, results of our analysis have shown that the usage of certain features varies greatly depending on the country. Forums, a widely used feature in the international version of Zorpia, have not gained traction in the Indian and Middle Eastern markets, whereas users from English speaking countries have requested access to the international forums. This is why we have decided to apply the following changes to our forums, on September 4, 2013:
- All current English speaking local versions of Zorpia will be merged into one single domain (www.zorpia.com)
- All English speaking countries’ forums will be merged with the international forums, allowing more exposure and interaction on the international forums
- Forums in the Middle Eastern version of Zorpia will be retired
- Forums in the Indian version of the site will be retired
There will be no change in the rest of the site, and your login credentials will remain intact. Users from China and Hong Kong will not be affected at all.
It is always a difficult decision to retire features, but we strongly believe this will keep the site user-friendly and allow more users to enjoy features that are properly maintained.
Stayed tuned for more updates on our upcoming new features here on our Zorpia Blog.

One month ago we launched the new profile on Zorpia. Today we’re happy to bring you our next major upgrade! Zorpia will gradually roll out the new ‘Interested In Me’, ‘I Am Interested In’ and ‘Mutual Interests’ tabs to all users.
The focal point of this upgrade is the ‘Like’ feature. ‘Like’ is a notable feature on Zorpia which you can initiate communication and express your interest in someone. When two users send each other ‘Likes’, a match will be made. It is an awesome way of saying hi to someone new and also the quickest way of grabbing his/her attention.
We have simplified the user experience and consolidated the interactions on three different tabs to allow you to see who like you, who you like, and who you share mutual attraction with.
The new tabs can be found in the navigation menu on the left hand side of Zorpia.
Interested In Me (People Who Like Me)
It lists everybody that has liked you, no matter which feature they initiated the like from, may it be the new profile, search results, Match Up or Get Friending. We have also improved the interface with more prominent Message and Like buttons.
When you like someone on this page, he/she will be moved to the ‘Mutual Attraction’ page.
One of the more noticeable visual changes is the revamp of ‘Mutual Attraction’ tab.
When you like someone and he/she likes you back, it’s a mutual attraction. Unlike before, where you could only find mutual matches in Match Up, this new page shows the mutual matches you made across all features on Zorpia. Start messaging people on this page now, you know you like them and they like you too!
I Am Interested In (People I Like)
This feature, then only available in Match Up as well, is extended to cover all the likes you have initiated regardless of which feature you clicked like on. It serves as a record of people you are interested in. You may either wait for them to like you back, or if you want to try harder, message them to get their attention!
Our goal is to bring clarity to the entire user experience on Zorpia. With these three new tabs, we hope it will be easier for you to break the ice and meet more people with assurance that those people are already interested.
Log on Zorpia and check out who are waiting for your messages!
