It will also need to block subscribers sharing phone numbers and email addresses as this will be a paid feature of the app. The app will need verification functions to ensure users are genuine (from Australia only) like a photo potentially alerting us to scammers too. Subscribers will need to be able to add both a short video and photo content plus complete optional questionnaire. The site must allow social media integration and have a customer chat feature.
