Valentine’s Day: Not Just For Lovers

On February 14th, gift giving on the mobile app Qeep triples and it’s not just between couples.

Cologne, February 11, 2016 – It will soon be February 14th, when couples exchange gifts and admirers send cards to their sweethearts. But on Valentine’s Day in Qeep, friends are getting in on the action too. An analysis of more than 100,000 monthly gift exchanges on Qeep over the last five years found that 26% were between platonic friends.

Qeep unites 35 million registered Android and iOS users worldwide, who share an interest in meeting new people, making friends and flirting. Along with chatting, photo sharing, and gaming, virtual gifts are an important part of the Qeep experience.

Every day thousands of Qeep users brighten a friend’s day by sending a virtual gift. On Valentine’s Day gift giving surges, with three times more gifts being given on the day compared to other dates. In addition to the classic red rose, virtual top sellers include a love heart, shimmering diamond jewelry, panda teddy bears, and lollipops.

“Qeep’s virtual gifts allow everyone to put a smile on their friends’ faces – no matter where they come from and what they are doing. Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for gift giving – and on Qeep you don’t even have to queue in the florist”, said Managing Director Cornelius Rost.
