French social platform expands team with acquisition of new London office
A French social networking platform has announced that it has acquired a new London office.
Yubo, which saw its UK user base increase by 80 per cent in 2020, has also recruited new team members for the London office.
Since its launch in the UK, Yubo has seen the country become the business’ second biggest user base, with more than 3.6 million British members.
The platform focuses on creating a “safe social space for Gen Z”, including features such as age verification and real-time intervention.
Benjamin Trigalou, one of the company’s new hires, commented: “What the platform has delivered in this busy industry is unique and exciting, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team to continue developing a highly engaging place for young, digital-savvy teams to socialise.”
Margaux Liquard, another hire, added: “The investment Yubo has made already in industry-leading technology to protect its young users is incredible, and I look forward to leading the investigation team in the new London office to keep this strong momentum and further cement Yubo as one of, if not the safest platform for teens in the UK and across the globe.”
Sacha Lazimi, CEO of Yubo, commented: “From the very beginning, we have seen support from the UK as one of our biggest hubs for dedicated users, and so we are thrilled to be creating a permanent base for Yubo in London.
“I am confident that the skillset which Benjamin and Margaux bring to this new HQ will continue our efforts in delivering an unrivalled social experience for teens, as well as maintaining the platform as being one of the safest in the industry.”
