Vietnam social app Paktor sets largest speed-dating record

New Delhi, Dec. 9 : Vietnamese social networking app Paktor has set a new Guinness world record for the largest speed dating event.

Some 484 young singles participated in the speed-dating event in Ho Chi Minh City last November 30.

According to Enterprise Innovation, the app beat the previous record set in New Zealand in July 2013.

Each participant had a three-minute date with 24 other participants, which included numerous local celebrities and singers from popular local band V-Music, the report said.

Paktor founder and CEO Joseph Phua said that the strong online presence of the Paktor Speed Date Night is an example of how Vietnam's youths are highly tech-savvy while socially engaged in the real world.

Phua added that this was a rare and valued characteristic that presents Vietnam with a bright future.
