Bumble Now Helps Users Explore Friendships, Business Connections

During recent times, it seems like every aspect of our life is being done online. This is especially true when it comes to relationships. Now more than ever, people are meeting spouses, friends, and even coworkers online! That’s because our society is fast-paced. People no longer have the free time to be able to go out and meet people at bars, parties, or restaurants. Therefore, they turn to online. People can meet their best friend, the love of their life, or both just by laying in bed and scrolling through an app.

With the surge in popularity of online dating, comes a variety of different apps. One of the most popular ones that only seems to grow every day is Bumble. Bumble is different from all the others because it’s an app where the women get to call the shots which is important. This helps keep women safer and farther from unsolicited pictures messages from men. Women decide if they want to get to know a man, and they have to be the ones to send the first message. Bumble, thanks to founder Whitney Wolfe, is branching out even more.

Wolfe understands what it’s like to be a busy lady with limited time for making friends. Therefore, she simplified the process online by helping to create Bumble BFF which is designed to find you your new best friend. Bumble BFF focuses on people looking to meet new people and form friendships. It’s a great way to find those who have common interests with you whether that’s concerts, working out, shopping, and more. If you already have a bumble, you can choose the BFF setting. Making friends has never been easier.

For those who have already landed a spouse and some good friends, you can still get some use out of the Bumble apps. Bumble Bizz is a way for people to network. To sign up, all you have to do is upload a photo, a little bio, and current career information. Wolfe’s company even keeps a close eye on this app to make sure that things stay professional. Bumble Bizz is a great way for those to meet people who hold similar jobs. This will come in handy when looking for a new job or references. Anyone with a career has something to gain from Bumble Bizz. Sometimes, it’s just nice to be in the company of other professionals.

Whitney Wolfe Swipes Right On A Better Dating App

New online dating apps allow singles to take back control of their dating lives as they bring the possibilities of connecting with another person.

Although still very much in its early beginnings, dating apps are set to change the way singles connect. In fact an estimated 15% of all US adults have tried online dating apps, with numbers only increasing.

With all the benefits dating apps provide interested singles, one particular drawback has persisted across all platforms, dealing with online misogyny and harassment. While dating apps can help you connect with a person you would otherwise might have never encountered and spark a relationship with, they also connect you with quite a few people you would be happy to never encountered.

Online harassment and vulgar one-liners have plagued online dating as each platform has its own set of horror stories of explicit messages and requests from complete strangers.

One dating app has set out to change the online dating landscape. Bumble, created by Whitney Wolfe, goes the way of a Sadie Hawkins Dance and gives complete control to the women who use it. No longer are barrages of creepy messages from strange men a normal occurrence as every conversation and connection must be initiated by the single women using the app.

From Tinder and on to Better Things

Whitney Wolfe created Bumble with the purpose of changing the way women feel about online dating by creating a safer and more appealing environment to connect with other singles. The experience she gained while working at Tinder only has lead her and her team to improve upon dating apps as a whole.

With 11 million users already connecting on Bumble and efforts to continue to improve online dating, swiping right on Bumble has become the hottest thing in dating.
