Whitney Wolfe: The Mind Behind Bumble BFF App
Bumble BFF app is defining what was known as traditional dating rules and giving a boost to the sound reputation of the Austin technology company. Many annoying interactions and throwing of words have tarnished the meaning of dating in the online platform. The rate at which women were getting harassed increased, and this made them uncomfortable in using dating apps. Driven by the passion to eradicate online bullying, Whitney Wolf decided to create a dating up that considers women as the priority.
The Bumble app operates through the parallel profile method. Expression of interest from a person involves tapping a photo and immediately the app synchronizes a similar profile that connects if both people liked the patterns. A unique thing about this app is that it allows the woman to make the first contact.
In 2016, the app had at least 25 billion profile views and at least seven million users around the world. More than 350,000 of women communicate through the app daily, and complaints that have made less than one percent of the users.
The Bumble app has managed to have almost the same number of men and women sharing the online dating platform. The primary goal of Bumble app was to bring out equality among men and females. Although the dating app brings out feminism, it has helped strike a balance between sexes in the dating platform. Bumble founders look forward to bringing more creativity into the social network. This app not only contributes to establishing relationships but has also made business people connect in a great way.
