In a world that is so busy and interactive, it’s surprising that there are still so many people who feel lonely. This is because we rely on technology and despite the fact that it’s supposed to bring us closer together, sometimes it brings us farther apart. There are thousands of different apps out there for dating, friendship, hook-ups, and more. Not all of them, however, due what they set out to do. Some are unsafe, some are mentally harmful, and some are just taking advantage of users. At the end of the day, using certain apps makes you feel lonely. Luckily, a woman by the name of Whitney Wolfe noticed this.
Wolfe saw that there was a need for apps that women can rely on. That’s why she created Bumble. Bumble started out as a typical online dating app but with one small twist. It was the first app in which women were truly in charge. This meant that they got to call all the shots. Through Bumble, a man isn’t able to message a woman unless she reaches out first and decides that she wants to take things to the next level. This not only is safer in the long run but it also empowers women and helps them weed out unsolicited messages and pictures from men that they don’t feel comfortable conversing with.
Bumble is now doing more than just helping women find relationships. Founder and CEO of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe realized there was a market for more. Women now want more out of their personal life when it comes to making friends and more out of their careers. Thus, Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF were born. Bumble Bizz allows women and men to network. Instead of personal information, profiles are taken over with business information. Users are allowed to post what they’re looking for career-wise, past experience, and portfolio samples. This is a great app to have when getting ahead in this society is usually due to who you know instead of what you know.
Bumble Bff is pretty straightforward. It’s for those who are looking for friendship. The great thing about Bumble Bff is that people already know that others are looking for friends. There’s no awkward conversations, unsure feelings, and unsolicited pickup lines. Bumble Bff is perfect for those who move to a new area and are having a hard time making friends. It’s also great for anyone who simply feels lonely. Wolfe has been there before and now she wants to do her part to make others social lives just a little bit happier.
