What Is Bumble And What Sets It Apart From Other Dating Applications Out There?
Bumble is different than other dating applications for several reasons. First it is a female-centered dating application. It was designed to be an application that was made for women and that put women in control. Bumble changes the way dating works online by only allowing a woman to start up a conversation. This principle helps solve the age old problem according to Whitney Wolfe of women being swamped by vulgar and inappropriate messages from massive amounts of men. It also helps cut down on spam, which too many women know all to well occurs on typical dating sites.
For a woman to initiate a conversation with a man on the application, a man must first like the woman. Then the woman must like the man and show that she is interested in him as well. Once a connection is made, the woman has 24 hours to start a conversation. If an action is not taken by a woman, than the connection will disappear. Users have the ability to extend one connection for 24 hours each day.
