Bumble APP Review – Dating & Social APP for Women
On Bumble, girls are in charge; it reverses gender roles and makes women make the first move. Bumble is a Tinder style social and dating app that makes online dating as simple and addictive as a game for female. Once a match is made on Bumble, it only allows woman to strike up the conversation with their matches.
Bumble was founded by Whitney Wolfe, the co-founder of Tinder, who leaving Tinder due to alleged sexual harassment.
Female Friendly Dating APP
On Tinder, some male just swipe right on everyone, without any discretion, just to increase their matches and looking to have sex with as many women as possible. Flicking through Tinder, quick matched with few girls and instantly sent them a pornographic message. The kind of sexist, vulgar and aggressive messages from men lead unpleasant experiences. This phenomenon can be pretty common on other dating apps.
The fact is that online dating websites or apps still make most of their revenue from men, and women have always been ignored as a customer group
So, any dating app that keeps female in mind is appreciated. An app gives the woman a chance to take a little more control; a dating app that offered some level of female empowerment is obvious needed. So there comes Bumble, the female-orientated dating app.
Since it is feminist label, Bumble also attracts feminist men, which are one more reason for giving it a serious try. There still not convinced Bumble is a real feminist dating app, since LGBT connections seems encouraged, but at last sees the possibility of a dating app where you don’t receive vulgar messages from men.
Just like Tinder, both men and women swipe, but men are not allowed to send the first message, and women have to start talking to the guys her matched within 24 hours from the time they match, otherwise the connection disappears forever. This happens in the case of a heterosexual matching, with same-sex or friend connections, either person can make a move within 24 hours. Each person can extend one connection a day for an additional 24 hours. You can go back if you swiped the wrong way, but only 3 times. Bumble’s backtrack feature lets you take back accidental left swipes
Right now, Facebook is the only way to sign up. Bumble use your name, age, school and job to create your profile. Anyone can use a fake Facebook account to create a bumble profile, so Bumble requires a certain number of friends on your Facebook to ensure you are real. Women can sign up freely but men need to be invited by the female users.
Still, Bumble has some unique features:
1) the direct photo messaging, which allowed users to send each other direct photo messages;
2) the VIBee, a verified designed to help promote and maintain good behavior and online accountability;
3) the BFF feature to find new friends, users will see their potential dates replaced by people of the same sex that Bumble thinks you would want to be friends with;
4) the politically themed filters starting with the 2016 presidential election, users can overlay their profile pictures with the filters.
