Many people are familiar with Bumble, and for those who are not, Bumble is a dating app that is used from mobile devices. What makes Bumble one-of-a-kind is that communication must be initiated by the female once a match has been created; this Bumble-exclusive dating rule gives women the chance to show their dominant side, and may even inspire more girl power outside of the app.
With the success of Bumble came Bumble BFF, the app community’s latest discovery. Bumble BFF is just like the original Bumble app, except is was designed for friendships to be made instead of romantic relationships. After all, one can’t have too many friends, right?
With the goal of giving leadership to women in the dating field, as well as creating harmony by granting friendships, Bumble seems to have a good cause. This good-for-all philosophy isn’t surprising when we look at the woman who created these apps to start with. Whitney Wolfe, one of the 30 most important women under the age of 30 (named by Business Insiders), is the magic-maker behind Bumble and Bumble BFF. With a degree in International Studies, Whitney Wolfe has a strong understanding of what the fundamentals are that relationships share, culture to culture. In fact, Whitney Wolfe has direct experience working with orphanages in Southeast Asia. Her philanthropic work doesn’t stop there, as she also created charitable fashion-items (at the age of 19) that raised money for those suffering from the BP oil spill.
Whitney Wolfe’s latest creative endeavor is called the Hive, which is a yellow-hued location where Bumble (and Bumble BFF) matches can meet up. Even people who are not Bumble users are welcome to the hangout space, as it has purposes besides getting to know Bumble matches. In fact, classes will be given on a variety of subjects, including empowerment, business, and relationships. Even hair sessions will be provided, and it’s been stated the Forbes will be making its appearance as well. Whitney Wolfe is an incredible example of how women can make a wonderful impact on the world; her specialty is bringing people together.
