Dating apps have become a popular way to meet people and look for relationships with todays younger generations. Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble is one of the newer yet widely successful apps on the market. What separates Bumble from other apps is the unique option it gives users when setting up their profiles. They get to decide if they want to use the app for dating or specifically for Bumble BFF. The BFF option is strictly for making friends, whether you’re out traveling or wants some new besties to add to your circle in your hometown.
In addition to the launch of Bumble BFF, Bumble is set to open a sweet new spot called The Hive. The Hive will serve as a place for coffee dates, friends hanging out after work for a drink, or anyone who simply wants to check it out. The New York City hangout will offer both a full alcohol and coffee bar but with limited hours. They will only be open from Thursday’s through Sunday’s. As of right now, The Hive is a temporary meet up spot expected to last just one month and during that time all proceeds will go to charity.
Whitney Wolfe, founder and CEO of Bumble, is the mastermind behind The Hive. She initially created this app as a way for women to have the opportunity to choose who they want to date. The way Bumble is set up, women are the ones who get to hit like, only after that they will show up in the men’s feed. This is what sets it apart from many other dating apps. Whitney Wolfe’s site also has the option to be used in BIZZ or BFF mode.
Due to Whitney Wolfe’s unique and trending work in the social media world, she has won many awards and recognitions. Her most recent was being named one of Forbes 30 Under 30. Whitney Wolfe has been in the tech field for many years and continues to invent new app ideas every day.
