Whitney Wolfe and the Modern Dating Revolution
As the world continues to adopt modern technology across different spheres of life, the dating scene has also undergone many significant changes over the years. Gone are the days when you had to go out physically if you ever hoped to get a match as today you can easily do that with the help of an app. Among the two most popular dating apps that are available in the market today are Tinder and Bumble. What do the two have in common? Both companies were founded in part and wholly by Whitney Wolfe.
Although Whitney Wolfe later resigned from Tinder, a company that she co-founded in the year 2012, she still carries on as the CEO of Bumble. In the few years that this dating app has been in operation, Whitney Wolfe has almost single handedly transformed it into what is now ranked as the fourth most popular dating app in the world.The Bumble dating app is supposed to work like a regular dating app on paper but it has a number of unique properties to which a significant portion of its unprecedented success can be attributed.
The most significant of this is the fact that unlike other regular dating apps, only female members can initiate contact when using the app. The main advantage here is that more contacts initiated are likely to bear fruitful results as women generally only initiate contact with people in whom they are really interested and not just poking around. At present Bumble has already garnered more than 11 million registered users.Whitney Wolfe is neither new to the dating world nor to that of technology. In 2014 she was named among the 30 most important women under the age of 30 in Tech by the Business insider and she has since gone on to win more accolades to cement her place.
