Anyone can agree that there are so many dating sites and apps today than one could find a few years ago. With their emergency, it is evident that many people can arrange for a date, and even meet their perfect matches in life. Of all these, Whitney Wolfe Herd’s Bumble, stands out. The app is exceptional. According to Time Magazine, which recently named Whitney Wolfe the 2018 Person of The Year, Bumble is the only app that seems to take care for women rights.
The decision to name Whitney Wolfe the Person of The Year in 2018 was not an easy one. The online journal looked at several other dating apps and sites, carefully comparing them. In the end, the magazine came up with four reasons why Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble deserved the honor. These reasons are not mere attempts but deliberate efforts Wolfe has made to ensure the app is a safer dating portal.
Safety Measures To Ensure Women Are Defended
Current estimations indicate that Bumble is worth $1 billion. Most of the net that this app has collected is from women, who are the majority of the subscribers. This is evidently one reason why Time Magazine considered Whitney Wolfe’s app for the award. The app empowers women.
Secondly, Bumble does not want to be merged to any other site. When approached by Match Group recently, Whitney Wolfe turned down what would seem to many as a prime opportunity to partner with a dating giant.
Thirdly, Time Magazine looked at how Bumble deals with client information. Initially, you needed a social media account such as Facebook to sign up with Bumble. It is no longer the case. After a recent delicate service by Facebook on client privacy, Bumble distanced itself from the social media site saying it cares for the privacy of its clients.
The fourth reason why Time Magazine considered Bumble for the lofty position that brought her founder Whitney to the limelight is that the app took a strong stance against the use of certain content. You cannot use photos and adverts containing guns. According to Whitney Wolfe, guns communicate anger, grief, jealousy, violence, and murder. Her app will not tolerate this.
