A Look At Some Positive Statistics From The Dating Application, Bumble
When Whitney Wolfe was interviewed by Papermag.com staff in her corporate headquarters in Austin, Texas where she pointed out some statistics about her dating app. Here are some of them. Bumble is used all over the world and currently has about 1 million active users on its platform. That is pretty striking given that Bumble is only a few years old and faces competition from other apps like Tinder.
Other notable statistics from Bumble include the fact that the app has created over 150 million matches between users to date and that number is growing everyday. Perhaps the most positive statistical figures from Wolfe’s application is the minute amount of abuse and harassment claims that users on the app experience. 2015 had only 620 reported cases of sexual harassment or abuse by Bumble members. This is fewer than 0.1% of the the total amount of users on the app.
Whitney Wolfe admits that it is hard to compare reported harassment and abuse by members to other apps, but believes that Bumble has significantly less abuse and harassment for female users when compared to other dating apps. She founded the dating app as a place where she hoped everybody would be nice and kind to each other. That is generally the case in Bumble and if not more so than at other apps which seem to have more hostility and abuse occurring on their platforms.
How Whitney Wolfe Came Up With Bumble
One of the unique features of Bumble is that females initiate the first conversation with matching males. Whitney Wolfe reveals that she felt afraid to start up conversations with men she liked in person. Bumble is changing that, by letting women start the conversation with man that they are interested in. A man cannot start a conversation with a woman. He must wait for a woman to start one with her at Bumble.
