Whitney Wolfe has played a significant role in revolutionizing the dating world by introducing the newest social dating network on the planet named Bumble. Even though Bumble by Whitney Wolfe is a relatively new dating platform, it has got immense popularity in the last few years.
Having started in 2014, Bumble has already amassed over 30 million members, and its member base continues to increase at a rapid pace. In a relatively short span, Bumble has managed to become one of the top 5 dating apps in use today. Forbes has estimated the net worth of Bumble to be around one billion, which is expected to increase in the time to come.
Whitney Wolfe is the founder of Bumble, who has also been a co-founder of the top dating app named Tinder, which is presently owned by the dating giant Match Group. In a recent development, Match Group has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Bumble, which Bumble refuses utterly. As per the developments in the past few months, Match Group tried to acquire Bumble, but when the negotiations of acquisitions failed, the lawsuit came as a repulsive rebuttal that seemed to have not gone down well with Whitney Wolfe and her team. Recently, Bumble published a full-page ad in the newspaper, where she mentioned that neither she nor Bumble is going to be bogged down by the threats of Match Group. Whitney Wolfe also mentioned in her open letter to Match Group that Bumble would never be sold to Match Group, and thus any plan of acquisition by Match Group can now be confirmed as permanently squashed.
Whitney Wolfe has previously had a fall out with the co-founders of Tinder, which is why she left the company to start her entrepreneurial journey. Whitney Wolfe is an enterprising woman and has helped make Bumble a new and unique social dating network that is appreciated for its bold characteristics across the globe. The presence of Bumble is expected to grow in the years to come as Whitney Wolfe, and the team plans to launch it in many other nations in the time to come. Recently, Whitney Wolfe also introduced two new features in Bumble, namely Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF. Bumble BFF is a platform inside Bumble where people can look for friends and in Bumble Bizz, members can expand their professional network by interacting with other professionals from the same field. However, the fundamental principle of only women making the first move remains constant across all platforms in Bumble.
