Whitney Wolfe Herd Wants To Give People More Than Just Dating

Have you ever come across the app, Bumble? The app has allowed for women to take charge of their love life by being the sole human that takes over. In a world that has men be the ones who decide who they date, this app gives women the chance to make that decision. This app allows women to choose who they want to speak with out of their matches. However, over the years, what’s interesting is the fact that this app was mostly known for this main concept, but they recently have tried to find ways to improve the app. Whitney Wolfe Herd wanted to make this more than just your typical dating app.

It’s stressful sometimes witnessing an app only focus on dating, and others usually are scared to use it for possibly friends and other reasons. Whitney Wolfe Herd decided it was time to finally move the brand to a new level by creating new options. Today, there are two new options to swipe through people that don’t involve dating. If you genuinely want to make new friends, you can go to the friend option and only swipe through people who are only looking for platonic friends. These are great to join because of the fact Whitney Wolfe Herd wanted those who aren’t in need of dates to still utilize the app and find new ways to connect with people.

Then there are people who aren’t necessarily looking for friends or even dates but something even more platonic than that. With their Biz section, you can swipe through profiles of other businessmen and woman. If you are looking for a place to network, this is the way to do it. If you want to keep yourself relevant and maybe find a job, a new business partner, or somebody to invest in your ideas, this could all be done through the beauty of this part of Bumble.

Whitney Wolfe Herd is changing the game and providing people with what they want even if they aren’t looking for a way to find love. The app is changing the way we all operate in this industry. There are so many people who can get the chance to be introduced to the right people through these other avenues, and the best part is that you can use all three and get different experiences from all options. Download this app and get what you need today.

Tech Guru Whitney Wolfe Ties The Knot!

Whitney Wolfe, CEO and founder of the dating app, “Bumble”, was married earlier this month to her long-time boyfriend and Texas oil heir, Michael Herd. The two exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony in picturesque Villa Treville along the Amalfi coast, Italy. #homeiswheretheherdis was the hashtag the couple used for the wedding, playing on the last name of the groom. Whitney wore a beautiful gown by Oscar de la Renta that left guests breathless.

After the ceremony, guests were treated to a beautiful venue covered by a canopy of lemon trees. The couple then celebrated with a huge, single-tier wedding cake topped with fresh fruits. A wonderful time was had by everyone in attendance.

Whitney and her new husband met three years ago on Valentine’s Day in Aspen and were engaged in July.

Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and attended Southern Methodist University, which is located in and around Dallas, Texas. She majored in International Studies. While still in college at the age of 19, she started a business selling bamboo tote bags to help people affected by the BP oil spill. The bags got a boost in the national press when celebrities such as Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie took a liking to them and were photographed wearing them in public. Upon graduation, Wolfe moved to Southeast Asia where she worked with orphanages. In December of 2014 Wolfe moved to Austin, Texas and founded the dating app Bumble. Fumble is different than other dating apps because it encourages women to make the first move as opposed to men. Within a year, the app had reached 15 million unique conversation and 80 million matches.

Capitalizing on the success of the app, Wolfe has sought to expand the app and has launched companion apps BumbleBIZZ and BumbleBFF. BumbleBIZZ seeks to empower women with their careers in much the same way as the Bumble dating app, by giving them more control and choices. Users can search their surrounding area for potential business contacts. For more info about us: http://elitedaily.com/dating/women-bumble-dating/2003863/ click here.

According to TIME, Bumble is valued at $500 million.
