Ex-Tinder co-founder has announced that she will emulate Bumble by offering women the authority to take charge of organizing and initiating a dating conversation in her site. Although it is now on the spotlight, things have not been easy for Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble dating app. Like other dating sites and apps today, the online dating portal has been marred by challenges. Nonetheless, Whitney Wolfe Herd has shown the world that she is capable of managing a much safer online dating site that perhaps is the world’s number one in ensuring that there is no female harassment. For this and other reasons, Tinder wants to copy something.

Bans Use Of Guns
Deliberate efforts have been made to shun the use of violent words, emblems of violence such as weapons that include guns. While the world has a diverse view of the use of guns, Whitney Wolfe has refused to accept their use on Bumble.
Majority of Bumble’s subscribers are women. Some of these are not just ordinary women but elite, high-end professional women who deserve better treatment. For this reason, Bumble gives both men and women the liberty to chat and plan for a date. However, it stands out that Whitney Wolfe’s site only allows women to start a conversation.
No To Match Group
Match Group, another online dating app approached Bumble a few months ago for a business partnership. According to Whitney Wolfe, the partnership could be a start of sending the women who have trusted her away. She thus turned down the offer.
Cuts Ties With Facebook
You don’t need to have a Facebook account to sign up for a Bumble account. Ms. Wolfe took this harsh stance after claims spread that Facebook mishandled clients’ data.
