Whitney Wolfe is the woman behind the popular dating app, Bumble. This app works very much like most others out there in the fact that you need to actually connect with people by swiping non profiles left or right. Right means you want to connect with them. Here’s the only thing that makes Bumble so different from other apps. When a match is made, women must make the decision first to text the guy, and if the girl decides she doesn’t want to send the guy a message, the entire match is gone. Now men don’t have the [ower to send those elicit or disrespectful messages first hand off the bat.

Whitney Wolfe loved this entire idea that she made it an app, and today, it is making waves across the globe with more than 144 countries using the app and more than 33 registered users. Wolfe is here to make a change, and plans on using this app and her notoriety to create a difference on different topics. For example, she is doing everything in her power to overcome gun violence. Today, users are not able to upload photos in profile that involve holding a gun or other weapons. There is no more chances to romanticize the idea of guns on this app. This is her company and she no longer wants this to be happening. She has even been a part of the March For Our Lives movement, which is known for the kids who were a part of one of the recent shootings in Florida as a way for them to stand up to gun violence and come together.
Whitney Wolfe is working towards using this app to do more than just help people find dates or their new lover. For example, businessmen and others looking to expand their network in business can use Bumble Bizz to find new potential partners. The new Bumble BFF is a new version that allows for people to find specifically just platonic friends. If you want someone to geek out over your favorite show or join you to a movie without the awkwardness of dating app, this is the app to do exactly that and meet people. Whitney Wolfe is a woman who wants to simply help people connect while also empowering women. Bumble is the app that is going to create more change in the world and educate people in new ways.
