How Bumble works

Bumble is very similar to other apps and social networks. It is necessary for the user to create a profile, upload photos and then start matching with the people that one likes.

However, in the case of heterosexual couples, women are the ones who must send the first message, otherwise they will not be able to chat. All this with the aim of promoting “respect, kindness and the empowerment of women”. In addition to looking for romantic relationships, Bumble also has other functions:

1. Bumble Date: a place for users to find dates.

2. Bumble BFF: a place for users to find platonic friendships.

3. Bumble Bizz: a place for users looking for a mentor, professional connections, or to advance their career.
