Bumble, the women empowered dating app launched a new vertical that focuses on building business relations. Now, the female users can create their business or professional profile within the app. Bumble Bizz is the name given to the new section which aims at the professional qualification of the user.
Launched in 2104, Bumble app is a dating platform that is used by over 21 million users across the globe. The app helps the people in finding friends, building valuable relationships and widening the network. The catch about the app is that it allows only the female users to make the first move on any other profile. The app changed the archaic rules of dating platforms by empowering the women's.
In heterosexual matches, women make the first move and they have only 24 hours to make the move and the man has 24 hours to respond to it. However, in homosexual matches, either of the person needs to make the first move within 24 hours while the other individual has 24 hours to respond.
With the launch of Bumble Bizz, the app allows the users to add professional history and portfolios and images that will be verified by Bumble team. Bumble Bizz is the separate part of the app and its profile are kept individually showcasing all user’s professional information. However, the function of swiping left and right to match a profile is same to find a potential business partner. The feature is initially available in the U.S., the U.K., France, Canada, and Germany on October 2.
“We designed Bumble to be a platform that encourages positive, impactful interactions in love, friendship, and now business. By empowering women to make the first move in Bumble Bizz, we expect to see the same positive behavior and low abuse rates we’ve seen on our other platforms.” Bumble said in a press release.
