About Bumble BFF
Bumble BFF is application that makes women be the hunters instead of being the hunted. The application gives ladies the chance to make the first move such that a conversation will automatically vanish if a woman does not say something in the connections within 24 hours. Bumble BFF gives the option to make the initial communication with a potential date to women only.
How the Bubble BFF Works
It is possible to communicate in both ways using a Bumble BFF App. Bumble BFF gives women a limited amount of time to connect through messaging. Unlike in Bumble where same-sex dating has a communication platform that is identical, Bumble BFF extension allows women to view profiles of other women interested in platonic friends. Bumble BFF users are first required to download the Bumble App and fill in their bio information then sign using individual Facebook accounts. Subscribers are then required to click on the settings tab which is on the Bumble app to switch to BFF mode.
Goals of Bumble BFF
Bumble BFF came as a result of gender discrimination that Whitney Wolfe had experienced from her co-founders of Tinder dating platform. Therefore, Whitney Wolfe decided to create an app that would give women an option to make their decision independently. As a result, she created the Bumble BFF extension that aimed at empowering women connections. Bumble BFF has since given women the power and ability to create a network full of supportive individuals.
