Bumble is a location-based social and dating application which facilitates communication between interested users.
In heterosexual matches, the app permits only women to start a chat with their male matches, while in same-sex matches either party can message first, though all free users must reply to messages within 24 hours or the match disappears.
If you make a match, you can commence Instagram- or Facebook-stalking to learn more — at least that’s what we do.
We're here to help you with that first step: Figuring out which dating app is worth your homescreen space in the first place.
Three free "backtracks" are provided initially, which are replenished every three hours.
Users have the option to immediately receive a new set of three backtracks by sharing Bumble on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, although they are limited to one of these refills per day.
Before the update, men were allowed unlimited time to respond to a message from women which the company viewed as an uneven playing field.
The update was also launched for same-sex matches, with either party allowed to initiate and the other having to respond within 24 hours.
If you’ve found someone who meets your desires, then warm their heart with messages, virtual gifts or start chatting right away.
The dating experience is also fully customizable with token-based perks and gold membership.
Bumble launched a photo verification tool in September 2016 to ensure that users of the app were the same people in their profile pictures.
To be verified, users are asked to submit a selfie of them performing a specific pose, the picture is reviewed by a real person who ensures the user is the person in the profile pictures.
The site was brought to life with the premise of serving the needs of aging daters, and has therefore developed features specifically for this niche audience.
