Whitney Wolfe, the founder of Bumble, has created a new app that is different from the original app, but works in tandem on the same application if individuals already have the Bumble app. The app named “BumbleBFF” works in much the same way as the existing Bumble app. In order to use BumbleBFF users must download the Bumble app which will ask the user to sign into Facebook. BumbleBFF uses the Facebook algorithms to link people to potential friends with the same interests and tastes. Once the system finds potential friends with the same interests, users can view each person and swipe left if the user is not interested. Potential matches will sit in the app for review for 24 hours before being removed as inactive.
