Will popular dating platform Bumble succeed as a business app?

Posted: Oct 30, 2017

Dating app Bumble will roll out networking functionality this fall.

Called BumbleBizz, the networking feature will work just like the dating app and Bumble's friend-finding functionality, BumbleBFF. Users will swipe right or left on potential networking connections. If it's a match, a woman in the pairing will have to reach out within 24 hours, or the match will expire.

Users will, however, be able to create professionally-geared profiles on BumbleBizz that are kept distinct from their dating profiles.
