Whitney Wolfe is the CEO of Bumble which is a female orientated dating site. This site has about 28 million users and it is the only app where women make the first move. That’s right fellas, you can’t just walk up and talk to a pretty girl on this app. You have to hope that she decides to pick you. This novel approach is what separates Bumble from other dating sites.
However, Bumble has some basic features and mechanics that are similar to other dating sites. As a matter of fact, Tinder is stating that Whitney Wolfe and her company stole some of their patented dating technology. That is the basis of their lawsuit against Herd’s company.
Whitney Wolfe used to be a member of the Tinder dating site as their co-founder. She was around when the site was first started, and she did her part to help get the site up and running. Eventually, she had to leave Tinder because she was apparently being marginalized because of her gender status. She was also sexually harassed while on the job. She had won a previous lawsuit against Tinder as the result of sexual harassment and gender discrimination.
Keep in mind that Bumble is not just a company that promotes online dating. This company is a strong supporter of women’s rights and gender equality. They are linked with various social movements such as the #MeTooMovement and they have linked themselves with the March for Our Lives Protests which stood out against gun violence. As a matter of fact, Whitney Wolfe stopped allowing most users to post pictures with weapons on her site.
Tinder wanted Whitney Wolfe to sell her company to them for $450 million dollars. Whitney Wolfe “swiped left” to this offer because she did not want to sell out her organization. Tinder is now suing her for adopting their patented technology to use on her site. As CEO, Whitney Wolfe states that she did not steal features and site mechanics from Tinder. The two online dating companies are now locked in court battle to determine if Bumble will have to change their site’s format or if Tinder will finally leave Bumble alone. Wolfe, is expecting that the case will be won in her favor and that Bumble will emerge victorious.
According to a new article by Uloop, the company Skout has found that college students are apt to be involved in random acts of kindness. The survey that Skout conducted has produced some quite fantastic and interesting results. The results of the survey indicate that Skout is responsible for networking with individuals who are caring and kind towards strangers.

Every memorable era of our time has had a time defining and life changing event or major phenomenal. From the age of the great inventors, the wars, renaissance and the industrialization eras, the world has come a long way. When the term ‘global village’ was coined, no one ever thought it was a defining moment for another era; the internet age. It’s here with us and we have embraced it whole heartedly. Being social beings and offered such a great networking platform, what is a man to do?! Many foresighted people have greatly exploited the opportunity presented, if the number of social networking and online dating platforms available is anything to go by.
Dating and having global social networks as it was a century ago has tremendously changed. Previously a preserve of travelers and business merchants, the whole world is now just a click away. Online dating is what has been borne out of the internet. Numerous phone applications sprout everyday, in a bid to capitalize on our social aspect. The social media, as it is known, has given rise to building of previously unfathomable, social networks. The global village is here with us in a huge way; nowadays, anything can be done online. Companies are reportedly making more sales online but the one thing that has really changed is the way people interact. All our social problems are being solved on social networking problem.
One application that has really caught global attention is Skout. The App has gradually succeeded in changing our travel experiences. As most of you already know, through experience or otherwise, traveling to a place for a first time can be quite a daunting task. This is especially so, if you have no contacts in your area of desired travel. The mobile application was initially started to help users make new friends in different cities. Another reason was to enable a user establish contacts in a desired destination. The company has been greatly successful with both of its goals. It has received global acclaim, with over 200 million people using the Skout and Instagram mobile application. This is set to keep increasing, with a rising interest in people, especially young adults, to travel and see the world.
However, with every great revolution, there’s a flipside to it. The rise in online dating and social networking platforms have led to a fast paced societal moral decay. It is happening in such a big way that there’s no option left but to accept it as the new way of life. Stripping naked and posting negative images on the social media is no longer a big deal. Even worse, trolling and stalking victims are on the rise. Suicides have been reported in every major city in the world, as a consequence of these practices. It’s a great sigh of relief for a company of global repute as Skout, to totally disallow some bad practices, even though popular. A case in hand is the company’s announcement to bring down and disallow any nude pictures posted, especially in bath areas.
